It's the emotion, it's the moment.
Yeah, yeah. And it's for me in the future. Yeah. But like in terms of photography, it is an art form.
I think it's stillness is important because it's the stillness of a moment. It's never still. And you?
I kind of see it as similar to a photo - like with your memories, with your emotions, it's never tangible.
Like I can tell you, I love you, but I can't ever pass it to you, it's felt in many different ways. But it's similar to music. You can't really hold it. You can't really touch it. And it's a similar thing with photos. It's the closest I can ever get to potentially showcasing an emotion or presenting that.
But in turn, the thing that I really love is if I show you a photo of something, for me, there's an emotion that's attached to it. And it's more than I could ever say with words on how I feel about something.
But if you view it, you suddenly have your perspective of it and you feel completely differently to me, like we could never know what the same color of yellow is.
It's just as valid as the artist.
And it's so beautiful having that moment where you are both feeling something, but it's different, you're doing it together.
I feel like that's a really beautiful part that there's this collectiveness, even though we're both perceiving different things.
It's like meeting in the middle, then being like, I love this, I'm feeling something, we're doing it together, but you're doing it in your own way. And as am I.
Like seeing colors. I couldn't tell you what all of them are in an array array, but I saw them and so did you.
It's like art exists where communication ends.
How do you feel about sharing? Do you feel like, if you're by yourself, is there a moment of sadness that it's not shared?
When I was younger, I was really happy to enjoy those moments on my own. And there was a beauty in doing that on your own.
I think I have learnt that happiness is best shared. It doesn't take away from the moment that you had on your own, but there's something really beautiful about having it together.
There's some kind of sense of immortality to it that you live vicariously in these memories with these other people and you are always with them then too, you know?
So for me, it feels shared. But how about you? What do you think?
Well, it's interesting because I guess, I feel in a way sometimes that I'm the only one here in a weird way. And it's not like it's selfish, you know?
I've always thought the meaning of life is kind of other people and meeting other people and stuff like that. It was a hard reset to be travelling recently on my own. And experiencing some things on my own and being like, wow, it's just me in here.
And, you know, I was born on my own and I'll die on my own. And I would agree with you that those moments are internal or immortal, you know, when it's shared with others.
But just to do things on your own for yourself and experience, something is quite ethereal to see, something happens and not have a choice but to just share it on your own and it's quite humbling and quite settling.
And I think there's quite a bittersweet moment where it's like, Wow, there's no one else. So I had to really learn by myself as well to just take it in, and sometimes I just blink and I'll be like - there we go, I got it.
You know, I didn't get it, but I got it.
