I have started the year 2015 somehow slowly and in a philosophical mood. I kept away from the computer and social media not because of luck of time, but of choice. I love photography and travel – the mighty internet, the big world wide web, the very varied social media opened up a lot of possibilities of interacting with other photographers and seeing their images. Thrilled by this window to the world, after some time I have noticed that I look, but I don’t see. The over-sharpened images on Flickr, muddy images on Facebook and oversaturated images on 500px and other sites lost their attraction and became yet another click. Places famed for their beauty and places known so far only to few, are mercilessly searched, copied, posted, re-posted and twitted by hundreds of photographers and armies of ordinary people equipped with their mega-mighty cameras and phones. As a result, the appeal of images shared so much is lost in translation on the way to my screen. Also the quieter, more contemplative images drawn in the sea of the images pumped with colour and action. It seems that I have reached the saturation point of seeing images on screen and I crave for slower, old fashioned, printed ones. The place for the good images is on the wall and I hope to visit this year more exhibitions, galleries and museums. Saying that I do realise that like with everything else, the right balance is the key, so I know I will have to spend some time glued to the screen, as new media are here to stay, like it or hate it.
