HEY, I'M EVÓRA!
ROAD TRIP -part.I
The road is always there, you just have to decide when to take it .
The best part of going on a road trip? Finally getting out of the boredom of daily life – leaving the comfort and dullness of familiarity. When you take off on a new adventure excitement rises from the anticipation of seeing and experiencing something new. Perhaps you have only a final destination in mind, leaving everything else in between to happenstance.
I wait for the moments that bring clarity to my mind. Every time I stumble upon unseen scenery, the visual treat catches me unaware in the first moments. There is a sense of mystery and nerves take over my senses in the beginning; I take my time to observe and get used to the view in front of my eyes. As soon as my mind decides to accept what it sees, quickly everything turns to stillness. This is the moment that I am waiting for – when you are in a completely relaxed state of mind. Only then can you venture further inside; taking steps into the scene and getting closer and closer.
During my travels, planning is unnecessary. Go where you want to go, take off whenever you feel like it, and change your plan at the last minute according to your own whims. To plan is just to make a desperate effort. With spontaneity you escape from our structured and organized society, enjoying the random happenings along the way.
If you do not plan, then you are never lost. With this, you will find that only when you are authentically free, with time slowing down, then you are able to realize the beauty of uncertainty. When you reach this uncluttered state of mind, many things will appear to you anew and you will be able to travel to the one that inspires you to take the photograph you have been yearning for.
