Best thing about my time in Indonesia? Getting out of my comfort zone 🙊
“What if I don’t get any photos I like?, “What if I have nothing to show here?” - just a couple of examples of questions I heard at the back of my head before the trip. Cause… let’s face it: tropical landscapes or portraits aren’t something I normally post here.
I was bored out of my mind and uninspired with photographing London, so I thought that letting myself be exposed to an entirely unfamiliar world would help me overcome the creative block.
And it has. It’s been the best decision. Being in Indonesia felt so healing, so refreshing - from the moment I had landed.
Initially, I was a bit concerned about sharing some photos from the trip with you - everything about Indonesia is completely different to what I’m used to photograph and what you’re used to see on my feed. But that’s what made this trip so good, so inspiring and so exciting…
…and some of the most wonderful people - all talented, hardworking and passionate yet laid back, chilled out, funny, crazy and positive. Our time together was a much needed reminder about how little social media actually matters when we are busy travelling in a new country, with newly met, like-minded people, doing things we all love. Sometimes trying to get the best photo for Instagram and keeping up with social media madness makes you forget to live the moment and you don’t experience things the way you should and normally do when travelling. I’m so incredibly glad it didn’t happen to (most of, I think?) us and that we didn’t get involved in the crazy “I won’t take a photo cause it wouldn’t work on Instagram anyway” talk 🙈
Thank you, all of you, who has sticked around and followed my trip - it means a world ❤️
