An Exploration of the Power Behind Emotion & Expression

Taking a Breather

In our world today, it feels like everything is happening too fast. It’s hard to just be in the moment, and even on vacation it’s hard to get some quality relaxation. This is why I like this picture so much, because it reminds me to stop, take a breather, and reflect on who I am and who I am becoming…even when the world continues to speed by at its non-stop pace.

I took this picture of my friend Morgan when we were going down an escalator. I had my tripod with my Canon Rebel T1i mounted on top and was standing a few steps behind her. As the escalator carried us downward, everything around her blurred, but because she remained motionless, she stayed in focus.

We probably looked like fools to the people watching us, going up and down the escalators numerous times trying to get the shot just right. But it was like being a little kid again, wanting to ride the escalator just one more time.
