Hello fellow humans of the internet! I’m here to tell you about my new blog.
So what’s motivated me to start up a blog?
Well, people who know me well enough know that I enjoy photography and other forms of creativity. I’d like to say that this is going to be a photography blog, but I feel that the photography that I’ll be sharing on this blog is just part of an output of my ideas, perspectives and philosophies on life. For me, life isn’t solid and therefore I’d rather not be called a ‘photographer’ because labels just put people into categories and I feel that as humans, we are far more complex than being put into simple categories. But yes, there is a part of me that enjoys photography! There are also parts of me that enjoy cooking, walking, music and dreaming. So I guess if I’m going to categorise myself for the sake of this blog, then call me a Artist…who enjoys photography…..really though I’m just a human…aren’t I?!
Say what you want to say, not what you think others might want you to
I think in our culture – and I’d say particularly in my country, the UK. We worry about what the others think, now I’m not saying there is any problem with thinking about others and that is also a very beautiful quality to have (and necessary for things to grow and work). BUT if you never say what you want to say, then you are essentially giving your power away to the other person, you are undermining yourself to a huge degree and not only is it detrimental to yourself but it is to the other person as well – they THINK they’re getting the real you, but really they’re just getting an idealised version of you – the idea that they have of you through what they see.
If I go off on a tangent then I do apologise, I easily get carried away!
So there you go, my first post. I hope you enjoyed it and I look forward to sharing and connecting with you intergalactic interwebbers in the near future!
