Afterthoughts

Re: Together

This image is creepy. Much more creepy than any other of my photos. Well, you can still enjoy its colorite, the misty atmosphere, consider it just a good joke or appreciate the idea of mirror symmetry. However, when I look it longer, I got shievers. And I am afraid, this happened to many of you too. Or at least you felt uneasyness and disturbance. The creepiest things are not the most horrible-looking ones. At first glance the creepiest things look quite normal and ordinary. And then suddenly you realize, that something is basically and inevitably wrong. I am not speaking about possible homosexual allures (who cares nowadays!) but let’s start with the costumes. When people wear similar things, we call it a fashion. They wear these things on their own free will and this imposes no obligations on them. When people wear exactly similar things, we call it uniform(s) and this is something completely different. Uniform warns us immediately, that beside (and above) usual personal human relations we may have with such a person, he/she has obligations to obey rules strange and maybe unknown to us. What do you think are the goals an order is pursuing, whose members are wearing such uniforms? Imagine you start to see such people more and more frequently in your usual environment and there is no explanation to what this could mean. And going deeper – at first glance you may even have an impression that there still are some differences beside the mirror symmetry. A more careful look shows that there is none. OK, this is just an image processing. Try now to imagine, that you see this in reality. Then what?

Noche Buena







A mirror hug



What are they looking with such an excitement? Well ... as far as they are standing in front of a mirror and the image is the reflection ... Eugenie and Taavi are looking at Diana and Diana is looking at herself :) Or this is my guess, at least.

And this makes the Plink-Plonk story for this time. Thanks again, D!

Where are you looking!?







(This is to the right girl on the two top images) You should look at the photographer as the left girl is doing!

Party





Tnx, D!


And, folks, keep in mind that it will take about a week or so to get all the pictures up. And other topics may break in, so come back frequently :) D will have the full set, including those I'm not going to post here (too good:)

Väljas on veebruar juba ...



No ega ei ole ikka küll ... jaanuarinigi veel tükk aega. Ja üldse tuleks talveunne minna. Aga kus sa sellega, fotograafiline aktiivsus jälle tõusmas. No mis jama siis nüüd lahti? :) (Just some fuzzy thoughts, no sense to translate them).

Trees in snow


It seems I'm entering my negative period.

Oil

Sandstone cliff


on Ahja River, South Estonia. Over millennia waters have carved marvellous walls and caves into Devonian sandstones and formed sights worth of seeing. In Estonian they are called “taevaskojad”, which could be translated as “heavenly halls” or “halls of heaven”. As to the size, nothing to compare to Colorado or even to Saxonian Switzerland on Elbe, but Estonia is miniature in general. Either hiking or canoeing on river is good way to visit these places and the best idea is to do both. Canoes can be rented on spot on moderate price. And do not forget your camera! :)

These damned messages can shake you out of balance for several days. Good, if not for longer.

Good to keep those f*****g bloodsuckers away.
Tnx for the idea, Kadri!

Täht mu toas / Star in my room



And the lights at the bottom left? An UFO approaching? Perhaps the same you once tried to show me at the lake shore? Remember? Me looking along your stretched arm and you pointing to something in the night skies I could not see ...

Mycophotonics (R)



Seems to be a brand new word, Google Search showed nothing. I even do not know, what does it exactly mean. Something related to light and mushrooms, perhaps :)

Angels in snow



Re: Beware angels!

What is all this about angels? Simply because this bridge in Tartu is called the Angel's Bridge.

An autumn photographer



What makes a good photo(grapher)?
1. Going to the right place in right time.
2. Doing right things at the spot.
3. Selection and post-processing.
4. All that follows: competitions, exhibitions, publishing etc.
Apparently you can not become a good photographer, when posting photos at your blog only. Not that I like to be one. Still I like to make good photos :)

Beware angels!



It’s striking, that I perceive this image as looking in the opposite direction. And more striking is, how strong this feeling is. Even knowing, that it isn’t so, I can’t do anything about it. Of course, the statue at the end of the alley, that unmistakably indicates the direction, is not so well visible, but still ... Is the reason for this that I want to look in the opposite direction? Even now.

Girls' power







On the last Saturday morning (09.10.10) the police and the paramilitaries from Kaitseliit blocked for an hour all the bridges over the river Emajõgi in Tartu. Kind an exercise. These are images from this action. Some more will follow.

OK, I'll try now to deal with France in a more systematic way and to conclude this topic in 10 days or so.

River Emajõgi







Autumn shores







Views from the boat.

"Мертвые корабли"





Praaga - Varnja

Нет, конечно не те, бальмонтовские. Здешние тихо и мирно отслужили свой срок, не уходя далеко от родных берегов. Но где-то там, в призрачном свете полярного сияния
"Между льдов затерты, спят в тиши морей
Остовы немые мертвых кораблей ..."
Такое-бы снять ...

What's going on there?
