Nostalgia meaning is the sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past. Lately, I’ve been missing home. I’ve realised that it is more than just missing where I come from but also getting to know where I am from.
As photographers, we learn to tell stories of people around us but it has become increasingly difficult for me to do that without really knowing where I am from. This makes me a little jealous of birds, their freedom and their ability to fly.
I moved at an age where I did not really know where I came from or what was around me. As I grow older and as a lot more confusion sets in and my desire to create is halted and blocked for the most part, I’m starting to crave going back.
Perhaps it is going back to simpler times or simply to find roots for me and roots to being who I am.
The image, I am sharing today is called Flight. An image that I created nearly a year ago but haven’t shared possibly because it wasn’t the right time. Sometimes things come together at the right time.
The image is my perfect bliss. The sea for me is peaceful and nature at it’s best and the birds – pretty much what I’m feeling lately.
