Photo of the Week: Louiza, Ordinary Day

2008-04-04-louiza-ordinary-dayI know, I know: what the Hell am I thinking? Louiza was also featured in the previous Photo of the Week. However, this particular picture is one I have long sought among the thousands on my PC, ever since Photo of the Week was conceived of, by Ergo Proxy. It was taken a year ago, almost to the day, on the 10th of April 2008 (4 days after I got back from Japan). It really struck me because I realized it was probably the first time I was seeing Louiza in her casual wear and wearing next to no make-up (at least, none that I can perceive of). Remember, I used to meet all of you strictly at night, at KABATZA or Japanese-related parties at BIOS, which translated in a certain apparel for most. This image of her, casually strolling around Exarheia, with huge headphones around her neck and the green-turned-blonde tufts of hair, made me think how weird it was I had almost never seen her in the light of day and once more brought to mind her actual age.

It is really odd, but at the time, apart from a tight circle of friends, I would rarely meet and talk with people in the middle of the street, in broad daylight: there was no particular reason behind that; it was just so. I am not entirely sure what else this encounter and picture made me think of, since I had been at the other side of the Earth just 4 days prior and my mind was wired differently at least for a month. At any rate, one thing is certain: it brought to mind the beginning and end of Vanessa Carlton’s “Ordinary Day”, with the single change of the word “boy” into “girl”:

Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just tryin’ to get by
Just a girl, just an ordinary girl
But she was looking to the sky

Indeed, what are we all, except ordinary people who simply dare raise their eyes to the sky and dream?
