Taking photographs has always brought me endless amounts of joy. Whenever I feel like getting lost in something that exercises my creativity but also makes me feel happy, I count on picture-taking. Every time I take a photograph, I want to show people how I see the world from my own eyes. It's not always easy translating your emotions and eyes onto a picture, but when it works out, it feels a lot like freedom and even more like fun.
Lately I have been using Instagram as a place to document my life. I think those who knock Instagram down and say it's a selfish place are people who don't understand it at all. My moments spent on Instagram are inspiring. There are so many other banjo players, pine cone collectors, mountain climbers, happiness seekers and life enthusiasts that make me want to reach my dreams. It's a place that is less about photography and more about story-telling which is why I started taking pictures in the first place, so I could tell my own story.
Here is the start of a monthly post where I share my life through photographs :)
