Water Waves

Water Waves
Water Waves 2
I'm wearing:

1. Waffle sweater, from Pull & Bear.
2. Skinny jeans, from Zara.
3. Leather lace-up boots, from Frank Wright.
4. Faux leopard fur snood, from Pull & Bear.
Water Waves 4 There's something very peaceful about water puddles, especially when they're present in a sunny day. For an instant, while doing these shoot, my mind went completely blank. I was calm, just listening to the water crashing against my boots, making waves of peace, waves of sorrow, waves of feelings. 

We were near the entrance of a museum and my friend Grecia made a deal with the janitors and they let her use the "cleaning stairs" (I don't know how to call those platforms where people go up and clean windows so... Give me a break, would you?) and climbed to the top and VOILÁ, the sky was below me. I was floating in a paradise of water and wind (ignoring a horrible heatwave, of course).

I think the results are really beautiful. This place reminded me of a sanctuary I have in memories, and the texture in the water works as a whisper of expansion and the eventual process of fading. Every action has a reaction, it gradually expands and disappears. I like to think that. What's your perspective on waves? Are we on the same page? 

// Hay algo lleno de paz en los charcos de agua, especialmente cuando están presentes en días soleados. Por un instante, mientras tomaba estas fotos, mi mente se puso completamente en blanco. Estaba tranquilo, sólo escuchando el sonido del agua chocando con mis botas, haciendo olas de paz, olas de arrepentimiento, olas de sentimientos.

Estábamos cerca de la entrada de un museo (el MUAC) y mi amiga Grecia hizo un trato con los conserjes para que la dejaran usar las "escaleras de limpieza" (no sé cómo se llamen esas cosas donde la gente se sube a limpiar, así que dénme chance ¿no?) y subió a la cima y VOILÁ, el cielo estaba abajo de mi. Yo flotaba en un paraíso de agua y viento (ignorando la horrible onda de calor, por supuesto).

Creo que los resultados son muy hermosos. Este lugar me recuerda a un santuario que vive en mi memoria, y la textura en el agua funciona como un suspiro de expansión y el proceso eventual de desaparición. Cada acción tiene una reacción, se expande gradualmente y desaparece. Me gusta pensar eso. ¿Cuál es su perspectiva sobre las olas? ¿Estamos en la misma página?
