A VIEW OF THE WORLD THROUGH MY CAMERA LENS

Instagram essay

While I was waiting for the Tour of Qatar 2015 second stage to start, I was approached by few fishermen based in Al Wakrah Port. After greetings and some small talk, the idea of a photo essay for Instagram played with my imagination. I quickly took out my Xperia Z3 Compact, switched to B&W and started taking photos. All the images are as shot with the phone using the Camringo Lite app (which I strongly recommend) and with no edits.


Moments

“For children, childhood is timeless. It is always the present. Everything is in the present tense. Of course, they have memories. Of course, time shifts a little for them and Christmas comes round in the end. But they don’t feel it. Today is what they feel, and when they say ‘When I grow up,’ there is always an edge of disbelief—how could they ever be other than what they are?” ― Ian McEwan

“When you are a child you are yourself and you know and see everything prophetically. And then suddenly something happens and you stop being yourself; you become what others force you to be. You lose your wisdom and your soul.” ― Jean Rhys

A pose of expectation

Deeply within we lie hidden. You do not know me any longer and I do not laugh with you anymore but the dream still stands in a pose of expectation.

Daca

DacaDacă s-ar putea vreodată
Să măsori nemăsuratul,
Să cuprinzi nemărginirea,
Să stai, străbătând neantul,
Să fii nici unul, nici altul.

Dacă s-ar putea vreodată
Neiubind să fii iubirea,
Nesperând să fii speranţa,
Nevorbind să fii vorbirea,
Negândind să fii gândirea.

DacaDacă s-ar putea vreodată
Să auzi neauzitul,
Să priveşti în nevăzut
Şi să afli neştiutul,
Ar urma iar începutul?
