Live for Life

Personal 18 August 2015

14th roll of film: It’s all about the journey and process of navigating life. Sometimes you’ve just got to live for the sake of being alive.

I recently developed a roll of film that sat in my Zenit-B since early this year and the memories that came flooding back as I looked at these photos were immense and overwhelming. I’ve always be fond of film photography – the feeling of the mechanic click of a shutter, the rusty viewfinder, and the surprises of viewing the developed photos. It makes me realise that the journey is so much more important than just a mere end result or a destination. The process is imbued with so much flavour and exciting dynamics that construct experiences and wisdom.

 

It’s crazy to realise, sometimes, how quickly things can change; be it ourselves, others or the world around us. Everything is so interconnected and as the world evolves, so do we – and our mindsets towards life. I think life has slowly taught me to cherish the things that are elusive and constantly in a state of transformation. It’s the things that slip from your hand like grains of sand and the often unnoticed moments in life that have changed you as a person and opened your eyes a little wider to the greater things in life.
