The piercing light

One year ago, I was slowly coming to terms with the new reality (e.g. listening to the trolleybus announcement 'when leaving your home, you put your lives in danger' every day). Trying to hold on my work – I was still finishing things that had to be done physically. I was getting very lonely and feeling somewhat ashamed and lost, even if superficially calm. It was very important to feel needed, even if for my project. Yet it was the first year I saw this post-equinox beauty right here at work so sharply, and took the photos in the empty corridor facing the East and the West.

This time of the year last year.

Sunny winter of my native places

The area of the city I consider 'my own' (I've always lived in it) as seen from the opposite points of view situated on the same street. The photos are not mine. They were taken while we still had this brilliant crisp winter in February (now we have beautiful entrance into early spring).

Playing around

Camera: Smena-2; film: Kodak Gold, expiration date 2014; used in 2019–2020, developed in autumn 2020. The shop had no idea where the borders among individual photos were :)

I had an unused film and put it into the camera just to play, meditate and get the feeling of manual settings back. (There is totally no feedback with this camera until you print the photos). I had no mood for most of the non-grocery shopping or services since spring. However there were exceptions. The cinema (and Lithuanian black-and-white movie), as I felt I ought to be supporting it, if anything at all. The hairdresser (she let her mask slip off while I was seeing nothing). And the photo-shop, as getting the photos printed out as in the older times was a thing I was waiting for months.
