Barthes Vision

Spring winds have brought about some exciting times - I have my first ever photo up on display for the world to see. Real life photo, in flesh and blood (okay, not quite that real, but close enough - see!). In other words - I participated in Barthes Vision photo contest organised by the French Institute of Estonia. The photo submitted had to illustrate one of the fourteen Barthes quotes (more info here) and I chose the following quote to go with the photo above (Coney Island, New York, November 2014):
Colouring the world is always a means to deny it. / Colorier le monde, c’est toujours un moyen de le nier. 
My photo is one of the ten winning photos chosen for the exhibition. So it was printed and hung up alongside other nine best works (some amazing stuff there!) at Viru keskus - a shopping center at the heart of Tallinn. The exhibition is open until June 26th if you happen to be in town and have a thing for French philosophers and/or photography.


Week 18: Texture

We were adventuring with my mom and found some rock-like things we hadn't seen before in the neighbourhood. Happy Mother's Day to all mums!

Week 17: Urbanscape

Linnahall (former concert/sports venue; currently semi-abandoned) cannot be described in words. I am glad I decided to go there for this week's theme and I ended up taking a ton of photos (too many and not enough). Here's a handful (I plan on sharing more on my Flickr account in near future). There's something charming about the place. Perhaps 'cos it's a distorted link to my childhood (and Tallinn has changed so much over the years that hardly anything does that anymore). I used to go there for concerts and Christmas spectacles and to see figure skating. It used to be big and important. It's still big. For now. The ultimate nostalgia fix. By the sea. On a sunny Sunday.
