I looooooove taking pictures. Of everything. Big things, funny things, pretty things, silly things, etc. A photo has a way of capturing a moment in time that you're never gonna get back. And I don't mean that in a harsh way. You may not be able to go back to that certain time but its the memory that makes it real to you. Memories are the ABSOLUTE BEST. Especially the good ones. :)
I find it so cool that everyone in the whole world has a different library of memories and ones that they hold dear to them. Even if two people are participating in the same event, they're both going to remember it differently.
The best way for me to remember my memories is by looking back on old pictures I have taken. I publish all of my "creative work" on a website/app called VSCO.
It is one of the best photo editing apps I've used for quick fixes and it also has amazing filters. Almost all of my friends are obsessed with it.
Unlike Instagram, VSCO does not depend on likes are hashtags. Its not about popularity, its about the art. Now don't get me wrong I love uploading pictures so Instagram, but the pictures I post on that app are more for chronological purposes. I post to keep all my friends updated on things going on in my life.
But there are always many different layers to a person. I'd like to think of instagram as kind of like my mask. Its the thing that I want people to see. I feel that VSCO showcases the real me. The things that I see through my own eyes, uncut and unedited (not literally tho). I don't post on VSCO because I want to get 200 plus likes. I post for me. Its one of the best ways I can comfortably express myself.
And the best part is that I don't have to use a fancy DSLR camera. All of the photos on there were taken on my phone (iPhone 6).
Not only do I like viewing my own profile but I like to view others. The app opens you up to many other profiles from around the world and its enthralling to be connected with others in that way.
Anyway I put together a slideshow of some of my favorite pictures from my account that I think truly enrapture some of the beautiful things that I've on during my 16 years on this earth.
