Darkness in Your Eyes

Darkness in Your Eyes

Art as a result of mood.

I am currently full of a sense of dread and apathy...

...they say that things like that are likely to affect you and the things you do. 

What happens when depression fills your art? Do other people see it?

They say depression does not show any symptoms, but what about when something comes out of your mind twisted and dark?

Does it show then?

Can this be considered a form of therapy? Letting out our darkest, most terrible thoughts on paper and/or in digital form. Could this be construted as an outlet?

Am I getting better? Is there anybody out there?

Family Visit

We had a very lovely Sunday gathering; with family visiting from White Plains. My brother-in-law invited everybody over to his house for some food and drinks

It was a very hot and humid day and we were all gathered in the backyard enjoying some nice cold beers, burgers and waiting for a delicious slow-cooked chickens that my brother-in-law was preparing on his smoker.

I took the Fujifilm X100F to dust the cogwebs, and I can tell you...

I need to get back on the saddle with my photography, These are obviously snapshots but I think the are mostly mediocre pictures, I guess I was having too much fun and forgot to work on taking the pictures.

Forgot to check my focus points, forgot to check my aperture, heck I forgot to check everything!! 

Too many beers perhaps... ;-)

It was also my first time using the built-in ND filter of the X100F and over all, I think it works fine for situations like this one. Mid-day at full sun.

Boy oh Boy! Where did my photography eye go?

I also was taking these as JPGs and not RAW (they are snapshots after all) so there is minimal editing using Lightroom Classic CC.


Hiatus over...

I have practically disappeared from the Internet...

I left Facebook (this time for good), I have not posted anything to Instagram or Twitter and I have  deleted almost all my email from my inbox.

But there is a reason, you see... we bought a house!

It has been a whirlwind of things happening at the same time and to tell you the truth, it has been really stressful. Sometimes I felt that there was no end in sight.

Finally things are settling a bit. We still have lots of things in boxes that we have to unpack and find new places to put everything, but things are getting back to normal, or the new normal, I should say.

I think I have not taken any pictures since the whole adventure started. It has been really hard to feel motivated and to find the time to do anything else.

I, on the other hand, have been able to create some more digital art in the brief times where I can sit in front of the computer for something other than work.

Recently, I set some of these as the screensaver on my laptop and I will have to say, they look rather nice when they are dancing around on the screen. (Pats back slowly).

Anyways, just a brief note to say that my hiatus is over and that will be back on schedule posting images here on the old trusty blog.

Here is a gallery of the latest digital artworks. Hope you like it...
