Sometimes I dream

… about being a good father and a good husband. And sometimes it feels really close. But then other times it seems silly like it would ruin my whole life. And it’s not just a fear of commitment or that I’m incapable of caring or loving because… I can. It’s just that, if I’m totally honest with myself I think I’d rather die knowing that I was really good at something. That I had excelled in some way than that I’d just been in a nice, caring relationship. Before Sunrise – Quotes

OK, well this was my thought…

50,000 years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. 10,000 years ago, there’s, like, two million people on the planet. Now there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? You know, are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls? ‘Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000 to 1 split of each soul in the last 50,000 years, which is, like, a blip in the Earth’s time. You know, so at best we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking‚Ķ I mean, is that why we’re so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized? – Before Sunrise Quotes

If there’s any kind of magic in this world…

it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know it’s almost impossible to succeed‚Ķ but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt. – Before Sunrise Quotes

The Old Way

Lately, I have a little lack of motivation. So I had to try something new/old. After a long time I took in hands my old camera, which I received as a gift a few years ago, the Fujica ST705w and the classic Kodak bw400cn (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures). What a feeling when you smell a film and load it in the camera. Since you have only 36 shots, you’re thinking a little differently when and how you will press the shutter release button.

And then you waiting ‚Ķ you do not know what you’ve done, or the image is in focus, or the lighting is right. And finally you get a developed negative film… what a joy. I still remember how it used to be when you developed a negative film after traveling and then that waiting. Yes I’m old almost like my Fujica.

Dilemma

I sit in front of my computer and watch photos … what should I post this time? Ljubljana? Vienna? Paris? Warsaw?
I have a lot of problems with these posts. I post photos on Instagram, where I have two accounts; Facebook also has two accounts, WordPress ‚Ķ and sometimes I’m lost. I do not know where I posted something ‚Ķ stupid me.
Do you also have such problems?

And now also a brand new WordPress editor‚Ķ I’m lost.

LOVE

I noticed this sign in the window… but I already knew that. Paris is love or I’m in love with Paris.

You know, I think that book that I wrote, in a way, was like building something. So that I wouldn’t forget the… details of the time that we spent together. You know, like just a reminder that… that once we really did meet! You know, that this was real! That this happened! – Before Sunset Quotes

And something similar is with my photos, I would not like to forget … I don’t know how to write books or blog, but I can take photos at least I think so.

You know what’s the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you? It’s when you remember how little you thought about the people you broke up with and you realize that is how little they’re thinking of you. You know, you’d like to think you’re both in all this pain but they’re just like “Hey, I’m glad you’re gone”. – Before Sunrise quote

 

And this is all about travel this year, at least I think … now I am preparing for the next year.

Vienna

… or Wien…¬†So I’m back and I’m editing my thoughts and feelings. I walked almost 100 kilometers in six days, which is not bad and I made around 800 photos with camera and phone.

What to say about Vienna? Like Ljubljana, of course much much bigger, it is very crowded on tourist attractions, but the next street is almost empty. And I like this empty Viennese streets early in the morning. Of course, one of the reasons for seeing Vienna was the film Before Sunrise. Unfortunately, this time I was unable to get to Friedhof der Namenlosen, because the cemetery is quite out of town. However, I managed to see some other locations and I especially liked the Kleines Caf√© coffee shop on Franziskanerplatz and only 5 minutes from my apartment. So I could spend some time at Kleines Caf√© … and very important coffee was good. I had an apartment on the Sonnenfelsgasse street and I could not have a better location.

I saw a lot, ate wiener schnitzel, sacher cake and wiener apfelstrudel, met with friends but I missed something … I did not feel the energy of Vienna. Maybe next time I will…

These first photos are taken with the phone.

Is not everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more? – Before Sunrise quote

From Ljubljana

I really don’t remember when I last posted photos from Ljubljana … stupid me. But nevertheless … I travel to Vienna next Sunday for one week. Somehow I have not yet gotten euphoria because I don’t know what to expect. Everybody asks me how I hadn’t been to Vienna yet … I know, but Vienna is too close to Slovenia, and I’ve always delayed. So my next destination is Vienna!

This time I’m posting some photos from Ljubljana. I’m still photographing in Ljubljana, but less than I used to.
