crowds. by seeinglight crowds. by seeinglight
I'm sorry I've been late with posting recently. I'm just not in the mood for photography at the moment.

However, I plan to revisit some older concepts. This one is a new take on the photograph I did with the swedish fish a couple months ago.

It's more about standing out in crowds. I feel like a faceless crane most of the time, just carefully folded white paper and nothing more. I keep waiting for something to paint me red, but I never seems to happen.

I didn't shoot today, for day 48. I plan to paint later, but seeing as a probably won't post it, I'll answer both questions here.

47. What has life taught you recently?
Recently, life has taught me that being in love kind of sucks and almost never works out. Notice, I said almost.
Also, I've learned that some people really do notice when you do nice things for them over and over.

48. What is the one thing you would most like to change about the world?
Ah, this is really good question for my mood.
I would like to change how close-minded people are, how opposed everyone is to the differences of others. I would like for people to speak their minds more, to say things that were harder for them to talk about without the fear of judgement.
And I would like for children to not have to suffer when they realize that the world has horrible things in it.

Please leave a comment, if you like it!

I love this concept, being a loner in a crowd can be a blessing or a curse but it is what makes an ordinary person an artist, beautifully executed :clap:

How really interesting. I like what you did better than with the old one (though the old one is still cool, too, because it shows where the fish is *not*).

I love the way the red crane is so prominent in not just its colour, or how the way all of the other cranes are not in focus, but I can even see all of the fibres of the texture of the red crane and that the red crane is looking the opposite way of all the others. There are so many little details that make this picture so amazing.

Standing out in crowds isn't always a good thing mind! :)
(and when you get to my age - you kind of realise that the weird ones are the most interesting usually :D )

I like the blurr and the focus on the red crane.
This picture reminds me of a postcard I have, which depicts cats and is called "The Conformist" : all the cats are black and asleep but two : one is red and one is awake. I like the concept of this picture which that one can look different but is not as much different as one who looks like all the other but is actually not. I feel the same looking at your photo : but here the one who looks different actually is : it is red (look) and it is straight (is).

What are the harder things for you to talk about ? (you don't really have to answer if you don't feel like doing so, but I'd like to know : the best way to keep one's mind open is to keep knowing others, or so I think)

I sort of mean.. things that aren't socially acceptable. I have a quote on my profile page that describes this well. I want to ask people what they're thinking, to say.. "How are you feeling today?" and get an honest answer. I want to talk about what I'm afraid of and the adventures I want to have.
But I can't, because people would think I was a freak.

I really there are a lot of people who feel the same out there. And it's more easy to meet them now than it has ever been thanks to internet. If you want to talk, I'd be glad to listen, I'm sure I won't think you're a freak, for I'm quite one myself. And though it is not as great as to really speak with someone, it can already be a beginning

Thank you, I might take you up on that (:
