Have you felt kinda lost while watching Cloud Atlas, or have you felt confused reading the book? No worries! I’m here for ya! This is the first part of my Cloud Atlas analysis. There are no major spoilers for now, so you can watch it… and then watch the movie if you haven’t already. And then come back for another episode of Cloud Atlas Deconstructed. And then repeat.
This is one of my favorite quotes about creativity, and this little video representation makes it even better!
Taking a photo is bringing a fracture of an event into history. Photos now live longer due to new internet lifestyle. They won’t disintegrate, paper won’t get affected by time, colours won’t vanish. The internet keeps them alive for a long time, even though they might get lost in the ocean of bits and bytes.
Every photo is just a slice of the story; something had to happen before it was taken and the story has to continue somehow. And that’s exactly why this blog came to existence.
Reuters published their Best photos of the year 2013 and they bring up so many emotions it’s almost impossible not to see a story behind every single one of them. My goal is to write a flash fiction stories to some of them. Probably not all of them and probably not just to those of the Reuters’ list.
So from the January 1, 2014 on, you’ll find here a short story every now and then. I highly encourage collaboration, so if there are writers out there that would be interested, let me know. :)
Ha! Dawkins looks like a kid who just snuck a cookie before dinner.
