I wasn't thinking for a long time about the first photos to publish here. In fact I wasn't thinking at all, the choice was obvious - about a month ago I took some pictures I'm very proud of. I'm talking about a photo session with my dear friend and beautiful fashion blogger Sylwia 'Vamppiv' Błach (vamppiv.blogspot.com).
Since she's known for her alternative, dark, mostly gothic style, the photos of her surrounded by bright, yellow flowers of rapeseed were something new for her followers. Still, she's wearing black clothes and crosses and the contrast of her dark majesty and sunny field was a real eye-candy for a photographer ("which is me by the way, hello"*).
The flowers themselves looked that day like always - delicate petals, green stalks, in fact much more tangled than I thought, which made it difficult to 'sink' in the rapeseed sea. We felt more like in a jungle we have to fight with, and we only managed to go two or three meters inside the field. Also, the flowers obviously didn't like us and made our pretty, gothic clothes stained yellow. As a matter of fact, the rapeseed field is marvelous when you see it behind the windows of your car, passing by, but loses some of its magic, when you get too close.
But we will pretend nothing of that took place. In my pictures the field is like we imagine it, when we watch from the distance. A wide and long sea of sunlight, caught in small flowers, waiting for us to take a dive. Friendly and gentle, a place to hide inside, like in a garden of our own thoughts and dreams, that circle around our head like ethereal, yellow clouds. And nature we see everywhere we look, is so happy, so full of positive energy, that even a vampire is no longer afraid of sunlight.
Okay, enough talking, let's take a look at always beautiful Vamppiv and much-more-beautiful-in-the-pictures flowers of rapeseed.
(You can also vote for them, just sayin' ^^)
So, the welcoming post is behind me, the future of this blog and my photography passion - ahead.
