Sometimes, the light is better when the sun has already set. Although, you must be willing to play with it…the light, if you are not quick it will run away from you and you might be left lost in the dark…
Once in Vientiane, you must also mind the river. Just put the river on your mind before you arrive and stay close to it.
In the coming days I will post some images from Vientiane, Laos. Most of them will be included in a collection of images I have been working on for the past 6 months. The collection is named The Forgotten capital. I will give you more information about the collection and my work as we go along.
Unfortunately, I have no prints for sale of this collection nor can I have an exhibition yet…there is no money. However, I’m working on it. Someone, tell my wife.
If you are thinking about going just go! Don’t think twice. I have been there many times and every time I go I always have lots of fun. I also love photographing Bangkok. There are so many things to photograph on the streets and in the temples. Most people don’t mind when you take their picture and for the most part Thai people are very friendly. Beware of the Tuk Tuk drivers though, they can be tricky. (Tuk Tuk is the Thai name for motorized rickshaws).
I hope all is well with you and that you are realising all your dreams.
It seems impossible for me to post often and regularly. You have to apologise me for that.
But, it’s better to post something sometimes rather than never, don’t you think?
In this post I am going to show you some general impressions of Gothenburg. Trust me, just because I categorise these impressions as general, it does not mean that I have not put any effort in the collection or editing of these images. My back is soar from sitting in front of the computer for so long at a time. My wife had to massage me for an hour because of the pain. I feel much better now, especially since the collection and organisation of this new series is done. However, only the first set that I am posting now is edited and ready for the web.
This series is divided in three sets and the theme is quite general, as mentioned earlier, but like most of my other post it has to do with human behaviour and environments.
Emotionally, this series has an roller-coaster effect on me…it has its dark moments but there is also light. Like everything else in this world. The photos has come about from me just wondering around with my camera, like I mostly do (and enjoy doing). As you will probably notice when viewing the images, my intention has not been to show you the obvious and unquestionable, rather I would like you to think a little bit about what is going on in the images. Make up your own stories, if you please. What kind of place do you think Gothenburg is? What kind of people is living there and what are their interests?
My images will of course answer non of those questions objectively. They only represent the photographers subjective categorisation and perspective. You have to be the interpreter and paint them with your imagination.
I hope you enjoy the images and have a great weekend.
