ALL THINGS ARE DIFFICULT BEFORE THEY ARE EASY

Look around and stop for a second, the most wisdom things are right in front of your nose…

Though we are too involved in many unimportant chores that forgot to be able to recognize the most obvious…

Somewhere, something I am thinking of…

New projects, new images, new ideas until I can, until I enjoy…

Until my territory is unrestricted…

I would like to make all things simplier!

Love you all,

Yours Film Director 

Sunday Photo Quiz

My cute Friends, the best way to relax at Sunday evening is to look at these photos and answer me “what does you see?”:

my-goal-0611

“Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.” (Milan Kundera)

bench-1-of-1

“You cannot score a goal when you are sitting on the bench. To do so, you have to dress up and enter the game.” (Israelmore Ayivor)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love you all,

Homie

Friends, friends, friends! We haven’t seen each other for one week. How are you doing? Did you have a busy week? Mine was a bit busy. How lovely it is to stay at home for weekend and do just what you like. Edit your film, publish your photos and read your comments. This makes me feel good as if there is no distance and i just look at you while sipping a hot cup of tea with a delicisous sandwich…It is still winter in Kyiv and there, at you? Aren’t you drinking tea ☕ now? How do you like spending your weekend? What is your favorite relaxing exercise? I would love to hear…and feel a bit closer to you 😊…

 Hello to you, my Friends! I am happy to see you silently browsing my blog pages. Hope you have some fun. This week our Mother Nature was especially generous for lovely surprises. She met dear Madam Weather and they agreed to have a painting masterclass. Look, what they’ve made:     Frozen Branch

We are very visual creatures.  Our love of images lies with our cognition and ability to pay attention. Images are able to grab our attention easily, we are immediately drawn to them. These are facts know to that two ladies whose pictures are just…help me with a proper adjective please? Comment, comment, comment…

dscn0725_li
Frozen Field

Don’t be greedy for compliments. These two artists were extremely successful today. Colors, shades, shapes are chosen so elegantly right. My eyes are beaming with pleasure, and yours? Not…hm…then one more image…

dscn0768_li

How odd is that the most beautiful things are most simple ones. They just wondered through that thick trees and enjoyed what they saw. Together with their simple equipment they managed to capture this innocent beauty and show to you. They felt themselves artists who can transform that live images into a picture that can hang on somebody’s wall or be presented as a greeting card. Do not know whether they were enough skillful, but their results are given here and available for download. In case some of you particularly like one of the image (or all of them) and would like to have then in original size or designed for special occasion as a greeting card, you may contact me via comment folder and I’ll provide you with all the required details ( I am their delegated agent). Everything is possible, art has no restrictions and borders. we can always spread it to be able to evaluate and treasure. A nice picture can always cheer you up in any season or weather, right, my Friends?

Have a sweet weekend! Enjoy the simplest!

2017 A Life Started Anew

Every new year starts with a new calendar, this forthcoming 2017 is not an exception to the rule. There was an option to make up a calendar of my photos at redbubble and I could not resist the temptation  to take this opportunity.  I made a careful selection of all the uploaded images and choose one particular for every month. By clicking the following link you will be able to page through every month and image selected: https://www.redbubble.com/people/anrostudio/calendars/24305501-2017-a-life-started-anew?p=calendar&ref=artist_shop_grid

calendar

The front page only is available here. All other pages are visible via link above (there will be   buttons to press). Calendar Size is  11.7″ x 16.5″(Printed to fit A3). Tough wire binding and hanger, stunningly sharp digital printing, start the year with the month of your choice, 200gsm satin art paper with a tougher cover.

It does mean a lot to me. It looks like my final photo report on my photography venture. I opened my page at redbubble this year. It was not a simple decision, I knew that market is competitive (i still feel it) and I might not be successful. I am not able to boast about my success, however, I think I can be proud of giving it a try and involving myself into adventurous world of photohunting. I’ve grabbed a lot and so much unknown await for me yet. I plunged into the magical world of still image and dared to experiment. I did many mistakes and will do, but “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
― Neil Gaiman together with Ann

My calendar is among unique Christmas gifts that can be purchased for 24.59$ and still can be delivered before Christmas with expedited shipping. Choice is yours!

Love you all,

“Autumn…the Year’s Last, Loveliest Smile”

autumn-episodes

An absolutely brilliant quote is said by William Cullen Bryant. I respect wit and ability to notice the unusual sheltered in the usual. Autumn is the season that is not fully appraised. I would like to steal your free minute and look at this loveliest smile through the images I have recently captured. If you let me today my endless thoughts will be sealed with silence and each of you will have time to enjoy and compose your own thoughts that I hope to read in my comment’s table. Thank You!

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”  Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebooks

autumn-2016

“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!” Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

too-cute-to-spook

And Lady Jane Austen just read my mind:  “Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn–that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness–that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”

What are your lines of feeling? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Happy forthcoming Halloween!

October’s Riot

branchands

“October proved a riot a riot to the senses and climaxed those giddy last weeks before Halloween.”
― Keith Donohue

Hello, hello, my dear little Friends! It has been a week since I talked to you last time. So, how are you doing? I felt that there is something in October air or atmosphere in general that put me on riot. Perhaps this gloomy rainy weather. Or shorter daylight. Usually I try to find a good explanation to everything that works wrong. It seems not this time. Longer nights help me think more and realize too much. I refuse to accept more materlialistic things. I would like to beleve so much in real friendship. I still hope that good wins over evil. Yet world shows me the opposite.

life-in-between

My nice buddy, Mr Brain, reminds me to guard my senses and do not stay somewhere in between, but come back to usually accepted rules of human existance. They were not established by us, thus we have to obey them. Huh. The last chance to protest is to be creative and try to decorate this world with something made with love. This is exactly how I came across to opening doors to a new shop at :https://society6.com/anrostudio

Below and up you can find two original designs made by me. A slim fit T-shirt (available for men as well) and duvet, which are today can be purchased with 15% +free shipping discount (till midnight), are presented in my shop. Surely many other useful and interesting products can be find. There is a big choice and many discounts almost every day.

duvet

Moreover, today in my redbubble shop there is a BIG SALE DAY, 20% OFF EVERYTHING. Get ready for a sitewide sale on October 17. Use unique code twentyoff-Anrostudio that I share only with you, my Friends!!! Do not hesitate and visit my shop, where you can find not only various products, but also useful information on each photo. It is such fun! http://www.redbubble.com/people/anrostudio?asc=u
