It’s a beautiful day today. Not too hot, not too cold. The skies are beautifully blue, with hints of dark clouds here and there. Pure with a dark edge (kinda allegorical of human nature, hmm?). The kind of day I like the best. It would have been perfect if not for the drone of all these generators disturbing the natural peace and calm. Yes, it’s Dumsor season. Permanently so, actually. The electricity said hasta la vista to us ages ago and hardly popped by for a visit these last few weeks.
Ghana Ghana… but let’s not dwell on the negative on a day like this. There are so many broader events, experiences, etc that shape what happens to us on a smaller personal level. It’s as if we see life as through a veil indeed. What do we know for certain? The more we know, the more we don’t know… These events might influence who we are, but in the end it’s all down to us how we choose to perceive them, who we choose to become and what we choose to put out into the world. Let’s choose positivity. Let’s choose to put out kindness. Let’s choose the light.
I find photography deeply fascinating. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words. Rightly so. A good photo has the power to grip you and transport you into another world entirely, a good photo can uplift you, fill you with a joy you cannot explain, and a hunger, inspiration to take charge of your own world, and to weave the strands together as magically as you glimpse in that photo. Photos inspire.
Little wonder then, that photography has grown to be one of my biggest passions…One of my new year resolutions this year actually, to be a “professional amateur” photographer. I know, lofty goals, right? But hey, they say to shoot for the sky, so yeah! And yeah, I’ve been working on it!!! There’s something about a good photograph that fills me a deep unexplainable happiness, and yet an angst; I am infused with so much inspiration. It’s my hope to share that with you everyday you are here. I feel so happy and blessed to be able to share bits and pieces of my life with you here, so happy when it resonates with you, and thrilled that I get to learn from you too. Thank you. And thank you Internet. 🙂
You cannot imagine how excited I am to bring this post to you today. It was getting to the end of the day, we were home tired after a long day away, but the light was just right, so what to do! I truly love how the spontaneous shadowy silhouettes turned out. I’m curious, which one is your favourite? Also, can you guess what I had on?? (Btw, remember that first silhouette shoot I did? Guess you can call this a series now. 🙂 ) We gather and wrap our clothes around us as armor, our protection and strength against whatever the day might decide to throw at us. I never felt as powerful as I did in this ensemble yesterday…Truly cannot wait to show you the actual shoot we did for this outfit yesterday, so stay tuuuuuned. 🙂
