In life we make choices, and the hardest choices are the ones we make for ourselves. It’s hard and difficult because there are always people in your life that you consider when making those choices. If they were not in the frame then decisions would be easy but life rarely plays that card unless you’re squeezed into that position.
The following photo captures not just a moment in time but captures all that went before it up until that point and what came afterwards. It’s powerful, emotive and moving for me because I personally know the two people in the photo, I know what choices they made and the consequences of those choices they made would have not on just them but those they love close to them. It captures a spirit of togetherness, powerful sense of unity and an abounding amount of love.
Having gone travelling the previous 2 years before the photo was taken and finally setting up a new life in Sydney, Australia, they came back home for a few weeks and with them their daughter who was 10 months old whom some would be seeing for the first time.
