When Daydreams Catch Us Unawares


Very often, we might see snippets of our daydreams in art or an unexpected place - even in the most ordinary situation. Although our everyday routines are always following us, we should leave a moment to let something unexpected visit our minds, and then we can really daydream.

  1. Hello Olga:
    We do love the idea which you express here about where snippets of our daydreams may be found - in those unexpected, everyday places. And here with these wonderfully strange and eclectic images, our daydreams abound. As always, a fascinating and beautiful post.

  2. Some very peculiar images there, Olga. My daydreams consist mainly of desert islands and peace. :)

  10. Olga,
    To see the extraordinary in the ordinary is like spice in a daily life. Your photos with shadows look like depicting another world. All shadows are very interesting. I especially love the third one, the head of a doll with strange photos. This is my daydream.

  11. A lovely selection of images dear Olga, I am always pleased when a daydream wakens my conscious thoughts, it's like a peak into another parallel life.
    I was unable to watch the video as it was unavailable in my country.
    Have a lovely day!

  13. A great way to daydream. That first photo is my daydream. Both my parents played the piano beautifully, I have no idea why I never learnt, I would be very happy sat in the street knocking out some great music :) Diane

  14. Оля, вот так со мной было прошлым летом. Гуляли с мужем по городу и нас привлекли звуки сальсы. В самом центре, возле Ратуши, на открытой площадке кафе молодые люди танцевали этот танец, приглашали простых зрителей, обучая нескольким па. Я сама танцевать не умею, хотя в молодости очень мечтала научиться. И вот нечаянно-негаданно эта латиноамериканская экспрессия так заполонила меня, что я как бы растворилась во времени и пространстве. Незабываемое впечатление:))
