Kharkiv is saturated with mist…
This picture is NY, 24 September, 2010. I had a flight back home that afternoon. I was walking all previous day through Manhattan, city was exited, shiny, moving…
But I know, I remembered NY how it looked the next morning, before my departure. It was peaceful, mist covered skyscrapers, there was now way I was going on the top of Empire State Building, I would see nothing. But this is how the building looked… I would never wish for better. You don’t see, where the building ends, it disappears in the fog, in the unknown, in the uncertainty. But still, it felt safe, like something using this white-grey mist was connecting every separate being.
I read somewhere that “Essentially, fog is a cloud that occurs at ground level instead of in the sky”… We can’t reach clouds, so when they feel bored, they go downstairs and hang out with us.
Go if you’ve got to go
leave me here if you’ve got to know
but don’t think me a fool
no I’m not worried, no I’m not worried at all
Be said if you’re feeling sad
but don’t play sad if you’re feeling glad
I know you all too well
no I’m not worried, no I’m not worried so tell
Sometimes I will find I’ve got to be
a million miles away before I’ll see…
I don’t know why but you’ve gotta be
I don’t know why but you’ve gotta be for me
Hide if you’ve got to hide
I’ll only be one step behind
I’ve lost you once before
and I don’t want to lose you, I don’t want to lose you no more
Run if you’ve got to run
the chase has always been the most fun
but this time don’t make a meal
because I don’t want to lose you, I don’t want to lose you
“Hide and Seek”, Mirrors
Like every relationship.
First picture, we see them in a distance, blurred, we don’t know anything about them, like people don’t know anything about each other at the beginning of their road together.
Second one. There are common interests and goals that move them towards each other, make them closer.
Next one. Feelings. I see how they do like each other on the third picture. Smiling, having a good time together, attraction, covered passion…holding glasses like holding each other hearts.
And forth picture. “Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
As I would add, looking in the common future together.
This one is also from Lviv January 2013.
I have series of photos from this moment and couldn’t pick just one, so I decided to post them one at a time, as I do have a rule here )
We were having breakfast, the best “winter vacation” breakfast you can have. Two cakes and coffee in the “Coffee Manufacture” place, they call it like that, really
