Downtown, NYC, April 2005

Today, I found this at a door downtown:
"Wars kill for money, art saves lives for free."
It's trivial; however, it's worth to think of it every day, especially in a country that is at war, not accidentally but self initiated.

Submission for "The Photoblogs Magazine Challenge"

I just submitted the following photograph to the Photoblogs Magazine Challenge by Nitsa:

Two weeks after I took this shot, Gabriele was diagnosed with cancer. Later, I realized that this picture anticipated it all.

She wrote these words to this picture:

Hesitating for a moment
between now and tomorrow –
life will change in no time.

Self Publishing

I just found the post "PUBLISHING YOUR OWN BOOK" by Dave Pollard. It gives lot information about the issue and shows different possibilities.
I left the comment: "[...] I wasn’t aware that there is such a market for self-publishing and I think it’s a great chance to show your work to a different public. I love the internet, because it gives you a very affordable possibility of self publishing; however, I see two major disadvantages in internet publishing: i) only people with internet access can see your work and ii) I believe that written text and – for my case – photographs have a kind of artificial effect on the reader/viewer when seen on a screen. It’s such a good feeling to have a beautiful book in your hands!"

Boy with Cigarette and Earring

Madison Square Park, March 2005

I'm not quite sure what fascinated me on that shot. It’s technically not perfect; nevertheless, has something that made me not deleting it. I think it’s a kind tension between the eyes in the shadow and the extreme bright light that shines from the background.

Streetlamp grows out of arm

Fifth Avenue, New York, March 2005

Actually, I’ve nearly deleted this one, but then I’ve seen exactly that scene at several other photoblogs. Maybe, someone likes my interpretation.
