A few months ago, I took a short trip to Puebla to discover the city, and to re-discover my own self. As a lot of people may know, I am a photographer and I do love taking photographs of the beauty that can be seen in front of me. Little did I realise that there was also beauty within me, which I often overlooked.
You see, I have battled with eating disorders and not loving my body for the longest time. But as I continually discover habits in myself, or the little things that I do enjoy or appreciate, I have grown to love the bits and pieces of me. I know that I do not really post much photographs of myself, but if you would check on my Instagram, you will see that I have started to post more and more photographs that have me in them.
Anyway, here are a series of photographs that I have taken using a timer and tripod. These photographs will be included in my new photography series called ‘Timer + Tripod’. I hope you enjoy scrolling through them as much as I loved taking them.
I post these photographs as my journey through Mexico comes to a close. This country has been beautiful, amazing, and simply heart breaking. Heart breaking in the sense that it breaks my heart to leave, and my heart has been broken by people coming and then going away. But, you see, that is the point of travelling. One must always adapt and then must be able to leave when the time arrives. That has always been a problem, but I am ready for new beginnings. Well, at least, that is what I tell myself.
Mexico, muchas gracias. Until we meet again. Hasta luego.
