Life is a Complex Beauty

I find comfort and risk in taking photos like this one. It is a simple photo of a darkened hallway but I find myself drawn to taking these kind of shots. I like the beauty of the darkness and gorgeous contrast of the light finding it’s place in the hall. I have a few photos on my bedroom wall so I can always look and reflect on certain shots. A lot of them look like this or have similar effects. I am proud of myself and proud of how far I’ve come from my childhood point and shoot days.

For a moment there I was struggling with self doubt but still kept my head up. I had to really take a step back and tell my self doubt that “I’ve got this”. It’s worked so far. It’s a struggle but I will continue to pursue my freedom. Sure, I’ll get lost at times but I will just pave another path until the day I can truly say that I am free and that I am home.

Shadow of the Memory

Leaving a place for the final time after you spent so many years going there is a bit overwhelming. I have many memories here and I hope to have more before the end of the year. No matter where I go there, I always see flashes of memories of pain, one sided friendship, and growth.
