Dupla de quando viajei a Coimbra para comemorar o aniversário da mulher que eu amo. De um lado, tudo verde como ela gosta: a cortina, as cadeiras, as folhas do eucalipto que levei para que ela pudesse ver de cima. Do outro lado, o fim de tarde na estrada, nos trilhos, a esperar ansiosa o encontro / Olympus Pen / 30 de março, 2019 #35mm#weshootfilm

[•] Your relationship partner has always a competitor with whom you are passionately unfaithful to him. Correct your nimbus, that's true. Moreover, if you have any problems with your actual partner, it is because of your lover (mistress).
Culture in general and mass culture in particular created an image of an ideal partner in our brains. Yes, this ideal person living in a monastery of your fantasies is not your personal invention, so you, pardon me, just composted your brain.
Each culture has its own criteria of beauty (however, even within one culture they change greatly from time to time). Each culture has its own requirements for a partner: somewhere a "genius of pure beauty" is required, somewhere it is "don't drink, don't smoke, and always give flowers," and that's good.
If you ask a man about what kind of a person his lady should be, he will list you a set of physical parameters of sexual nature, and then - a lot of additional options: should love, respect, recognize authority, consult, love the work of the housekeeper, but still it is necessary to self-realize, etc., etc., etc.
Women also know a lot about ideal images: a decent social status, responsibility, ability to provide for a family, to respect a woman's "personality", to support, to listen, not to be irritated, to be gentle and passionate, determined and caring...
The problem is not only that there are no such ideal men and women, and not even that these images are so controversial that they are objectively unviable. The real problem is that as long as you have this "lover" ("mistress") in your head, you will not be satisfied with your real partner.
Someone's gonna say no, I love my soul mate and I don't have a perfect image. Great! Honestly, I am very happy for you! But also you, keep in mind that when your favorite suddenly will not be so loved by you, the problem is probably not in him (her), but in the fact that behind the scenes appeared the same idealistic phantom.
If you kill him, you can learn to love for real. While he wanders behind the scenes, pretending to be ready to be on stage (lying!), you do not love the real person and suffer from it yourself.
In just 12 years between 1948 and 1960 Nikon released 6 iterations of the Nikon S. This Nikon S2 came right in the middle of this period in 1954. Compare this to the 1982 Nikon FM2, which didn't get replaced until 19 year later with the Nikon FM3A in 2001. ⠀
We're not sure which scenario is better, the constant change of the 50s or the consistency of the 90s - Perhaps the long time period between the FM2 to FM3a meant that Nikon & its customers were happy with the product, while the Nikon S series struggled to compete with Leica rangefinders and most notably the new M-mount on the release of the Leica M3 in 1954.⠀
