'There comes a point in our lives when we have to say goodbye to childhood and venture out in the adult world. A world full of 'musts' 'shoulds' and 'responsibilities' and a startling lack of fun. With so much pressure to achieve and so little time to enjoy oneself it may seem that the childish joy of doing nothing is in danger of being lost forever.'

Thumbing through a book i was given in 2009 tonight, and came across that quote. It then goes on to say that youthful minds are never 'lost.' We may grow up and be stained by the seriousness of the adult world but you can find yourself again by resorting back to the essence of your childhood.
If the essence of my 'childhood' is taking photos, does that mean if i do this for the rest of my life, i will remain young at heart?
Those are my thoughts tonight. A few more photos to share...
Un unshared favourite of mine:
Old image i've posted before, but this represents childhood for me. Carefree Emily.
