Illusioned

This is me trying to see if I've been losing my touch. No photomanipulation, just adjustments to the color and contrast. 5 second exposure.

 

My 85% completely packed luggage sits on my bedroom floor as I type. There has been a short delay in my travels thanks to weather, but I leave tomorrow for Europe with a sackful of film so all is well.

 

Lately I've been fearing that as my devotion to music increases, my fire for photography wanes. I do not enjoy this prospect but I can't lie and say that music isn't my number one priority now. I hope to be more active artistically now that the semester is over and there is time, but it's never my intention to put my photos on the back shelf. I would love to create something more than once a month!

 

I've also been very absent for more than just the usual reason of trying to stay offline...I'm finally tired to death of our modern system of communication. To be honest, I enjoy being unreachable. Nowadays if you don't respond to an email or a text in under 5 minutes people think you're either rude or there must be something wrong with you. I just prefer to take my time.

 

p.s. While I'm away I may or may not have internet.

p.p.s. Looks like this is my new icon now. =)

 

TTV, Argus Super 75, shot with a 100mm macro lens. Wanna know how?
