For the latest The Daily Post Photo Challenge, “Motion”, I’m going with a #FlashbackFriday. When I saw that motion was this week’s photo challenge, as soon as I started to think of what past pictures I had that could work, I immediately thought of this picture of me from way back in 2007.
During my spring break in 2007, I went to England to visit my friend who was studying abroad. I went with 2 girl friends…well, technically 5 other girls, but that’s a long story. We booked a day trip that took us to multiple places such as Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge. I think this jumping picture of me at Stonehenge is a great example of motion.
In The Daily Post’s post about this challenge, Jen Hooks wrote, “Capturing motion is a beautiful way to convey a story in a photograph”. This trip was so memorable, a lot of fun, and packed with so much within a week. Not only packed with sightseeing and fun outings, but also things like breaking up our group of 6 and deciding it was better to go our separate ways for the remaining 6 days of our trip, meeting new people, finding our way not just around London, but also on a day trip to Paris, having a fever of course on the day I went to Paris, and much more. I’m not really in touch with the girls I went on this trip with anymore, but thinking back to this trip still brings a smile to my face. So going back to the quote, I think it’s definitely true. I look at this photograph and all these memories come back to me and it’s like I’m reliving the moment and all the little moments that came before and after it.
