It quietly turns to blue hour. My legs are tired, there’s a small bubble of frustration deep in my chest at my lack of fitness, but my heart is happy for being out. To have headed out with a tiny camera and trail running packs and to have been rewarded with an evening like this.
I’m stoked, because for this shoot I got to pick my own models, and location. I’m planning to shoot up on Sharp Edge at golden hour, getting a wintry vibe on a summer-autumn morning.
And it’s just that feeling, you know? With being a little uncomfortable but still safe. A feeling you crave.
Blindly enjoying the natural world just isn’t an option for me anymore; sustainable life choices and travel have become intrinsically linked and I’m wondering how I can do more. There’s more to ethical living than veganism.
I am putting more value into being alone. Not just accidentally, but to actually go out and seek aloneness.
Staying inspired is not a passive process. It’s not something you wait for. It’s something you go looking for – you chase it. You do it even when you don’t feel like it.
So, I packed up the camera bag and we headed out. Out into rain, heavy skies, small breaks.
This week somebody asked me if carrying a camera ruins the experience of adventuring for me.
So, I did anybody would when confronted with a curious child – I showed her the photos and started telling her all about Light Night.
