I like using ordinary elements and by combining them, I can give them various stories, personalities. I hope that the meanings of my pictures are never too limited, are open in some way, each viewer can transform them into a personal aspect.

I’m not so good in talking about myself, I prefer the pictures ’talk’."

Keeping Secrets

I'm not so good now
at keeping things under my
hat. The god damned birds
won't leave me alone.
The other day my hat blew
clean off, multiplied
just weird - a raven
landed on my head. That hurt.
And that other time
I was surrounded.
Now here you are, you looking
at me just like that.

I wear other hats but mostly this one fedora I bought in 1989 or thereabouts. It is of course sweat stained, old and faded by several shades from the dark olive it once was. At the crown, I have stains from handling the hat so many times. Some days I wear it all day long but I don't sleep in it :D

  1. oh nice man...thanks for looking up the others of his works...fascinating stuff really...yeah the ravens might scare me a bit...

  2. Brian, she's a very attractive woman. I'm in love.

  3. Nicely combined with a personal touch. I take my hat off to you.

  4. Hi Christopher,

    :) I love the poem and the images. And to see you with your hat. It is warms my heart to see you with your hat.

    I am also not so good at keeping things under my hat. Maybe that is because I forget to wear mine.

    Much love,


  5. Excellent - love the entire post!

    Anna :o]

  6. Thanks for sharing this other work. Really good stuff.


  7. Lovely tribute to your trusty fedora...

  8. Thanks for all the background info. It really made the pic more special. Love the way you incorporated some of her other work! This was very clever.

  9. When i see a Raven, it is usually a time to be all eyes and ears, something is about to happen, especially when my Fedora of reason disappears!
