Today I saw a bundle of CDs on top of my desk. Then I remembered that those are the CDs where I burned the pictures that we took when we were on vacation in Athens, Rome, and Vienna. I inserted a CD inside my laptop and took a look.
The pictures can bring back memories.
Now that I feel alone (read my last post), sometimes looking at pictures can help. And coincidentally, a postcard from Paris was in my mailbox this morning. My parents wrote it and sent it while they were vacationing there.
Here is a picture I took with my mom's digicam.
Dramatic don't you think? Actually, the room wasn't that dark. We were eating in a restaurant in Rome and the table had a candle on it. I just closed-up on the candle and shot. It created a black background with just the tip of the candle emitting light. How's that for a beginner? I wanted to take crazy pictures with her equipment. Unfortunately, I don't have any equipment here in Buffalo. Maybe in the future, when I have some extra money. I'll try to buy one and show you my environs.
That picture closely reflects a bundle of my emotions recently. It dramatizes the fact that I am alone and without a family here, learning to cope with the new surroundings.
On a lighter note, that is the same environment I find myself in the library, where the light is directly in front of you and the rest of your field of vision is dark so it gives that candlelight effect.
I have to end this here, I'll go out and check a big bookstore here, Barnes-and-Noble. I'll see what they got to offer. And if I like it, I might stalk it for the time being.
