It is fun to sneak in to ruins and see the mix of the result of destruction and many things left behind by current dwellers. I had a photo session at one of ruins with other photographers today and it was slightly decadent and productive moment. It is curious and I do not know why I have seen many Russian books there.

Mylene for logy morning

I am like a gloomy lizard in bed in the morning, remembering the dreams of the last night and wishing return to them. It is lucky if songs of Mylene Farmer on cable TV gets me up.
Thinking of go to bed with Mylene, I guess she would like laugh and take her clothes off in the immediate stasis and I make her captured in deep black and white portraits.
朝はベッドの中で陰鬱な蜥蜴、昨夜の夢を思い出しながらそこに戻りたいと思う。ケーブルTVから流れるMylene Farmerの歌が起こしてくれれば言うことはない。

Around 11pm

I was looking at the sky at sundown through bus window. It was still bright on the edge of the sky in Lithuania around 11pm. The fuzzy gradation in rosy glow of sundown and nightblack, and I was fascinated with a part of the sky of the water blue colour. I have been captivated by it and that is absolute.
