I know, I know. Flowers!
So many times I wrote on this blog how much I dislike 'Flickr's Explore kind of photos' and here I am posting one.
There is a perfectly good explanation for this, I swear!
First of all, it's been almost three months since I took my last photo and I got kind of rusty, but even more important - These flowers are the final touch in my new apartment. That's it, I'm done.
All in place, sitting on the couch, legs resting on the table, watching my big screen TV and these flowers were given to me by my new neighbors as a welcoming gift. Life is good.
Of course, that raises an interesting issue - How much are we affected by the feeling the photo raises in us when it was taken, when we come to test the result?
Photo (any other piece of art) suppose to reveal artists' inner world. But if the world is represented by something so mundane and cliche like bouquet of flowers? Or maybe the story behind this is just an excuse for me to upload such a ... bad(?)... photo?
To other matters - This weeks' favorite blog is of a very talented photographer that goes by the name - Francesco Gallarotti (or @gallarotti on Twitter). When looking at his photos, you must read his posts as well. Will always makes you think. And feel inspired. Plus - You can always enjoy his online photo magazine - Green Tea Gallery
