Steve McCurry is an American photographer who has worked in photojournalism and editorial. For more than thirty years now Steve McCurry has been focusing on contemporary photography. One of his most famous Photographs known as “Afghan Girl.”
He began with just freelance work while working in his local newspaper, and after many years with that, that is when he took his first out of many trip to india. Through the lens of his camera he captures color and the essences of human struggle and joy. I tried to imitate some of the pictures he had taken that really watched my eye. This journey to do it was a struggle, but it was on worth going through, because it made me realize that this may be something I would like to do one day.

Your hands explored, and your lips came close.
Told me to keep it a secret and it was fine,
so i trusted you because i believed you.
Only to find out later that it wasn’t fine,
but now you were free and you were right.
I fought for what was right, and lost.
Years. Years passed.
And my heart still races with tears fighting to escape,
from the slight thought of you coming near me again.
You haunt my memories like the monsters in my nightmares,
creeping in my mind, as i fight to keep you out.
As i grow up i realize your life is fine,
and mine is not.
You are getting married,
and i’m just beginning.
You are comfortable with someone,
when i can’t even let a boy come near me without shaking.
You messed me up inside,
And that is why a part of me always wants to cry and hide.
This spring break I traveled over seas, across the world, by myself. Now don’t get me wrong, i have travelled alone before but not to another country. And i have traveled over seas but not alone. This time was all alone with some of my closest friends and my best friend. We went on this trip to make memories, but i we ended up getting more than we expected. We made new friends and experienced: fear, sickness, and thrill as we wandered through the city in London. So in the images are all of me as you see how i surrounded myself with friends and acted like my foolish self around the people in England.
The fear came from the the people we encountered around England. As my friends and i were visiting one of the Cathedral a creepy man came up to us with his camera and began to talk to us about the world ending. Then we tried to go on a adventure and encountered another russian man that didn’t give us an easy time. To say the least the people we came across taught us not to speak to strangers. Although my mother had told me to talk to some. In the middle of the trip though a group of kids got sick. I was one of the chosen ones. But i’m glad with the chaperones that went, with all that was going on they still stuck by us but still kept the energy up. My friends would check on me and still make me smile as i was basically dying.
Other than those miniature events, i made sure that each day i had a different outfit to match the city. And i made new friends that i wasn’t expecting like a dog i met in the Cathedral, or my buddy John, the tour guide. The day we left was sad but i’m glad i had the chance to have this experience. And hopefully i’ll be back soon.
Just two words that are meant to make your day.
Two words that people that don’t even know you make you feel special.
Two words you hear come from the mouths of strangers, but not the ones you love.
A day you feel special for being alive.
A day that people give you attention because you were born that day.
But why shouldn’t you feel special everyday.
Just another day that you exist on this earth.
Another year you got to hear the words,
This is an update on how the friendship part of my life is going. This year was my first year at MLEC and the first week was hell. I honestly thought that I would never have a true friend in this school. But I came to experience what true fireship is. I’ve also experienced when you have to drop certain people and move on either for the better or the worst. I’ve also had the chance to branch out more to people i would never expect to hang out with or do new things with. And this may sound shady because I don’t wanna name people or events, but as someone reads this and see’s the pictures below, they just know that I finally found people in this school that I can honestly call true friend. Even best friends.
We seem to forget at times of what are parents do for us. but if you zoom in and see all the little things that you wouldn’t see in a regular basis. My mom is a hard working women and although she is tired or stressed she is always asking care of me or even cooking. So sometimes take a closer look to really understand them better because the features and eyes can tell you everything.
She goes quietly around town looking beautiful as ever. She has a side of her that only some people can peek through and see a glimpse of. But once you’ve seen that side of her, you’ll see that even the side where she hides more secrets than she can handle i just another part of her that makes her just as memorizing.
Social media has become a great thing in the 21st century, if you use it in a positive way though. Now and days there are different application for whatever you need. To find your lost pet, advertise your talent or an advertisement, college or if you need money for something, literally anything. In this video that my partner and i created is to show one way that social media can be positive and beneficial now.
