Summary: I wish he was still here. How can a girl grow up without a father? It will be hard, but time waits for no man, especially not me.
People die all the time, you never realize what it feels like until it happens to you. But even though he's dead, the world hasn't changed. I haven't changed much either. I still breathe, in and out, just as I've done for the past 14 years. I still wear my cousin Tine's old clothes with her drool on the collar. I still have a mom who loves art. But I guess one thing h changed, I have a new home now, in Mississippi.
Perry gave me a camera. A black Asahi Pentax camera. It's like a time capsule, you take a picture and that moment is frozen in time forever. Power can come from evidence.
Photos aren't just black and white, you also have to look for the shade of gray.
All you have to know is that a camera is like your eye. To focus, keep one eye closed while you're looking with the other. It brings everything closer... You can hide behind a camera.
You can't hide behind your camera forever.
