Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

MM: The Two Towers



My entry for this weeks Monochrome Madness hosted by Leanne Cole (http://leannecole.com.au/blog)

Two towers of a church in Deventer

Played a bit with an old image. Inspired by many photographers i see on a Dutch photo website, i tried to create a special industrial look. The sky was a bit of a nightmare with all the overexposed spots, so instead i just removed the sky and replaced it by a grey color and added a bit of noise. Very much fun to do cause it’s so different compared to how i would normally edit an image.

Experiencing the nature of silence gives you the possibility to look inside your soul and feel the endless happiness it provides.To understand silence is to understand life itself. To see that noise is silence and… silence is all and nothing at the same time is to say I am and I am not. I deeply respect this mystical thing for it provides the best music I’ve ever heard –> Silence!


One day i was randomly writing when i was spiraling inwards with the text (above quote). Silence in the middle. Not lack of sound, but real silence. And as a person who has tinnitus in his left ear, i know that its good to have another defintion of silence than lack of sound 🙂 So if any of you suffers from tinnitus too, i just want you to know that there is a silence in the midst of all noise which has nothing to do with not hearing.. so don’t let it distract you from meditation as it did for me for so many years 😉
