Desolation X

IT’S BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE I LAST WROTE here but I am going to change that soon and start being more frequent here again so I am not gone for good. In the meantime I wanted to shoe some images of a place me an my brother found when we were out driving saturday morning the weekend we were at Gefle Metal Festival and we had nothing to do but to take a look at the surrounding nature. When I saw this desolated house where no one lives in and where the grass stans high all over I immidiately thought of my Desolation X project; it’s perfect for this.

Not much to say really. I don’t even remember what that little hole we lived in was called but obviously near outside Gävle. So go ahead and enjoy these photos. They are run through heavy filtering using Snapseed as you all probably can see.

See ya’ll soon. Enjoy the sombre colors of the beautiful autumn that lays upon us now. Sweden is a wondrous place this time of year I think.


Killing my baby-mate…

Today I will go to the vet with my little companion. She is 17 years and 3 months old and she has cancer. During the past few months, she has lost both hearing and sight. Her sight was almost lost over night! But she has been strong and fought her battle against death and seemed pretty alert, walking around the apartment trying to find her way to whatever place she was looking for, but the last two nights she has hidden herself under my couch, and she doesn’t come out for food or water – she has always been a big drinker that could drink enormous amounts of cold water.


This dying world… is my home by force (A word on isolation)

NEVER IN MY LIFETIME WILL THERE BE any other place to go. This world is supposed to be a place where there is room for all of us but sometimes I feel as if there is not enough room for me alone. The mind during these periods is darkened by shadowed thoughts. Single words may then linger in my consciousness and repeat itself until I normally would be on the verge of insanity but I have been there so many times that I honestly miss that state of mind when I am not in it anymore.  How can that be so? Because once in there I feel undoubtedly secure and very isolated from the other souls around me. I do not see them. I do not feel their presence if they are around me.


Desolation X [Vistor Marie]

Hello. Long time, no see. Will get to the post writing once I have posted theses photos of desolation from Marie Zackariasson again :)

This time I give you a pair of photos. She describes them as follows:

I got another photo from Marie Zackariasson which had a really nice touch to it. She says it was shot during a walk on a path called Roslagsleden, Täby (Northern Stockholm) in 2015 and it depicts an old military bunker, and it made her think of all wars that were fought in the past and the fact that it is still going on today in our modern world and has simply never really stopped since way back in time.


Draconian Winter Mysticism

A Winter Night…

IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I POSTED here. More than 10 days, I believe. Although I have posted some of my own, and a bunch of Visitors’, Desolation X-photos, I haven’t written a real post for some time. But what to write, what to write? I will write about some real personal stuff today. I will share an experience with you guys from a special winter midnight and what you believe are your thoughts and what I believe is mine but to be honest – I have no clue whatsoever of what this was about or what really happened even though I do understand what was being done that winter night. Please, lay your opinions aside and try not to be clouded by prejudice, I beg you – for your own experience’ sake.

YET AGAIN, MARIE ZACKARIASSON PROVIDES US with another shot of desolation and it is another one from Tobago, too. This one is a nice one. It’s a car getting eaten by mother nature. What was earth will be earth! Captured with a digital system camera Marie catches a moment in time. I love those kinds of pictures of cars breaking down by nature. Not even steel can stand against her! The photo was taken back in 2009.

Here’s Marie’s description of her photo:

Mother nature takes back what is hers by right
Picture #2 from Tobago, 2009. A car that certainly has done its time on Earth!

WE HAVE ANOTHER PHOTO FROM Marie Zackariasson. This time it is a color photo all the way from Tobago with cheery colors but still desolated so it fits the genre well. It is taken back in 2009 with her Digital System Camera.

Marie Zackariasson’s Contribution to Desolation X

this time I thank Marie Zackariasson for sending her photo of the northern hemisphere from Alta, Norway, in November 2016, while she was awaiting the northern lights to show up. It is shot with her Digital System Camera. Did it, Marie? It looks like one of those nights. Though I have never seen one myself :( This photo brings a strong feeling of desolation and a feeling of how small we are in this universe. Night skies are always fascinating and this is no exception.


Necrophilia Or Just Love? (Part II)

Necrophilia (Pt. 2)

AS SOME OF YOU MIGHT RECALL I WROTE A POST on Necrophilia vs. love on June 5th, 2017 and I promised to continue on the subject and tonight is the time for that. 

What is necrophilia? To give an answer to this complex question in all its simplicity would be to say that necrophilia is the desire to, in some way, interact sexually and/or emotionally with a corpse. Sick, you say? Also definable. A pedophilia is an ugly orientation with no kind of exculpation (a defense of some offensive behavior) whatsoever and I think – no, I hope – that we all could agree on that part but if we can’t you are not getting any sympathy from me, though.
