Freedom in Black and White

Every now and again, you can't help but feel strangled, secluded, alone, and hidden away in a corner.

 

Then something happens. Something which makes you go outside. Something that makes you expand, explode with life, and go from being a zombie to being alive. 100%, irrevocably alive.

 

This photo was taken in difficult circumstances. In a difficult week-end, which started with the girl in the picture being my girlfriend, and ended with the girl in the picture no longer being my girlfriend.

 

But no matter what, I can't help but thinking that for just this one moment, we were perfect - in touch with each other, and the world.

 

It feels amazing.

 

And whatever pain happened that weekend, about 12 years ago, it was all worth it, just for this one picture.
