We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.

Window light is some of the best lighting in the world.
It is soft, it’s magical, and best of all, it is free. Find a scene lit only by window light and see what you can do with it. Take a portrait by window light. Or just let the light wash over a classic “bowl of fruit” still life. No matter what, you will learn why photographers have been relying on window light for years to create beautiful images.
Randomness has somewhat differing meanings as used in various fields. It also has common meanings which are connected to the notion of predictability (or lack thereof) of events.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines ‘random’ as “Having no definite aim or purpose; not sent or guided in a particular direction; made, done, occurring, etc., without method or conscious choice; haphazard.” This concept of randomness suggests a non-order or non-coherence in a sequence of symbols or steps, such that there is no intelligible pattern or combination.
Meaning and origin.
Olga is an Old Russian borrowing from the Scandinavian languages. It derives from the Old Scandinavian name Helga that is a feminine variant of the name Helgi that means “holy, sacred”. The name Olga means “holy, sacred, light”. The mistress of this light and beautiful name is usually a remarkable person. The persistence of the Vikings is concentrated in the name. Perhaps this is the reason of the integrity of Olga’s character.

A noir moment is one of those things that happens in daily life where you can’t help but wonder how (insert film noir character) would have handled it better, or at least more interestingly.
To put it more complicatedly, it is one of those moments which at first may seem innocuous, but depending on your psychological state of mind at that precise second, can be perceived entirely differently, and your subsequent course of action could alter the course of everything that follows like a tumbling row of dominoes.
These moments may touch on a noirish psychological state such as unrequited desire, paranoia, obsession, despair, and so forth.
