Inspiring: František Drtikol [ Photography ]March 17, 2015
However, the same evening of the hospital visit, Ben's fever was rising again and he was shivering like a leaf; I made some ginger, honey and lemon tea (which helps against the shivering; really ... try it) and decided I would stay awake and take care of him. Tough, because I was very tired, but you do what you think is necessary to make it as comfortable as possible for a sick loved one. I caught up on some sleep the following day.
Fortunately enough I had a free day today and I wanted to catch up on some relaxation: I decided to stay in the house as much as possible, wander around barefoot, unkempt morning curls, a satin underdress and a satin kimono, but eventually, around lunch time, I decided to go out to have a lunch and ordered a delicious French panini and a French coffee at a cute bistro near our home. Pure bliss, I tell you!
Despite the hectic days, my bohémianesque creativity and imagination were flaring up and needed to be fed. I found some vision-pleasing, characteristical work of Czech photographer František Drtikol. František actually wanted to become a painter, but his father chose photography as a direction for him. I think that, in his photography work, you can well see that he has actually a love for painting and this creates a highly unique way of photography; he had is own unique style. Yet, he later gave up photography to eventually concentrate on painting, though in his final stage of photographic work, he created compositions of small, elongated carved figurines which symbolically expressed various themes from Buddhism.
I wanted to share with you a couple of my favorite photos of his inspiring work. Let's have a look!
