Wanderlust. It defined my young adulthood and there is still a deep longing in my heart to travel the world. I love this editorial. The model is portrayed as a lone traveler which reminds me of some of my own journeys overseas. The stunning blue sky as the central focus of colour draws me into a reverie of when I would look up at the sky, feeling overwhelmed by how the different tint of it was a reminder that I was in the opposite hemisphere from my loved ones.

I also love how the model's jewelry does not change throughout the shoot. When I was traveling, I always wore the same jewelry. There was security in wearing one ring, given to me my parents, to remind me of home. And then once home, the ring reminded me of my adventures abroad.

While traveling alone had its' romanticism, I would much rather explore the world in the company of my family. Even if that now includes a toddler. After all what is an adventure if you have no one to share it with?

  1. Love the header photo.

    My wanderlust is kicking in again, sigh. I just want to quit life and join a sailing crew for a year or something.
