"The Sacrament of love"


Hello citadel, we met again! It's obvious my hometown doesn't offer many interesting places to take pictures. Truth be told, I've been getting a little bored these days just because I haven't had any productive thing to do. I just wake up late and have that creepy desire to do something new! Then I end up hanging out with my girls and taking pictures inside the walls of the citadel again and again.
Inside the citadel there's an old Orthodox church called "Saint Mary" in which I am baptized when I was two years old. It is very ancient and dark and beautiful. So, why not to try to take pictures inside of it?

Cheers darlin'

 You know it's time for a little party when you pick up a dress from your closet. Maybe, each one of you may think that I'm sort of a "tomboy" when dressing up and I can assure you that I actually am...well, most of the time! But it's not that difficult either to get a little "girly" so just don't get confused! I like wearing dresses on special events or parties, mostly. I always try to choose beautiful patterns or colors which fit a lot with my taste. This dress is one of the cutest ones I have. I fancy every kind of outfit which contains striped patterns. I paired the dress with some darker elements to make it less sweet.

Angels walking among us...

This time, I wanted to represent something "ancient" and different. I adore everything that is old, starting from the buildings to the bricks, clothes, antique items or jewelries and most of all: old pictures which are taken with traditional film cameras. So, the best place to take the photographs this time was the castle of my hometown, Elbasan. This castle is a 15th-century fortress located in the center of the city which carries many histories within. It's true that many people, especially teenagers like taking pictures inside of these walls but as I said at the beginning, my purpose was to bring something different and I really hope you will enjoy it!

In bloom...

Just another post reminiscing joyful summer days. It felt like I was in touch with nature and it's four elements. I guess you can tell that this kind of environment enables my encounter with them.

The foreboding sense of impending happiness...

I believe that each one of has had the chance to get drown in happiness even for no reason once in a lifetime! Is that kind of feeling you get when you truly believe that everything is going just fine. You stop thinking about bad stuff or sad stories and start accepting your life the way it comes because there's always a reason why things happen the way they happen or why you meet people everyday! Let the spring blow inside your heart no matter what season it really is...I was having exactly this kind of sensation.So I woke up, tried to find the most colorful clothes I had taken for vacations and also chose the most colorful corner of the town because I got that "foreboding sense of impending happiness"...

U grow me like an Evergreen

These photographs are taken last summer when I and my best friend used to wake up at 5' o clock in the morning just for photoshooting! Yeap, so damn early and all the reasons were two good ones :
 1) The early morning light is the best light to photograph and 2) The city is so calm because there's no crowd of people walking everywhere, everybody is sleeping or just a few people are going to work. So we wouldn't need to feel ashamed by posing in front of the camera. 

Anyway, that part of waking up it was a little hard for me as long as I am a sleepyhead but for Photography and Art I would sacrifice anything...even sleep!

Mon meilleur voyage...



Mon meilleur voyage which means: My best trip! It started from Albania to Belgium, Nederlands, Germany and the cherry above the cake was France! Yeap, I had the chance to visit one of the most beautiful and attractive cities of the world which everyone dreams about: Paris! I was totally amazed by everything, starting from the old buildings, the gothic architecture which is my favorite, it's culture , the wonderful stories hidden behind each monument and everything! It's amazing how much I had to walk that day just to see the mos popular monuments and never get tired or bored because each street was adorable and I really could enjoy every step! 



Here are some pictures of this little piece of heaven fallen on earth that impressed me a lot.

                Oh-la -laa...Paris!

More psychedelic yuppie flu...

               

Inspired by the psychedelic culture, that day decided to show more "respect" for Summer by wearing more colors than usually.

All of the colors I see my love, everytime I see you...


Every Summer I like to take vacations in places where the weather is cooler than anywhere else...that's all because I really hate the hot weather! There's a little town in Albania called Pogradec where the weather is so peaceful for my state of mind. I go there every summer so I can really relax myself by doing whatever I want especially photographing! There is also an old alley which is my favorite street. Since my parents bought me a professional camera I always try to find attractive places to take photos. Here are the photos I took one day in that alley in front of a colorful old door.No longer than yesterday I realized that it was the house of a good painter who still lives in that town.
 I was wearing jeans overalls for the first time this summer thanks to the fresh weather.

Those were the reasons and that was New York...

This post is totally a product of a vintage dressing-style inspiration. Actually, I adore anything which belongs to an old period of time in the past especially the original ones which come without intrusions into. I love the way people dressed in the old and glorious years of 60s, 70s or 80s. I'm also totally in love with the old New York city and the stories which are hold in all those avenues full of lights, rock n' roll and laughter.
These pictures are taken in a random birthday party where I tried to look a little "Vintage" even though it wasn't a Retro party. Anyway, when I came home and saw the pictures the first thing that came through my mind was a lovely song of Leonard Cohen - "Chelsea Hotel" and voil√†! I just had a quick inspiring moment! I chose some nice filters for the photographs so they can also look old like they were taken with a polaroid or something! So, let's say I was pretending to give the impression of a New York baby! 



Circle of fear


Hello, strangers or known people or friends or family, whoever you are!Welcome to my blog! As you can see, I finally decided to create a web page about myself. Well, truth is that many friends of mine have recommended me to open a blog for ages but to be honest I've always been lazy to deal with it. But now that I'm on holidays and have nothing better to do I said to myself "why not?!" So here I am...
* Firstly let me introduce : My real name is Kristiana Bella. I'm 19 from Elbasan, Albania and I can't wait to move to Tirana where I'm going to continue my studies as an Art & Design student. I love all the forms of art! I love painting especially animes and I kind of consider myself a passionate photographer! I also have a passion for fashion but I don't really follow the latest trends...I think I have my own unique style that you are going to explore very soon.
* What about the "Circle of Kurisu" ...well that's a long story. Since I was little I was a big fan of animes and japanese culture so I found what was my name in that language. There it was...Kurisu! Cute isn't it? Since that time I kept it as my second name or nickname...actually many friends call me like that and I get a little spoiled. lol
As for the "circle" is kind of a personal story. I'm inspired by the title of "HIM" song "Circle of fear"


.


But now it's my circle and inside of this circle I'm going to show you little wonders of my mind, my soul, my heart and my entire world.
* I won't promise you I will be active on posting but I'll try not to leave it behind!


                                                                                                                     Hope you like my circle! :)
