Way Back When…
I have been going through my photos from way back when – way before my blog, Foreign Sanctuary, existed. Back to a time when photography was purely for fun.
…when I lived in Taipei
…when I captured my first ever picture of a lotus
…when I realized how beautiful the shadows of this essential oil lamp was…and the feeling I felt when I hooked the cord while cleaning and the lamp came crashing down
…when I took the time to admire the rice fields in Meinong
…when I captured this shot that will forever be one of my favorites
…when I attended the Taiwan Lantern Festival for my own enjoyment and absolutely no other reason
Fast forward to now and I have the same feeling these days. I have been taking photos solely to document my son’s life. I have been capturing moments of my his life as he grows. They will be just reminders for me, for my husband, for our families, for him.
And I have learned that photography is very different when it is personal.
I have been sharing some these past and present photos on Instagram and will continue to do so in the future.
Why do you take photos?
