A life so changed. I haven’t been very active on here for the majority of the year. As I’ve been adapting to a new mindset, new interests, a new job and an overall better quality of life than I’ve ever known before, I haven’t been focusing on photography or social media pretty much at all. I’ve been outside taking photos twice since the beginning of the year (with disastrous photos to show for it) and it honestly feels like I’ve forgotten how a camera works. Although I know that’s not true, I’ve still felt frustrated and discouraged when picking up the camera. I’ve been too specific in what I have wanted to make photos of for the past year, which have resulted in me taking barely any photos at all - and not really enjoying it when I finally brought out the camera. So no more of that. It’s time to do it right... To make photos of everything and nothing, and just have fun with it... For the love of photography. (also hi, this is me in my element - overthinking 👋🏼)
sunlight & honesty, highlights to wanna repeat 🌊
In the midst of a dream
Everything you know is inside your head. You have all that you need right here. Let the words slip from your hand without thinking about it. Sketch the visions, write the thoughts, express the emotions. Feel the music, acknowledge every instrument, let your mind open up to an entirely different world. Run through the sunlit jungle where the only sounds you hear are those of waterfalls and animals. Ride a horse through a moonlit desert under the clear skies and a million stars. Let the story unfold, catch the inspiration. Journal entry #12 . The great escape into the mind. September 30, 2017.
Unable to stay, unwilling to leave
Lake Jasna with the Julian Alps in the distance. Slovenia never fails 🇸🇮
I love the hike, every step of it.
“Take shelter under the cloud, while they flee to carts and sheds”. This week’s weather has been all rain and fog, and I’m living for it 🌧
You’ll find me lost in the woods 🌲
Golden afternoons ✨
Homely ground ☁️☁️
Roads untravelled 💭
“Aloneness became loneliness and the sensation was strong enough to remind me (how could I have forgotten?) that the one thing better than solitude, the only thing better than solitude, is society”.
“Somnolence - A heaviness in the air, a chill in the sunlight, an oppressive stillness in the atmosphere that hints of much but says nothing”.
A blue river somewhere at the bottom of the mountains in northern Italy 💙
‘Cause you said ours were the lighthouse towers, the sand upon that place, darling I’ll grow weary, happy still, with just the memory of your face 🎶
“Life has come to a standstill, at least for the hour. In this forgotten place the tree and I wait on the shore of time, temporarily free from the force of motion and process and the surge toward- what? Something called the future? I am free, I am compelled, to contemplate the world which underlies life, struggle, thought, ideas, the human labyrinth of hope and despair”. 🌲
Out here the clock doesn’t exist. Out here there’s day and night, dusk and dawn, light and dark. Seconds, minutes and hours don’t matter. Out here you don’t have to be somewhere at a specific time. Out here you get lost in time. Lost in the moment. You only have to focus on the beauty that surrounds you. Out here you just admire, for as long as the heart desires. There’s no having “spent enough time” here. Out here it all flows together. | On time & the wilderness: A short and simple entry from my stream-of-consciousness journal from last year.
