About the Book
Dreams should be limitless. Dreams are the hopes that fuel our souls, that give us that energy to jump out of bed each morning and do something different, that provide the genuine spirit that helps us smile to even the most distant of strangers in the street. Do we need to be diagnosed with a fatal disease to decided to actively live the last few moments of our lives?…. No, we just need to dream, and live out those dreams.
For me, I have a mind that reaches out over a thousand horizons. My head is always full of a million dreams, each one in a different direction, with a different purpose, triggering a different emotion. The thought of putting a limit on my dreams is like closing a door and throwing away the key.
The nearest I can describe the feeling, is like when reading a fabulous book. You know it is a special book because you have become familiar with the characters within, like they are members of your own family. You suddenly realise that you are on the last page. You know that finishing the last words on the page will bring that relationship with the characters to an end. Eventually you close the book. You feel satisfied that it was a great read but you also feel empty because that bond is no more. If you have dreams but those dreams are limited, what happens after you have achieved those dreams? What happens if you reach the end of the book of your dreams, and close it? Every day should hold dreams, every day should create memories, every day should be lived and enjoyed. I can't even begin to try to comprehend the day where I wake up in the morning and have no dreams.......
"The day I stop dreaming...
...is the day I stop living"
As I embark on the journey of realising my dreams and as I observe the world around me, my camera is never far away. I am always looking for an excuse to remove the lens cap and capture those moments, those locations, those expressions, those little things that often go unnoticed as we hurry about our busy lives.
This photobook has been created to bring together some of those moments to share with you. I don't expect everybody to see the same things that I do. The wonderful thing about photographs is that one person can see the same image as another, yet notice different things and feel very different emotions.
