You will find these kind of people. The ones that make you feel strung along for longer than it feels comfortable. Very possibly, never with bad intentions, we all have our doubts and fears when meeting someone new. But inevitably, at some point, one starts wondering, what is this about? Where do I stand for […]Read more "The road to nowhere (2)"
People are forgotten. Eventually no one remembers you.

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

I always wanted to live in London. Almost since I remember. Life made me delay my decision about moving. After university in Madrid I started working in video games, I got married, we had a daughter. The idea of moving to UK, particularly London, was still there, but somehow it was not a priority. Some day […]Read more "To my imaginary friends (3)"
Just think a bit about what has happened last weeks in London. Now just think in a different way as you may usually do. Let’s just call things with a different name, and ask some (really silly) questions. There are people, who claim being in some kind of special relationship with a very powerful imaginary […]Read more "To my imaginary friends (2)."
I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.
― Richard Feynman
The hypothesis of God, for instance, gives an incomparably absolute opportunity to understand everything and know absolutely nothing. Give man an extremely simplified system of the world and explain every phenomenon away on the basis of that system. An approach like that doesn’t require any knowledge. Just a few memorized formulas plus so-called intuition and so-called common sense.
― Arkady Strugatsky, Roadside Picnic
Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time – when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

I think I’m going to start a black and white period of pictures. I love colour ones, but I feel like black and white is better suited these days. Black and white is less distracting, helping ease composition issues as pictures can become more abstract and schematic. Also perhaps it fits better with my current […]Read more "Long delays (2)…"
Hello again, after a very long time… I guess I should explain a bit my current situation with this blog. And with my photography. And maybe I will even tell something about my life. So, in no particular order… Lots of things have happened/changed lately. Almost two years ago I became separated. Do you remember this […]Read more "Long delays…"
Last day of 2014. Its been a difficult year for me. And for lots of other people. Yesterday I was walking in Cambridge, in a cold but sunny day, thinking about what exactly attached me to this place. Not only me, but some people I know has asked me the same question recently. And to […]Read more "New year’s resolution."
