"Just like every other kid, I had a weird childhood. Nothing extraordinary. My dad left us, then my sister escaped. Both were my best friends, actually. And both were looking for a better life. At some point with new things coming into my life, I had to grow up a bit faster. And while my both best friends were looking for that better life, and my mom was working two shifts, I was looking at the window and waiting for them to come back. Everyday I was looking at that window. And even though nothing was about to happen, I still loved that window. Window of hopes and expectation.
There is still that child in me. The child who left that window of hopes open." Anna Jugovaya
7 Blocks of Photography is highly recommended. I spend a lot of time in the outdoors and this course has taught me to think like a photographer, which of course helps my photography greatly, but also taught me how to "see" and this point is useful in my outdoor activities such as hiking and backpacking, appreciating the outdoors more than ever.
