The equivalent of a twenty-year old girl who has been fascinating the world with her imagination.
This is for Kitty Gallanaugh because she completed her 365 today.
Kitty, I remember seeing your photos for the first time. I remember those vibrant colours, your life and what you see in the world captured so beautifully. I remember going through all of your photos and the messages we exchanged a few days later. The only thing I don't remember is when all that took place. Because at this moment, I feel like I've known you for so long. I don't have a lot to say really that would express how much your work means to me. It's just that when I look at a photo you took, I'm looking at a world that seems perfect. Your perfect little world. Now I know that you went through hard times as well, that it is probably anything but perfect, that you might be just as unsure at times as everybody else. But what you make of it is just so beautiful to look at. So lovely actually. And as a matter of fact that is the one word that I always connect to you in my mind. I am not quite sure as to why that is, but when I think about it it just fits. You are lovely, Ive seen that in your words, your photos, and even more so in a video you once made. Which is why I am so excited to finally meet you in real life. But for now, this photo is for you and I want to congratulate you for finishing your 365 project. And at the same time I want to thank you, for sharing 365 wonderful photos and more with us in the past year. I've looked at every single one and as a whole, they couldnt have been any more perfect. I hope you know that, and I hope that your photos will forever be a part of my life.
