• [ The 10 Things ] •
|| I was recently tagged by @rihkm to share 10 things about me, and I thought I’d take the opportunity to share a little more about the hand behind the pen. ||
1• Some of my favorite things include: Thai food, loose leaf tea, mismatched socks, mangos, blueberries, and golden hour.
2• I spent all of last year in Buenos Aires, Argentina (and various places of South America), and hope to spend my summer in Madrid.
3• I’m fluent in Spanish and am working on Portuguese, with the dream to someday be able to translate between five different languages.
4• Ansel Adams was my first photography inspiration, which contributes to why I continue to stubbornly post black and white images.
5• I’ve only been writing consistently for the past couple of years, but off and on since I was a child. (My first poem was about the color blue.)
6• I don’t like writing on the first page of a notebook. It’s too much pressure; to start off well and set the tone. I tend to skip it.
7• If given the choice, I prefer shooting portraits to anything else: to capture the truth about someone, beyond their mere appearance, and to see the truth behind their eyes.
8• I used to never share my poetry. The fact that now I can stand in front of a crowd and perform my work is a dream I didn’t know was possible.
9• I hope to have a book of poetry and photography in the process of publication within these next two years.
10• Someday, I want to move to Ireland.
I don’t know what else you might want to know, dear ones. But I’m open to questions if you have them!
–me. (at Santa Monica Mountains)
