i went to this huge festival in Kawagoe over a month ago. never got to show you the pictures i took there. it was first time for me to ever go to such a traditional japanese festival. it was quite an experience.
the photos are in chronological order, i'll leave them uncommented for the time being.
living on the edge of this huge metropolis, commuting has become a very central aspect of my daily life. it feels like half of my day is consumed by sitting standing in the train. in this small place, people are forced to share a part of their life's time with strangers. there's no escape, so to speak. i find this kind of confrontation very interesting, and my mind starts to fabricate hundreds of stories around the fate of those people.
a friend of mine here in Tokyo asked me to take some pictures of him for his modeling & dancing portfolio. he's an ambitious dancer and such an incredibly nice guy, so i am more than happy to support him in this way.
and of course, it's a great experience for me, too ;)
i hope i'm sure some of the photos i took over the last 'meetings' turned out nice enough to publish here, so please be looking forward to seeing some of them on this blog soon!
this is what happens to stupid people who wake up with a hangover and try to do their harmless morning routine with plenty of distracting thoughts wandering in their heads.
i spontaneously stayed over in my friend's flat, so i decided to use the stuff there to rinse my contactlenses. in the morning, i put one of them in my eye
turns out the fluid i've been using was some kind of non neutralised preservative agent for contactlenses acid. turns out this acid just doesn't feel good in my eyes. turns out it actually says 'CAUTION' on the package of the fluid.
maybe i started to moan out loud as soon as the lens got in place, either way, i scared the hell out of my friend. it hurt so bad, i couldn't open my eyes and my tears wouldn't stop flowing. it was awful.
the torture was over after a minute when i grabbed the lens with like four fingers and started washing my eye.
that was three days ago, and it's still red now... :3
welcome to my blog! it's the first time i'm doing this kind of thing, so i'm kindof excited... :)
for those who don't know me yet, i wrote something like an introduction on this page, but it's not very informative. the best way to get to know me is to follow this blog, i promise.
as some of you know, i'm leaving for a 5-month stay in Japan very soon. this seems to be a great moment to start blogging. i always wanted to do this. publishing my very own photos along with my thoughts and experiences in text form. how cool is that?
i call this my photo_graphic diary because, well, it is.
i want to post photos and other visual media here that i don't show on my deviantArt-account. and i want to post texts here that simply don't fit into a tweet or two.
so, please be looking forward to the updates! thanks for reading, and see you soon :)
