flames, veils and desire

What remains in the shadow or covered always will be much more exciting and intriguing than what it’s obviously visible. A twist of secret will rise our curiosity, isn’t it?
Depictions of a sexual nature are as old as civilization with depictions such as the Venus figurines existing since prehistoric times. Now days more than 70% of men from 18 to 34 visit one, more or less pornographic site in an average month. According to compiled numbers from respected news and research organizations, every second $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography. Every second 28,258 internet users are viewing pornography. In that same second 372 internet users are typing adult search terms into search engines. But the internet still is not the most popular form of getting pornography.
Pornography is the portrayal of explicit sexual subject, but still, I think the mystery is much more exciting. Read more flames, veils and desire

Give me the Blue(s)

“Blue is a colour, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 440–490 nm and on the frequency ~680–610 THz. It is considered one of the additive primary colours. On the HSV Colour Wheel, the complement of blue is yellow; that is, a colour corresponding to an equal mixture of red and green light. On a colour wheel based on traditional colour theory (RYB) where blue was considered a primary colour, its complementary colour is considered to be orange (based on the Munsell colour wheel).The English language commonly uses “blue” to refer to any colour from navy blue to cyan. The word itself is derived from the Old French word bleu.
In English, blue often represents the human emotion of sadness, for example, “He was feeling blue”. In German, on the other hand, to be “blue” (blau sein) is to be drunk. This derives from the ancient use of urine (which is produced copiously by the human body after drinking alcohol) in dyeing cloth blue with woad or indigo. It may also be in relation to rain, which is usually regarded as a trigger of depressive emotions. Read more Give me the Blue(s)

This site is selfishly about me, myself and I. But nothing on this world make no goddamn sense if we do not share it with somebody. It’s not “showing off”, but the desperate need to communicate in a world more and more alienated where we’re less and less comfortable with our self, our emptiness and we’re running and hiding in the dark or in the safety of  anonymity of the internet. Well, I’m not proud of myself but I wear my skin as it is, I try to make peace with my own and accept myself as I am. I won’t ask this much from you, don’t worry!

Love and other oddities

There’s a thin line between love and hate and sometimes we may slip over without noticing. Don’t matter how weird it may sounds, extremes over-lapping each other and sometimes melt into one. There’s a small step from indifference to desire, as well as between love and hate and back all over. The human being are a strange creature and there’s no Freudian coach to explain our weirdness. Any attempt to create any kind of pattern to explain the human behavior I believe it’s useless. We are same as we are absolutely unique and different. The human soul is a muddy and unexplainable universe.
Actually I believe we don’t have the same reaction regarding the same particular aspect at different moments on the time line. And not only because things and we are changing. Just because. Emotions have no patterns, our reaction is unpredictable. Things which may be unacceptable from our point of view once, today or tomorrow may stir up our interest. That’s how we really are even if it’s hard to accept, it’s difficult to face our self. Read more Love and other oddities


The Resurrection is featured prominently in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scriptures while the death and resurrection of Jesus is the central focus of Christianity. Resurrection is a false promise meant to tempered our fear before death or it’s an expression of hope? I was always preoccupied why in The New Testament are four Gospels  – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – telling consequently the same story with few differences. I always felt it is a kind of need to proof and confirm this story, rather than record historical facts. The story of resurrection of Jesus is ambiguous just like his life between infancy and baptism. It’s pretty strange why Mary Magdalene was almost erased from all of the Gospels, but she play the main role in the resurrection of Jesus, actually being the first person to see Jesus after he rose from the dead, according to John 20 and Mark 16:9.

lights and fractals – a trip into abstract

What we see it’s really what it is? I mean, blue is really blue, a wall it’s really a wall or the sky is above or… beyond? What we can see, smell and touch, this world and this reality it’s the only “real thing”? Well, I don’t have a scientific answer, but I’m not so sure. Maybe everything if it comes down to zeros and ones may look different. And maybe there’s an unseen,  parallel universe. Or two. 😀

“Messing up” pictures it’s a fun full activity at least. Digitally speaking, there’s infinite possibilities and options, variable experiments and million of effects can be used. There’s one of my trips into a parallel universe build from actually ordinary images. Have fun! 🙂 Read more lights and fractals – a trip into abstract

Drawing with light

The term “heliography” was first coined by its inventor, Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, to identify the process by which he obtained the first permanent photographic images. With its classical derivation from the Greek “helios” meaning sun, and “graphein” denoting writing or drawing. The term encompassed both the source and the process in describing this first successfully permanent means of letting light record itself.  In other words: drawing with light.
Niépce was the first individual to secure permanent images by photochemical means.
Louis Daguerre and Joseph Nicéphore Niépce coated a copper plate with silver, then treated it with iodine|iodine vapor to make it sensitive to light. The image was developed by mercury vapor and fixed with a strong solution made of ordinary salt. Read more Drawing with light

The Purple Queens

I can smell the sunshine, spring is here again. It’s refreshing to throw away the neckerchief, the heavy overcoat and enjoy a little bit of freedom, anyway, at least some kind of illusion of it. I took this pictures back in 2009 in the backyard of a nice and quiet church near to the central railway station in the heart of Bucharest.
Magnolia is an ancient genus. Having evolved before bees appeared, the flowers developed to encourage pollination by beetles. Fossilised specimens of M. acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the Magnoliaceae dating to 95 million years ago.

Magnolia figo is also called “Purple Queen”. Read more The Purple Queens
