As an introduction to myself and my blog, I felt that they best way to do that would be to showcase a handful of photos that I think best represent me!
This first picture was taken by the Marble Arch, London in 2016. Although I don’t think it’s the best picture I’ve taken, it is by far my favourite. I always wonder how much the young girl knew about the situation (Syrian conflict/Aleppo siege) that had brought her to the square that day, whenever I look back I’m drawn to the innocent look on her face; a contrast to the reason why she was there.
This second photo, taken in Iceland at Solheimasandur beach, is one of my favourites. The black sands stretched across the horizon, bringing with it a very eerie feeling, as if you were no longer on earth. That is what I enjoy; feeling a little bit lost and out of my comfort zone. I’d like to travel for as long as I can and just like that plane, even when it’s not possible, I’ll still be looking off into the distance!
The final picture: Oistins Fish Fry, Barbados. I feel this picture helps describe me in a couple of ways. My roots are from Barbados, for starters. Also, I enjoy the vibe this photo depicts; its warm, it’s communal and it’s relaxed. The food was great too, which is always a bonus.
I like to travel, I’m interested in people and I think it’s good to put yourself on the edge of where you’re comfortable. Next year I’m looking into photo-journalism courses, I feel that I’m getting to the age now where I really need to start knuckling down and pursuing my dream career, which would happen to encorporate a lot of my dreams anyway.
