Хочу быть отшельником в горах Тибета 🗻....Хочу пасти пушистых овец, 🐑 едва напоминающих облака ☁...Хочу просыпаться от песен ветра рано-рано утром... 🍃 А пока медитируем с Бешиками @fruit_besh 🐏🐑
2/25 [ 1.0 ]
We face today an unprecedented set of problems relating to the world where we live, we stand at the Abyss, at the steadily approaching threshold of unimaginable chaos and war. Over time, I have encountered many strangers who as well see me as a stranger documenting them. I like the anonymity, the fact that you're a stranger making strangers laugh. You aren't forcing them to laugh - it's involuntary, and that's when they give the most honest response. And that's why I have concluded that our best hope for the future is not to get people to think of all humanity as family - that's impossible, nevertheless, even if we don't empathize with distant strangers, their lives have the same value as the lives of those we LOVE, and that (LOVE) is the entry point for a better future living together. The series (BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS) will be a continuous story in my documentary journey, and it will be featuring portraits of both young and old I encounter during projects or my routine photo-walk. .
DAY ONE - 24/04/17 (My 24th Birthday)
A lovely start to an amazing birthday. I woke up early, went for a run before receiving lots of thoughtful presents from @ben.kyles including these lovely flowers. We went for breakfast at @atinakitchen followed by a massage. Then some bowling for a nostalgic rainy day activity along with air hockey and other arcade games. Went to see my family, played with tigs in the garden 🐶 and then a surprise meal at @upstairsatthegrill which was incredible! A jam packed birthday!
Hopefully my photos will improve over the course of a year but I thought it would be a nice way to document the little things each day. No fancy equipment just my iPhone 7 or possibly my Nikon camera when I take that out occasionally!
The plan is to make sure I take a photo a day even if I don't post it that same day so I should have 365 by the time I turn 25!
4/25/17 - "Theme from The Search for Everything" (or "looking back on decisions I once thought impossible")
You look at a picture of yourself. From right before it all fell apart. And you think of the happiness you had. You look at yourself now and wonder who you are. Who you were then. How much you’ve told yourself you’ve changed. How much you haven’t. How much you have. How much you still want to. You look at the people you’ve brought closer into your life. The experiences you’ve had because of all of this. And you think for a moment. Maybe this will all be okay. Maybe this is working out. Maybe I am doing this right. Maybe this search isn’t useless.
4/23/17 - "The Night We Met"
I remember that blue dress. I remember looking across the parking lot and thinking that I wanted to know every little detail of who you were. And in the past 14 years I've learned so much. And each day I still yearn to learn more. This path hasn't been easy. I've loved you. I've lost you. I've been hurt by you. I've had my barriers broken down by you. And I've had to build even more because of you. But even with all of our ups and downs and everything. I still want to learn every detail. I'm still going to be here for you no matter what. I'm always going to be a safe place to land. Nobody said it was easy. Nobody said it would be so hard...
4/24/17 - "My dearest"
I don't ever want you to feel like this. I don't ever want to see you go through this pain. I've seen it time and time again. And I'm sick of it. I want you to have all the greatness you deserve. I want you to be constantly happy. I want you to be seen for all the greatness that you are. I want someone to come into your life who looks at you and says, you are the greatest thing on the face of this planet. I want someone to finally stand there and say, I will never hurt you, and mean it. You deserve the world. The moon and the stars. The whole universe. And I know someone will see that. And I know that when they do, they will never let you go. No matter what.
