It is truly fitting to start the year with this year. Although I am yet to give it a name, it’s an image 7 years in the making.
Allow me to explain. I vividly remember capturing this image as soon as the scene was presented to me. At the same time, I had envisioned a specific edited version in my mind. While clicking on the shutter, I knew that I did not have the skills to make it come to life. I decided to take a chance in myself and captured it anyway.
After numerous failed edits, I stopped trying and overtime forgot about it. I rediscovered it late last year during my annual hardrive backup.
I remember taking to it and mindlessly almost intuitively carrying out the edit while having “The Alienist” playing in the background.
I have chosen this image to officially start the year on the blog as I would like it to be representative of the year that I would like to have. A year where I take more chances, bet on myself, try new things and most importantly less overthinking.
