A picture is worth a thousand words…
For me, photographs act as a warehouse where I store my memories and feelings. No one can capture the moments and emotions without saying a single word better than the photos. Uber-powerful, that’s how I’d call them. A photograph has the power to do infinitely more than document. It can transport us to unseen worlds (Robert Draper). And not only that; images have this unique ability to spark an action, motivate, move, bring a solution.
I often find myself stumbling across Instagram looking for pictures that would inspire me to do the ‘thing’ I should do but feeling unmotivated to do it. It’s weird but whenever I can’t be bothered to go for a run, (yes, this happens to me too) I turn to photos. The pictures of runners, mountains and trails have this motivating effect on me.
That’s why I love ‘reading’ photo essays, stories and books. Sometimes even more than the written stories.
This is a photo essay about the best time of the year, Christmas but from a slightly different angle. From #MyChurch.
The first outing since my injury… An easy lunch run with my dad and Hugo
The first few days – sunny but sadly no snow
Two days in the Slovakian mountains called Mala Fatra. We couldn’t wish for a better weather – clear skies, sun and no wind.
My family tradition – continuous 6K hill run followed by a tea, some food and a typical shot plus a run down the ski piste.
And the last run…
“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” [Karl Lagerfeld]
How was your Christmas?
