Isnt it funny how we so often look back and think… if only.
If only I had taken that trip or bought that car or turned left or done that thing I said I would do or changed something or gotten help. If only I had started then.
If only. If only. If only.
Well. Stuff it. I’m starting now.
I don't want to look back in a years time AGAIN and think I should have started that blog a year ago…. which ironically I DID start a year ago. Wrote 3 entries and have just deleted them as no longer applicable. Actually that’s not entirely true. They just were a bit irrelevant to what I actually want to do.
My passion is travel and photography. I’m driven by watching how people interact and engage with each other. The joy that comes from seeing people love what they do is inspiring and being able to capture this gives me joy.
Emotion caught in a photo.
Smiles. Laughter. Tears. Reflection. Joy. Strength. Pride. Happiness. Sadness. Braveness. Courage.
I can see it when people ride bikes. When they play music. When they dance. When small children do something new. When we’re not even aware of being watched.
Whatever the movement is I want to freeze frame it.
Travel is the same in many ways. Moments of time that once you’re home you wonder if they happened. The thing I love most about my job is the stories when my clients return. Where they went, how they got there, what happened while there and what is their favourite moments. Sometimes they dont even have photos. They rely on their memories and ability to tell a story. Photos tell the story of a trip.
They capture the order of time of a journey.
I’m going on a journey. I don’t know where to …. but please come with me x
