Analogue Photography in Words #1: A Place Where Time Does Not Flow

‘Made it as a writer’- I'm still wondering if  I've made it as a writer. This is a first story that will connect the art of analogue photography and the gift of writing. I hope you'll like it, and in future we will together connecting these two arts in the right way. Enjoy!

“Life is a journey not a destination” - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

What is life? Constantly traveling  from one experience to the other? A constantly expectation of happiness? Sometimes we get lost in a maze called life, looking for something, something that we are waiting for a long time and on the other side, losing what is most important. Losing time for life.

Time is priceless. You can use it, you can spend it, but if you ever lose it, you can never get it back. The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our catch. Just don’t forget to grab them! Don’t let time to take away the happiness we eagerly wait, in the woods called ‘life experience’ we have to be a tree which will always be with lot of blossoms. Because every human being deserves it. We should live each day as a small life, because life will be filled with the everyday experiences that will be remembered forever. And that is a blessing, blessing to us from us.

New day, a fresh start. A new capture in life waiting to be written, new questions to be asked and loved. And what's the better way to start it then a trip? To travel is to take a journey into yourself. I travel not to go anywhere but to go. If you go somewhere, far, far away from your home you’ll appreciate what you have but in the same time, you will learn to love everything new, everything  what you find on your way. You must remember one thing, wherever you go, go with all your heart, with pure soul and boundless energy.

Stations are the places that are always the same, that time don't change. They resist the change, they resist the time. The only thing that changes is the timetable, but always the same bell marks the beginning and end of trip. There are always people who wait to board and people waiting for someone,  someone dear to them. It's full of emotion, sincere smiles and tears. You can see a lovers who haven't seen for a long time, who can't wait to hug each other, and say ‘Love you’ ‘I've missed you’. You can see students going home, they can't wait to see their family. And you can always see someone how is ready to go, go somewhere to see some new place.

It's funny how man can make life more beautiful for himself, it's enough to release the spirit and be happy with himself. So far I still think, the most important thing is to enjoy your life. You don't know what is going to happen tomorrow, but you can try to make it best that you can. Life is rally simple when you know how to live it.

Open your eyes! Don't waste time! Live your life!
