U2 are singing the “One”. Their lyrics make rounds in my head… “Love is a temple. Love the higher law.” It is not the first time these ideas meet me. I studied Antigone of Sophocles in my youth. She lost her life because she had put her love for her brother above any law and any power. But, this is a story for a different post.
The truth is that when you are obsessed with photography you want to shoot everything and anytime. Fortunately, my husband has the same passion for analogic photography and my 6 years-old son has an extensive curiosity for everything. So, they understand my madness. And, when mom takes out the eggs from the fridge to make a ham and cheese omelet, they find it usual that she stops everything in order to take a few shots of the eggs first. Of course, these were not just any chicken eggs. They were home-raised by my parents-in-law in their village. They were small, perfectly similar and had a harmonious color degradation. The first was beige, the second light beige, and the third all white. I loved both color and the BW photos for their minimalistic elegance.
A few days before a friend uploaded a photo on instagram from my favorite Prespes region only to remind me how differently scapes look not only from season to season, but also from day to day. Weather and light can transform completely the scenery and I think that this is one of the reasons landscape photography is so endlessly. It’s also so inspirational to make series of photos from the same point of view taken in different time and with different weather. The scenes compared would have many things to surprise us!
