I love photography, I love the idea of saving that split second in time, knowing that it will never happen again.
In the old days that what I would answer when people asked me why I love photography and how I keeps finding new subjects in places I have visited hundreds if not thousands of times before.
Lets look at the Anemone one of the prettiest flower in the world, and there are so many of them every year that the possibilities are endless when it comes to taking a photo of them.
That's what I used to do going out an hour or two every day taking a few single shots of what ever I could find, just like the photo above. But I really never got satisfied something was missing, not with the challenge of taking the photo, or publishing it here and there on social media sites, people liked what they saw, plussed, liked, shared and commented you know the whole shebang.
But then one day I got invited to this new site called worldly, a place where people like me could tell a story, and share the entire experience on how and why I took this walk and photographed the Anemones.
As usual when I get invited to new websites I am a little hesitant, but a couple of weeks earlier I had visited A ecological farm, And I had actually taken a series of photos with a story in mind, but I had no where to post them other than my own blog. So it was a golden opportunity to give it a go.
And so I did uploaded the photos created my story read it over, and pressed the publish button, and then I was hooked. It was such a huge satisfaction for me, to share a set of photos that told the entire story instead of just sharing single shots, and receiving the plus, like, and comment that it comes with. Now don't get me wrong I still share those single photos without a story attached, and I still appreciate all the feedback you guys give me :-)
Now a days when I go out to photograph I always have a story in mind, I am constantly thinking and planning new exiting photo trips for me and Loki (My dog). This have really opened my world and I have found places that I most likely wouldn't have been if it wasn't for worldly.
Just yesterday I went to Værløse old Air force Base, a surreal place that just was stopped in time when the Air force moved to new locations.
Thank you for reading trough, and I hope you got curious, enough to visit and give worldly a go. I can't promise you that it is something for you, but I can promise you that the first time you post a entire story you will feel the same sort of excitement that you had the first time you received positive feedback you one of your published photos.
Oh all the photos used in this post links directly to one of my experiences on worldly.
