i think my obsession for used books, vintage clothing, old cameras/photographs, and sunrises all stems with my love for the word timeless. the mystery of not knowing exactly when... only that it isn't now.
and making blurry photos fits right in, because when everything is blurred, you can’t really tell when the photo was made, which just adds to to the effect.
i even write with the idea of this journal being timeless – i want someone to read it years into the future, and it still be relevant to them. that, and basically not caring, is why i don’t write about my daily life.
adding to my theme of being timeless, blogger is not not allowing me to change my time zone without automatically re-dating all my old posts, so i’ve decided to just let it remain at texas time. in other words, the time/date won’t be correct for the next few months. one will just have to mentally add seven hours in their head.
another time related thing is the much dreaded jet-lag. what does one do at 5 AM, eyes wide open with nothing to do…? take a walk! with a camera. and aside from the sunrise, there is another huge huge huge advantage to being up with the rest of the city is still sleeping. hint: even though i’m showing you a photo, you can’t get the full experience because you had to be there to smell it.
that’s right. pre-sunrise is when the bread delivery trucks come out.
