Day 139: Library of Quirks

I spent yesterday visiting different book stores in Brooklyn. I’ll admit that i’m not the biggest reading enthusiast. I prefer picture books. I pay attention to the way letters look, rather than read them. But still, books hold a wonderful charm to them, just as do book stores. Safe, cozy, and organized.

Then I got the chance to peek into the city’s Community BookStore. Different, chaotic, quirky. I may not read many books, but they sure are beautiful to take photos of.

Day 137: Blurred Lights

I fell a little behind on the days, and my camera lens broke the other day, but i’ll upload what I can. New York is a wild experience of every flavor. There is diversity everywhere and even in the ugliest parts there’s an unexpected charm. But what I love most is when you blur the lights a little, everything starts looking the same.

Day 132: Seeing Through Filters

A camera only helps me become aware of the lenses that I use to filter the world. But really, I know i’m wearing different filters constantly. Anything I see, perceive or experience is just going to be filtered through my own personal lens. And just imagine that every person in the world has their own unique filter.

How the heck are you supposed to live in a world that’s so subjective?

Day 131: Going for the Plunge

I’ve been thinking for a while to resume my 365. It’s been nearly 3 years since I started it, and I suppose it gets harder and harder to “resume” this project. Mostly because now I have an idea of what kind of commitment it takes and I feel i’ve resigned myself to not getting anywhere close to the goal.

Anyway, I’m hoping to post this quickly before I change my mind. Go for the plunge and i’ll figure out how to get myself out of it later.

Transparency

Yesterday’s spontaneous photoshoot was entirely satisfying. I love setting the mood of a photo with such simple elements: a cloudy and wet afternoon. Handprints. Wax paper and a car windshield.
