Abandoned Autumn

That’s the second post here with my own pictures, the first one, Northern Sights, was about picturesque Iceland last December. In October, I went to Poland and explored a bit with Maciej who took the urbex pictures for my previous post, This Corrosion. There is something about the places we visited that work well in…

This Corrosion

This October, I was in Poland for some conferences including 4Developers in Kraków. There, I had the pleasure to catch up with friends old and new. Maciej Żywioł, who photographed me in Canary Wharf for some previous articles (The Muse of Dreams,  Chaos Theory and Metamorphosis), photographed me again but this time in his amazing…

Bluetalism

Brutalist maze under a blue haze I promised more pictures from the Barbican photoshoot with capturingemotions.co.uk  in the previous article, Outpost, and here they are! A concrete opening for a cobalt opera Brutalism is an architectural style that started in the 1950s. Often massive, with concrete blocks prone to urban decay and fortress-like features, brutalist…

The Wish Shop

Let’s go a little curio, just in time for Halloween! If you have read the previous articles, Karou’s wishbone and Chimaera’s Hamsas, you will have learnt about Karou, Laini Taylor’s character from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Karou happens to have the Chimaera Brimstone for a father figure. This is the last set of pictures…

Chimaera’s Hamsas

This outfit is heavily inspired by Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, like my previous article, Karou’s wishbone. This is part 2 of the Waterloo photoshoot with Marco Vinagre. Remember when I wrote that she had other powers than using wishes? Karou has eyes on her palms, but they aren’t tattoos though,…

Karou’s Wishbone

I’ve been dreaming quite a while of doing a photo session inspired by Karou, the main character of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and my dream has come true thanks to Marco Vinagre. Thanks to Kat Von D’s Satellite Blue eyebrow pomade, my eyebrows and my hair (Manic Panic’s Bad Boy Blue) finally match, making…

Metamorphosis

The previous articles focused quite a lot on some concepts like Dreams and Chaos, loosely connected to insects like moths and butterflies. This one will be all about metamorphosis… Are you ready for the transformation? The other winged insect I was wearing in the Canary Wharf photo session with Maciej is the dragonfly. This skirt…

Chaos Theory

You might have heard of the butterfly effect, maybe from the movie, which I must admit here I didn’t like that much. It’s an aspect of chaos theory, that takes the metaphorical example of how a tornado might have been influenced much earlier by a butterfly flapping its wings somewhere else. It shows that from slightly…

The Muse of Dreams

Recently, my friend Maciej Żywioł came to London and we decided quite spontaneously to go take pictures in Canary Wharf. All pictures in this article have been taken by Maciej. I know the setting below is quite reminiscent of Hamlet’s character Ophelia, my “nicknamesake” if I might say so. However, Ophelia is asleep here, she’s dreaming next…

Dragons of London

We (Olaf from capturingemotions and me) started this photo session at the same location than the “Those Red Lips”, a London ruined Church Garden. If you have read the previous article, you know I wrote a lot about Dracula. Well, Dracula comes from the word Dracul, which means Dragon. You might know the Hogwarts motto…
