Longing

6/21/2015 Italy



"For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return." -- Leonardo Da Vinci

It hasn't been a year yet and I still catch my mind drifting off to my school trip to Italy last October. I was just thinking about the last time I felt carefree and light – and colourful Italy popped up in the back of my mind immediately. My laptop was already on, iTunes playing Jack Johnson and Milky Chance, and I clicked my way through folders and photographs until I could view a gallery of all the images I took during my trip. Stunning ones, and also completely silly ones.



Photography is a beautiful thing. Solely because photographs do not only capture moments but whole atmospheres. I feel a hint of nostalgia whenever I think of a place I wish to be in, a place I genuinely want to go back to (and can't). And sometimes I wonder which is worse: missing a person or a place.



Summer is just around the corner, awaiting me with wide, promising arms. Yesterday I spent a whole day in another city, just shopping with my mum and sister. Content as I am, I cannot wait to show off my new clothes. It's been raining this whole week but patience is key. Happy times are coming! (Promise.)



Have you guys ever been to Italy yet? If you'd like to see more of these photographs, view my portfolio here.

From the girl with the ever raging wanderlust,
Arden.
