I am a self proclaimed chicken when it comes to heights and being away from the ground. Every moment spent in the air makes me wish for the ground even more. When on planes I delude myself into thinking that I need to devote my brain power into tasks such as peskily asking for more water, worrying if I should brush my teeth (let's be real after six hours nothing is that fresh), wondering if the in flight entertainment will be worth it. The usual in cabin regrets and endless stream of thought activities.
Balconies and rooftop type situations make me think of longing. Not for the ground but of something more. Moments that seem enchanted. The mood is right, with conversations chiming all around. I think of dusk, dawn and how endings creep up on you slowly without much warning until the sun has waned out of sight.
Of course this was a little different. After two years I finally found this balcony in isolation, with throngs of people below everything it seemed that the moment was more perfect than anything I could have imagined. I had anxiously made plans to shoot here with Na Eun a few weeks ago, however schedules never seemed to align, there was never an outfit I felt was worthy of the location in mind. But at last - kismet.
