Today I really wanted to take some photos of a festival that was going on in my home town, but i didn't want to go alone... I never really want to go anywhere alone. Why? I don't know, I guess I used to feel like going alone was equivalent to vulnerability and in a way it is. My want of taking a photo outweighed the fear of being alone and I went. It was quite awkward at first; I felt on edge, shoulders back, face firm, back straight...and then everything just kind of relaxed me. I didn't stay long because the pollen count was extremely high and I started having a reaction but I enjoyed just walking around, keeping my opinions to myself, not having to constantly check to make sure a companion was still in toe...it was me and just me. You'll see the pictures soon on my other page and i'll post a link here when i do.
