A Romantic Journey Notebook of A TravellerI am merely someone who likes

to see and what catches my eyes i try to record without
judgment or preconceived ideas: without the burden of
experience or the weight of emotions. even without memories.
i try instead, to see things as if for the first time. Freed from any associative reference whether emotional, intellectual or just plain habitual, i find there is no such thing as an ordinary thing. what, after all, is ordinariness except a value that our tired mind projects on our surrounding?

The camera is a good helper in this exercise.

The camera suspends all judgment. The camera never tires nor does it get bored. Looking through the camera my eyes are no longer limited to the scope of my gaze (often superficial, most of the time uninterested, almost always wandering). instead the intensity of the lens’ focus enables the act of seeing to penetrate into a world filled with wonder and mysticism; a world beyond the mediocrity and superficiality of our existence where even the humblest object contains the wisdom of the universe.

pricein seeing without preconceiving, the camera takes me on an
endless journey of discovery in which seeing becomes a mystical
experience.
