I've been looking through my archives of photographs. Faded memories from years gone by. They feel like a lifetime ago and yet when I look through these images, I'm instantly transported back to that moment. I want to take photos again. Not for work or necessity, but for the joy of it. My love and I have been living in abroad in Canada for well over a year now and sadly, I have a shameful amount of photos from our time here. I want to remember how beautiful this place is and how wonderful I feel right now with life. My life is far from perfect, but when I look back on these older photos, I'm reminded of a time when I was quite unhappy. I was going through a lot of stuff. It challenged and changed me and although I didn't realise at the time, it's made me a stronger, more insightful person because of it. I'm a different person now in so many ways. Unlike these older photographs, I don't have many images to retell the tales of life as it is today. Time to get snapping!
Where possible, I'd like to take an image every day. Or at least as often as I can keep up with. For now, here are some of those memories from distant days. Living in a share house. The early years of our relationship. Changing family dynamics. A baby niece. Finishing university and wondering what I'll do next.
