I loved this week’s theme. There were so many images I wanted to create but decided to focus on one.
I want to walk
until the road and I
I want to go back
but there is no way for me to turn around
I can only go straight from here
I can only hope it gets brighter
The road I paved is mine to walk alone
I wrote that while brainstorming and replaying a specific memory in my head. Two years ago in October, I came back from my month long trip in the United States. Sia’s Chandelier was a big hit and it was playing everywhere, especially in New York; which was my last stop before returning home. It was the first time I travel alone, and for an entire month. Coming back was bittersweet. I remember the first shoot I did after coming back, I went out to shoot alone and while driving to the location, I had Chandelier playing on repeat. The road seemed never ending. I was nostalgic. I felt like I didn’t know how to readjust to my life here. It’s not that I hated being here, but I missed that sense of adventure I had throughout the whole month. Hopping from one plane to the other (10 total!) and meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. I just wanted to go back.
I also tried to sketch out what I wanted to do before shooting, just to help visualize it better. I’m so bad at sketching but every time I look at it I laugh, so I just had to share it haha.
Yay for Week 3 of the 52 Week Project! I’m excited to see where this goes 🙂
