This feels like such a slow day for some reason. I got to thinking about the old photos from my visit to Järna this summer, for the exhibition. Funnily, it’s such a great place for pictures (I think, it’s a very nice country-side location), but the light was all wrong. Sharp, blinding, unforgiving. It’s just hopeless, mid-day in july. You need early mornings and evenings, which I didn’t have. Only a few hours in the middle of the day, the worst time. I quite like quirky houses, the nature, the ponds, most things. But it was still wrong. All about the light. Also, my attention was split between the environment and the exhibition. Something was a bit off, at least. Perhaps I can’t say exactly what it was. Maybe the planetary constellations or the diminished activity of elemental beings (they’d fled) — who knows!
So you get the last pictures I have got that are decent. Here and now. (I’ve posted other pics before, search the tag ‘Järna’.)
I’m not sure how they pull off colour combinations like this one. But they do. I suppose it works, though I’m not quite sure. What I am sure of though — the stuff the ceiling is made of is hideous. Not the ceiling itself, i e the shape of it, but the material.
