Monthly fragments; September 2014

Strange September. Hot and wet, like in the tropics. Everyone has returned to their jobs  – or the lack of it – after vacations. Everything seems to follow its normal corse. And yet, I feel there’s this emptiness I can´t quite put my finger on. I’m having some trouble connecting emotionally with this net of trivial events that unfolds every year, regarding the places I usually go and the people who populate them. People are more or less gone, I feel. They are still there, walking, talking and eating but their minds are absent. And my mind is absent to. I feel it because it’s been hard to find interesting enough subjects on the streets to the point of making me want to take pictures. Everything seems copied from something I have already seen. So, I’m closing myself to the great outside for a while, and will try to focus on the tiny details closer to me. Makes sense? I’ not sure, yet…

      I like to play with the notion of size and scale. It felt a good opportunity to make those streaks of rock look like a great river and Zé to look like a giant. Thanks for commenting, Angelina.
