I hope we realize that the life we all share (and don’t share) on the internet and social media is a conscious decision.
I think sometimes people look at an instagram or blog or facebook as if its a 100% representation of who that person is.
I look at my photographs that I share and wonder if people think my life is just one big carnival cruise. Haha. It’s definitely not. And alhamdulillah. I wouldn’t want to have a life that I didn’t earn and work for. I wouldn’t want a life that was just filled with a high point. Because then I wouldn’t feel all that high, would I? And I wouldn’t understand and appreciate the sensation that is triumph.
This is what I love about photographs. What it will mean to you is one thing. What I really felt at that point of my life is another thing. Sometimes I felt completely lost. Other times I felt so secure in who I was.
The story a photograph tells is in the eye of the beholder.
