Hi everyone, how are you today? I am sure that this title has associated you with another essay, which you once had as a topic for homework when you were at school… I know that I also had the same problem to think of the name of this post. For hours I just watched in the keyboard, but the inspiration has left the building. After an interesting summer, it was time to rest for a couple of days and now I’m preparing for new adventures that await me at the end of this month. I just can’t wait to share it with you guys!
Few days ago, I received a message from my friend. She heard that I finally came in Belgrade and we had to go on a little coffee break and of course one round of chit-chat.
I immediately agreed and postponed some of the duties that I had on that day. At the end of the conversation she just mentioned that I should took the camera with me and that if I had something important to shoot for the blog. She would like to me photos of me, if I have some free time. I’m thinking in my head for a few seconds, “Man, where’s my camera?!”. When you do not use some things for a couple of days, you forget about them completely.
People who know me know how much I am organized and that I all write my appointments and important tasks and duties in a special diary, and just cover over the obligations and meetings I have to do. I did not notice one collaboration because I seemed to be at some point my minds were away, so I was a little creative and almost painted one part in my diary. After a few seconds, I saw the writing “Beige pants for post – publish until 29.08”. At the moment of shock, I said, “Oh man, I have the time today is just 11. I do not have to shoot it today…
I continued to look at things in the closet further and I just took the clothes which I was planned to wear. First I played my playlist for a happy mood, turn on the flatiron and I started to iron in the rhythm of some Latin song and at that moment hit me in the head “MARKOO YOU’RE STUPID MORON, NOW IS SEPTEMBER!”. I take my planner quickly again to turn all of the pages to find the page with my calendar of posting on the blog and realize that I am late seriously for this job!
With the speed of light I found trousers because clothing in my closet is organised ver well, I can thank my mother who regularly reads the diary and she make the right order of the things that arrive when I am not there. No one cares as a mother… I turn on the iron again to refresh the trousers, I continue to sing and dance in the rhythm of music with the iron in my hands, yes it’s crazy I know! A message from a friend: “I’m going to be late for 15 minutes, do not make a panic!”
This girl knows how I’m sensitive when we talk about delays. I just thought about that if she only knows how late I would not stay alive from her nasty comments. I’m proud that I’m very well trained to iron all types of trousers, men should make some special monument which will be dedicated to all of the women who know to iron classic trousers, who knows this, believe me if you already have learned this you finished the most important exam at the “life school”! ?
This feeling of happiness and pride was short, because I realized that the t-shirt which I just ironed at all did not combine at all with the colour of the trousers. I started to look for another shirt that it will stick better with this outfit. Yes! I just found an ideal shirt that was already ironed, you can not understand that dose of luck, I just wanted to cry because I don’t need to use that iron machine again!
At the end, little Marko was late for more than ten minutes, but we did not care about it because when we started with our stories that have no end at all. We did not see each other for months and we had too much to tell, but since we are the professionals we have been able to short everything in record time – ONE hour! All important things which happened to us for all those months we put it all in one hour of conversation. She mentioned to me a course of photography and that she would like to use my camera and to make photos of me for the blog, so I suddenly became the first model she officially photographed…
Frankly, I am very pleased with the results of our first collaboration and I hope that we will continue our collaboration in the future. She tried to “get me in special model pose”, but that’s almost impossible! I’m not a professional model that you’ll put in a mold, some photographers tried to change me many for my career with the explanation that the images will be much better and “viral” on social networks and the Internet, but this was never of any concern for me. It is better to remain with the thing which you already have and to stay unique and original, without popularity than to sell yourself for what?
And this time Belgrade’s streets helped me well and now must post have some special extended value for me. Many of you asked me if I forgot my beloved Belgrade. I’m not coming to often… You can never forget the place which is your home! Maybe I have the opportunity to explore the world, but I will always return to my Belgrade again and again. This was a short episode “Marko is coming home” and I hope you liked my little adventure in Belgrade. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Italian fashion brand Eleventy for wonderful cooperation and understanding, as well as my friend for these beautiful photos.
