A personal blog is perhaps the closest thing there is to witnessing someone’s metamorphosis, which is truly a thing of beauty. If you’re anything like me, you most definitely can’t grasp the idea of settling for things as they are. I live to grow, to learn something new every day, to try and see the world through different eyes, to evolve, to constantly push myself, even if it’s with the small things.
When it comes to photography, I wasn’t always the greatest subject, not that I am today ^_^ I remember running away when someone was about to take a picture of me, I remember the awkward feeling I got right before the click (that as expected translated to an even stiffer face on film), I just couldn’t relax, a robot would have made a better job at faking an emotion. Ever since creating this blog though, I learned to let go little by little, things got considerably easier, although I still have difficulties shooting when there are lots and lots of people around. And that’s ok, we all have our anxieties and our struggles, without them there wouldn’t probably be a journey for us to go through. But wanting to overcome them is what truly makes the difference.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” — Thich Nhat Hanh
