Have you ever encountered something new, and every time you think back on it, you still enjoy that moment? Perhaps it was the meeting of an extraordinary person, or visiting a special place for the first time. Or maybe it was a thought provoking movie, or as in our case, discovering an inspiring book.
This book in question, titled Cyprus Remembered, is one of Theo's first encounters of the island of Cyprus. It is a visual chronicle featuring the inspirational work of Reno Wideson, a renowned Cypriot photographer who captured the beauty of Cyprus and its people.
Walking the streets, who can resist the opportunity of peeking through a lit window into an intimate scene. Especially at night time, hiding in the shadows, feeling safe and anonymous, you can look in freely and uninhibited.
Perhaps it is simply a matter of curiosity, or looking to get information, which captures our attention. Theo caught this voyeuristic moment beautifully in his painting titled, The Barber Shop At Night. It features a professional at work, sharpening his knife only inches away from his victim... oops client.
Sitting in the sun in the company of friends idling time away, the locals' view to the sea has the added attraction of a pretty woman walking by.
'Pretty woman, yeah, yeah, yeah....'
''I have learnt so much from my mistakes....
I am thinking of making a few more.''
Not a metaphor, but perhaps a worthy maxim to take on board.
