Anomalous style

The angles were limited and absolute. Artistic aproach was not required. Interior photo work should appeal designer’s point of view and concepts. It is just the opposite of my style but I also like such photography.

I had a 1 day exhibition in Užupis yesterday and I appreciate visitors to see my photos. I would like to thank to Mr. Inoue and E.R. for their great help. I am glad I did not attack performers there who put on their costumes on my photo on the wall and had terrible performance with Japonism approach. Well they were also the part of the event but I do not have any relationship with them. I would have killed them if they damaged my photos while they were showing horrible performance.
And now, my mind is flying to next exhibition plan in September…

Carrying, so what?

It is interesting to see jumble sale in a big market in Vilnius. I bought a pirate copy CD of “Beatmania” (a Japanese video game) at 1 Litas from a junk seller. He had a kitten in his backpack and it was not for sale like other kittens available there.
I explored in the night in Kaunas and I found a strange old woman. She was carting a big stone. It was too and tumbled off from her small cart so often.
People are carrying something for some reason and sometimes it is not better to know why.
