Since the start of graduate school in the Fall of 2011, there has been no time to pursue my passion: photography. It’s my safe place, my form of relaxation, my escape, a way for me to relax, and a way for me to express myself.
I was looking through photos of mine today and discovered this image:
This is an image of my friend’s children at a BBQ we attended before I left Maine.
With Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Blogs, cell phones, texting – – do we ever take the time to shut everything down and be present? Do we take the time to communicate with each other face to face anymore?
I love the ability to communicate with friends and family that are far away, as well as friends that are near by. I love how instant it is. I love the immediacy of it. But, I’m reminded as the semester starts to take off in full force – I need to step back, be simple, and be present.
