Flickr Samplr #51: Spring Colours

Vivid colours are usually seen in Spring. They come from green of leaves, blue of the sky, especially colourful flowers... This Flickr Samplr would like to show colourful sights in a fresh atmosphere through "Spring Colours".

Eylül Aslan - 5 things I love about Film

Eylül Aslan is a 24 year-old Turkish freelance photographer, from Istanbul. She shoots mostly portrait on film, especially female models in weird positions with usually a perfect combination of various colours.

Eylül who has joined most of our projects has a lot of reasons to keep her passion on shooting film and here are 5 main things she would like to share with us.

1. The exciting moment of seeing my photos for the first time after they have been developed and printed.

2. The surprise effect. The process takes a long time (at least longer than looking at your digital photos) and I never know what kind of surprise (often a good one) is waiting for me at the end.

3. The fact that I always wait for the photo to be perfect. Unless it is the perfect shot at the moment of taking the photo, I do not push the button.

4. Simply the way it looks.

5. And I love loving film.

Analogue Photography in Words #2: Loneliness

Loneliness is not a thing of fate, it is a thing of our decision...     
Marta Hugued Cuadrado, Madrid, Spain
She stood there... alone with her thoughts.
She stood there... and waited. Waited for the brightness to appear. Some weird weight has crept into her head.
She knew what was happening but she couldn't accept the truth. Maybe her mind could understand, but her heart didn't want.
She kept saying, deeply in herself, why me, oh dear God, why me...
Being alone without anybody to care or someone who will care for me.

How many times you felt lonely? Surrounded by people, but still lonely? 

Loneliness is painful, but we have to make our own hope, our own love. Don't wait for it to happen. Every morning when you wake up you can choose pain, happiness, joy... Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain of loneliness. There is a thin line that separates loneliness and happiness, just try to control that line. We are all born equal, what we become in meanwhile is a reflection of our experience and our will. 
Today you have to say that : I want to be happy, I want to laugh, I want to love all people, I want to do the little things that will make my life complete.
Today I choose to be happy. Even if you see some unfortunate and loneliness people try to find the way to their souls. Take a peek at them, virtuously them, because if  people don't want to tell you with a word, a soul will surely tell. And if we manage to overcome the pain and loneliness of others, we are one step away from our own. Helping others to cope with their sorrow, most we'll help ourselves.
I wish all of you have a person who means to you as much as you mean to her, and being able to share the joyful and sad moments. Life is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it can be unpleasant and it is important that you have someone to share.
"Let my soul smile trough my heart and my heart smile trough my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts." - Paramahansa Yogananda
