Grainin’ Greece

Hello, world.

In the midst of sorting out all my photographs and editing new ones here and there I have re-discovered my film photos from Santorini and Athens.

I have shared these images with my people on social media, but never on this platform. As always, some are better than others but I think they do capture the moments.

Greece was the second country Kyla and I went to on our “Europe” trip circa Summer 2016 and we basically spent the 24h of our days together. Personally I enjoyed Athens a lot more because it provided a variety of things to see, do and appreciate whereas Santorini, although beautiful, became a routine and we like spontaneity.

Nevertheless, I’m sure you’ve seen multiple photographs of the blue waters and white architecture that the world associates with the greek islands, but here’s my little take on it.

Enjoy.

Something a lil different: Here are some shots of me by Kyla, my personal photographer and best friend.

“Love is love is love is-”

You guessed it, love.

One of the most important messages that I try to remind myself is this “Your heart doesn’t care who you love but how you love.”

Pink dot, from my understanding, is an event in Singapore where people within the LGBTQ community and their straight allies can showcase their conviction for a Singapore that is diverse, inclusive and supports the freedom to love.

Being bisexual myself, I can honestly say it’s been a ride. Quite an easy one, in comparison to a lot of my friends, but I’ve still yet to come out to my parents. (Although I honestly think it wouldn’t make a difference – well I hope so, at least.)

I’m technically coming out to the internet right now and although most of my friends and some of my family know that I like girls and boys, I’m feeling rather special; as if this online coming out of the closet moment makes my sexuality official.

Even though we all know it doesn’t work that way.

But…this isn’t about me. This is about all the individuals who have had the courage to accept themselves for who they are and are sharing it with the world. The ones that embrace their sexuality and flaunt it with the confidence that they finally possess. The ones that don’t have to hide from anyone anymore.

So enjoy the happiness and love that I captured on this beautiful day – and remember: love is love is love is love.
