I'm in a comfortable place. It took 12 or 13 years, but here I am finally understanding what the photos I take mean to me.
Sometimes I can get a have some OCD with numbers. 10 pictures to 2000 uploads here and 10 days to my 30th birthday. First I looked at those two and thought about doing some shitty "yay 2k photos / 30 years" but it would be borderline lame, more than this. So... Start over.
The thing that I've discovered about photography is that it was never the end. It has always been a mean of understanding my surroundings: smiles, relationships, details that sparked attention, etc... .
Damn, I've been doing it all wrong. .
Those photos could, but shouldn't have stood on their own. They needed a helping hand to guide viewer's into them. So it is not at all that I want to erase the past, I want to celebrate it again with subtitles. I want to share what and why it meant. :) .
PS: I could have also written this entire thing only to justify a self portrait drinking coffee and wearing boxers in budapest, who knows.
