I don’t publish nearly as many of this column as I could, and there are many reasons; but one is that, as I say above, the photos I talk about here are selected. There needs to be something about the shot that moves me in some way to write it up here, some feeling or emotion or simply a quality that catches my attention hard enough to log in to WordPress and do the work.
This photo fits that bill, though I wasn’t the discoverer. Cajsa Lilliehook twigged me onto it, with the latest trend in the “publishing empire” she runs centered on her blog, It’s Only Fashion. Both Cajsa and Gidge Uriza publish their own periodic columns of a fast five links to items that catch their attention, and this photo, by Larcoco Mathy, was in today’s piece by Cajsa. You truly get the sense of someone setting out on a journey to learn more about herself, to accomplish something for the benefit of herself or the world around her.
