Thirteen was Maya's beloved number, it was believed to be happy, it was connected with positive changes. The next equally beautiful opportunity to change something will be correspondingly every 100 and 1000 years later. We are also there.
Some people believe that past and future don't exist, that only present is real. But it is almost impossible for a person of my profession to believe that the future isn't predefined, it is predefined and also shaped by our actions. The past can't exist if it is improbable. The future can't be achieved if it is unbelievable. And the past is also unfinished otherwise it won't require to be saved so emphatically. How (and why) otherwise the past and the present can be analyzed, if the future couldn't be predicted, how otherwise it can be predicted influenced and formed with acceptable probability of success? So there is the past, the present and the future. There are many roads and many landmarks. But these three aspects of reality exist simultaneously.
So in these two months I was engrossed by forming premises.
Meanwhile, I received a book with my work and tear sheets. Although all three times exist simultaneously, it is interesting that there couldn't be another book “Best of Photography 2013” and there will have never been other photographs which will be secured by the title of describing them book as the best photographs of 2013, the year of positive changes.
The next equally beautiful opportunity to change something will be in 2113 and 3013 correspondingly. I am here. But if you are reading this at least in 2113, then the past, the present and the future do exist simultaneously.
