I’ve been writing a lot lately. I’ve been writing more than usual. The last thing on my mind, is to find images that fit the words I’ve written. It’s been like the time, when I wrote a blog post asking my readers if I need to use images in my blog posts? The feedback was mostly that images are too important not to be included. I agree. But, on the other hand, when I write, it’s just me and my words. I never think about the images I should be using.
I don’t know why. Because, everytime I write, I picture exactly what I’m writing. I can see myself walking outside in the darkness, and I can see myself watching her – it doesn’t matter if I’m inside watching the words on a screen. I’m always the main character of the story – even if I’m lurking in the shadows. But, it’s more like I’m starring in a movie.
The same thing is happening to me when I’m listening to music. It starts with the first sound, and as soon as the first instrument starts playing, my mind starts drifting away.
I’m listening to a song right now, it’s called Skinny Love by Birdy, and when I hear her soft voice singing; Come on skinny love just last the year. Pour a little salt we were never here. I imagine myself, standing in the shadows, looking at her, telling myself to be patient. I just need to wait, and everything will be ok.
Sometimes, it feels that I’m actually doing it, because it’s who I am. Sometimes, it feels like I’m forcing myself to let go.
I want you to focus on my words, and I want you to remember my story. That’s why I really don’t want to use stock photos or anything other than my own photos.
I’d like to come up with a blog post, and then go outside with my camera, and take the “perfect” photo. I’d like to do everything. I’d like to create the complete blog post. I want it to be 100% my work.
That’s why I have decided to use my own photos from now on. If it’s not my own photo, I won’t use an image. That’s exactly why this post doesn’t have one included.
