Assignment: My Addictions: Your challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘My Addiction’. For me there is no doubt what I’ll be photographing – a rich creamy latte – coffee is my addiction. What is yours? Food, a person, your favourite gadget or camera or???
I love this photograph because it encapsulates the many things I am addicted to. I’m addicted to movement. I am in perpetual motion, and I love photographs that show a dynamic energy. I am addicted to the sweetness between a couple… particularly between me and mine. The willingness to walk hand in hand across the street and throughout life is a precious thing. I am addicted to looking for that beauty in other couples. I am addicted to walking. As a young girl, if I wanted to go anywhere, I walked there; and that fostered a life-long love for walking. There is one addiction that is not obvious in this image, yet, I would be remiss if I did not somehow acknowledge it: iced, tall, soy, no whip mocha from Starbucks…. but maybe that is where this couple was walking to. I’m pretty sure that is where I went just after taking this shot.
