A Picture Says a Thousand Words
They say a picture says a thousand words. When I get behind a camera I think of the million different things the viewer could be thinking when envisioning the concept behind the photograph, the environment, or simple the overall meaning. In this case, this photograph embodies a variety of things including my “hard on the outside, soft on the inside” persona. For those who know me, this “tough act” is in reality who I am. I’m a diamond that’s rough around the edges, whose worth is priceless. A bundle of personality that can easily in one moment be washed away and misguided by my ultimate goal to shelter my soft-heartedness from being exploited by the world. As I’ve grown older, I’ve decided to start to let people in and understand me.
Although this photograph doesn’t literally have me behind the camera, I am an indirect source of capture for the moment. So as I continue to embark on this journey to understand who I am, I will continue to share these moments with you.
