Sometimes when photographing strangers walking by I like to give them a storyline for the day. This here is Professor Hornsby, he is a crusty old man due to his shortcomings in life ( he always wished to be an actor in Bollywood films). So now he takes out his frustration on his most unfortunate students and is currently on his way to mark exam papers where he will surely be giving them an unfair grade. December 2017.
Peek-a-view! Do you ever wander around a city, catch something outta the corner of your eye, and retreat back? I can't believe I almost missed this little view!
Okay, I think I'm all out of Edinburgh photos now 😭💔
“State of total awareness. In this state one is not only aware of that which one needs to be aware of in order to survive or to satisfy passionate goals, one is aware of oneself and of the world (people and nature) around one. One sees, not opaquely but clearly, the surface together with its roots. The world becomes fully real; every detail and the details in their configuration and structure become a meaningful unit. It feels as if a veil that had been in front of our eyes permanently - without our recognizing it was there - and had suddenly dropped away.” - E. Fromm
