I have a thing for doing things repeatedly. Especially in my Instagram account. But up until recently that had to do only with the format of my posts.At the same time, I love everything about storytelling. I do believe that a picture is worth a thousand words, but all these words are not always enough.

You see I own a personal profile and most of my photos are taken with my smartphone. It’s not an account of a professional photographer neither of an influencer. Just my thoughts and the way I see things.

So I decided to add more to my description of each post. At first, there were just three chapters that completed a story. But then I realized that every moment, every post, is a unique chapter, a unique story. And now they all have the same form. The chapter’s title, three sentences that enhance my thoughts and a closure. You can either relate to my thought as it is or to isolated to parts of it. The thing is that I add a few more words to the thousand that you can imagine with every photo. And these words are really important to me and my feelings of every single moment that is described.

It has been a while since I had a specific pattern that I love. And that’s why I share it with all of you. Below you’ll see my first efforts and how they evolved to be my way of thinking.

Hope you like my way of storytelling.

Chapter 1

The sea like a siren is always calling me. I was just passing by for a walk when I heard her. She was there, calm and beautiful with a sound full of harmony. Enchanted by the sound, I went as near as I could to enjoy the peace. And maybe manage to take some back with me when I come back in the city.

Chapter 2

I couldn’t give in to the calling of the sea and I tried to leave. On my way back, I saw a leaf. It reminded me of fall. All these moments and photos with leaves like that one filling my Instagram wall. But there it was now, alone, left behind. And I thought I could give it one more moment of fame. Even now, it’s beautiful!

Chapter 3

I took a few more steps back. I was already in the dark but the island was still sunny. I realized why they say that at that time we have the perfect light for photos. It’s because before the sun goes, he would like to show us the magical beauty of our surroundings. Peace of mind is peace of everything.
