My first blog post! Hopefully I will look back at this post in another six years and be able to laugh at the insecurity and hesitation I felt while writing “that first post”.
This day, this enthusiasm, this moment of taking action has been six years in the making. Saying I should have done this six years ago after finishing my photography studies is easy. But I can’t help feeling that it was necessary for the past six years to go by. It was necessary for the past six years to rage its course, to take its toll and, at certain times, to go by somewhat aimlessly. In these six years I have fallen, I have hesitated and I have learnt. I would like to think that I am done with the hesitation and I have made peace with the fact that falling and learning is essential to living.
I won’t bore you with the details on all my lessons and the mediocre journey I have made to come to the insight that photography is my passion. So this first blog post is my first baby step toward realizing my dream – and also the last post without photographs.
