Yes, yes yes!
Finally. 10 whole days in.
1/3 of a month is officially complete.
Well now that I've reached this 10 day mark I should probably have a post with a little more content etc. but you know, at this exact moment in time I just haven't been able to put enough time away to create just that.. Hmm it's ok though because in about 10 minutes I leave for a basketball game and will most likely have to leave this here waiting to be completed while I play the game.
Due to a minor mind blank and severe lack of what to write about in this exact moment it's 6:01PM, I'm listening to Stallin' by Airling, half looking out through my window and trying to figure out if there is any possible way to make ugly steel frames any prettier. I seem to continuously fall back on to the demolish it and start again fixer of all things but apart from that my mind is a dry desert and completely idea-less. Hmm I think the only way to save this present situation will be to internet-rank for a while.. But until approximately 7:45ish that rank is going to have to wait. Off to basketball and when I return I have a feeling a little rant could be bursting out of my fingers.
Ahh yes the post and writing from earlier this arvo didn't delete itself. Phew. Anyhoo back from the good old Tuesday night basketball game and back at this blog. I'm equipped with icy-pole and let's just say that I'm VERY sidetracked by the Woodford Folk Festival 2015 Programme. I NEED to go to another music festival ASAP. Like I am in desperate need and I've been completely caught by some sort of strange but seriously great disease that has made me addicted to festivals, the people there, music and the mosh pit. I swear all good things happen at festivals. EVERYTHING GOOD.
Hmm I'm thinking that since basketball the rant that I felt coming on pre-game has gone. Just completely left me. This ain't no good, to be honest I was looking forward to a most likely meaningless blab about not a whole lot that I can one day read back and just be like what triggered that on that day? Well anyway at this rate I'll just continue on with this blab that is SO random I don't think it can even be anything more than blab, and then just see where I end up.
Oh ok I do believe that I have just thought of something. Perhaps. Maybe.
I hope so.
Ok so here we go. Black and white photography. Yes this is completely and totally random and literally only on topic thanks to the mini collection of 4 photos that I have for you tonight, but, why, why, why? I personally seem to find black and white imagery so incredibly pleasing and when that perfect amount of contrast is applied, well WOW I feel like it is literally photographic perfection. Within some moments it's almost as if the image commands you in, draws you closer, forces you to look just a little longer. These kind of photos are just, well, ahhhh so, so good. Anyhoo because black and white photos are just so nice and generally when that black and white filter is popped on you just want to make every photo black and white. I mean colour is GREAT and I feel like when colour works it is just as good as those beautiful black and white images. I feel like there is something about the simple dual tones of black and white photos that is just so appealing and I have a tiny theory. Maybe the black and white appeal is in fact a simplicity craving, a need for structure. I don't know, nothing more than a thought. I don't if you catch my drift but I feel like maybe, just maybe within so many aspects of our lives we may find ourselves wishing for something a little simpler, literally wishing for a black and white situation.
OK, so I do believe that the idea of a black and white situation has brought me to my next point. To the next blab and chit-chat section of this post.
Just take a quick second and picture the world as black and white. Next, take 2 seconds and think about what the world would be like if everyone, everywhere in the world, every age, each gender, each person with their varying opportunities were happy. Happy ALL the time.
Here's the catch. Would we have the capacity to feel sadness, misunderstanding, pain, jealously ? I don't know. I mean I really don't know but I am often fascinated and seriously confused over what if everyone was happy and all situations were like black and white photos, multi-dimensional in appearance yet completely 2D and almost hollow. What if people were like that? 3D in appearance yet blank, flat and misunderstood as you got closer. Ahhh now that gets me thinking. Are people actually like that? Do we appear 3D and underneath it all we've become hollow and emotionally burdened over nothing? Maybe we're the top of the food chain yet perhaps we have no reason and meaning... Are we really pointless, just a collection of atoms upon the map of the galaxies? You know how we're constantly hearing all about how we are pointless and nothing really? Do you know all those bazillion quotes about how insignificant and meaningless one person and their issues are when someone looks at the stars, at the sky, at the sand, when someone just generally takes 3 seconds to inhale the world on which we live. When we take the time to inhale nature, soak ourselves amidst the little things, appreciate the world I feel like that doesn't make us insignificant and unimportant but perhaps we just become overwhelmed by what the world can be, could be and is when we breathe. With each inhale, each intake of oxygen our perspective may change. As we breathe out carbon-dioxide we are actually contributing to the world through that one little, tiny simple act of breathing. Each person, each being, small, tall, every life form really is not insignificant. Our feelings, our thoughts, our hopes, our dreams, the oxygen we inhale the carbon dioxide we release, all of this adds up and all of this contributes to the world. It just depends how you look at it, how you choose percieve it. We are nothing and we are everything. Take your pick.
Ahh I do believe my rant is finished. However in all honestly I cannot be bothered to boggle myself again with my confusing words by reading and checking for errors, spelling things etc. If you find anything let me know and if you did indeed make it this far, well thank you and hopefully it was worth it.
Ok so November 10th is now officially concluded.
Before my fingers and brain coordinate themselves into something new and confusing I'm going to head off.
See ya later alligators,
