Have you ever travelled somewhere so enchanting that you completely forgot to take photos? You’re so lost in the moment that your mind is just in awe with the right now?
That’s how my recent trip to Bali felt. I felt like I was completely immersed in every moment. Yet, I still came home with so many captured memories.
I recently read a Social Media post that read:
Solitude and photography
Often go hand in hand.
I’ve been pondering the statement and find it a bit perplexing. Yes, of course we are the lone masters of the viewfinder, we singlehandedly (usually) decide what to include and what to leave out. So very often, the photographic image is created and then quickly shared. Be it on the back of the camera, tethered to a monitor, published, posted to social media or a website, our images are viewed at daunting levels of frequency and speed. Very little happens in a vacuum these days!
We create alone and then share with the world.
