Time Out Sunday


What feels really good? To have a new monitor calibrator! My old one was well... old (though in retrospect it worked well beyond the recommended three years; the major obstacle being no more software updates). Then again - who needs screens and calibrators when one can just make colour photos in full analog.


In some magical moment I actually pulled myself together and organised my prints from the darkroom days (not in 1917, but rather in 2017) and had a small pile of photos that didn't make the cut. Spur of a moment thing I decided to try colouring them and it was so much fun. Used my very old watercolour set (bless my hoarder soul; I am prepared for all kinds of situations) and I mean, the rest is history (like literally history as well, these days we have colour photography and all those screens). But boy oh boy, if those aren't dreamscapes, I don't know what are. Time out Sunday done right.

Time Out Sunday


I took photos of the Moon this week. This is not how you do it. I mean, you have different lens, you go outside and... but guess what, you can also just have a spontaneous bedroom shoot at midnight 'cos you feel like it. Kit lens. Squeezing yourself out from the narrow window (man, do I miss big wide windows with big wide windowsills or what). And I mean, double-triple-... exposure (in-camera). Fun fun fun. 



I have started a free MoMA online course 'Seeing Through Photographs' and I have enjoyed it more than I had expected (low expectations is my jam?!). There are more courses available and I intend to enrol for some more, you know not sticking to the familiar (but oh don't I just love photography!).  



And some tunes (my current playlist is either Taylor Swift or jazz classics):
