why is it that i stopped taking photographs 'seriously'
i do not know. i realized that in the past three years, i have been thinking in soundwaves
. even when i look at these pictures, i hear a certain soundscape - the whirr of the air-condition, the drilling from a distant renovation, loud bus engines stopping and moving off, crickets, tv from the neighboring room, fans turning.. some too indistinct for me to conjure.
the stillness i enjoyed the past few days have opened a slight door into the room where my thoughts used to be - far away from what i would share legitimately every night in my four hours. i am certain now that the four hours of jarring pop tunes exhausted me. i am thinking of ways to cure that. maybe i'll turn off the speakers while i'm at work for two hours
. i'll dream more about shadows and light and how they make me feel. i'll note them down and link them to my emotions. i'll try to express how i feel by writing about light and re-imagine my words into pictures. for the new year.
