Dreams… We all dream at night, but not all of us remember what we have dreamt about after we wake up in the morning. I always had very vivid dreams, rarely “good” ones, very often disturbing ones, known as nightmares.
Isn’t it also weird that so many times when we dream, everything is so weird in a dream, like there’re places and people that we recognise from our “real” lives but in a dream they appear in a completely different context or have a totally different role than in reality? Another thing that intrigues me is that I really get to “feel” motions while sleeping. For example, if I’m dreaming that I’m flying or driving off the “cliff”, in that moment I really feel the speed as if it would be all happening for real ( I know this because I usually wake up right away in that kind of intensive moment and realise that my heart is beating like crazy ) or so many times if I’m running away from something or somebody in my dream, my feet feel very tired and heavy and I can barely move… Weird *hit! Do you have any similar experiences with your dreams?
The wall that you can see on these photos reminded me of my dreams and how powerful, colourful and real they can be, yet very surreal and complex. I’m in a way lucky to get these kind of dreams ( bags under my eyes wouldn’t agree 😀 ) because I always get an idea for my next photo shoot or if the idea is not “complete”, I usually take bits and pieces and create a story, build a set, shoot photos and hope that I get to capture the magic well.
When it comes to other kind of dreams, the life goals and wishes kind of dreams, I can now 100% say that LA inspires me so much every single day and that if I have ever had any doubts about the power of dreams and believing in them, I don’t have a single one right now. Every morning when I step out of my apartment and start walking around this amazing city, I can “smell” the magic of endless possibilities and realisations in the air. Can’t wait to someday share my photography in every single corner of this world, because it is what I dream about and will make it happen sooner or later. 🙂
This is just a power booster to all the dreamers and artists out there… Go and do your best, dream, believe and you’ll for sure leave a mark in this crazy, scary but beautiful world!
