A dream in the distance
Do you also know this special feeling when you have a camera in your hands? The feeling to have to make a photo of something and it doesn’t matter what? When I have such feelings I’m like a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it ;-) And so it was on this day in winter when I suddenly stopped to look at the mountains in the distance. After some time without a camera in my hands I only wanted to photograph something, no matter what the outcome would be!
I was on a walk with our dog Giorgio and I saw three hikers climbing a mountain. You can see three little dots in the left half of the image. These are the three hikers. The scene looked so beautiful and it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world like this incredible view. The scene looked like a distant dream. And whenever I try to remember such dreams, I always convert them into stories. But dreams are like life. You can’t catch it with your hands because you can’t catch something you don’t really see. But this scene was there and I saw it before my eyes.
I didn’t put the scene in front of a mirror and asked me if this would be a good picture. For me it was nice and this feeling did not care whether I was here since hours or only just arrived, if the weather was fine or not. The only thing my feelings wanted was that my heart was free. And I had the courage to follow it!
