A picture I’m not too sure I like or not, but that’s quite important to me.
The beautiful woman in it is Laura Zalenga.
When I picked my first DSLR and opened my Flickr account 3 years ago, Laura’s profile was literally the FIRST thing I stumbled upon by exploring the website and I was immediately fascinated by her work. And throughout my photographic journey these past years, her art (among a few others) has been one of my biggest inspirations.
Then I finally met her, and all these amazing, talented artists this summer (I played cool and didn’t burst into fan-boy mode), and I realized how crazy life is. How we are all on the same boat. How a little kid with a camera can find inspiration in this crazy thing called Internet from these people from all over the world, who share their ways of portraying their realities and imagination to strangers…strangers that eventually became friends.
That’s the beauty of it! The true human and artistic connection between people who decided to take the leap leading to friendship.
So yeah..I’ll wrap this up… Laura is cool, Flickr is cool, art is cool and friends are awesome. YAY.
