My brain tells me that God is near. In my head, I am certain that the Lord has a plan for me and my life, and that He has not left me to fend for myself. My mind accepts these as truths, yet my heart refuses to believe them. Since when have I become so numb? My Father did not design me to feel disconnected from Him. It is time for a change of heart.

Spooky and Surreal Black & White Landscapes by Matt Pringle
Location: Stirling, Scotland.
Photographing Since: 2008
Cameras: Kiev 60, Minolta Autocord, Holga 120N, Holga Pinhole.
Fav films: Ilford HP5+, Kodak Tri-X.
Matt on why he shoots film:
"The vast majority of my photography is focused on black and white cityscapes or seascapes. I predominantly shoot on medium format film. My reasoning for shooting on film are twofold. Firstly, there is the purely aesthetic quality of shooting medium format film. I find the tones and grain of film to be very complimentary to the style of photography I aim to produce. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, is the slower, methodical pace of medium format photography. I think I needed that time and space in order for my photography to evolve and develop.”
Matt on his black and white work:
"The images I create are very personal to me, and most probably say more about me as a person, and in a more articulate way, than I could ever express in words. I value feeling and emotion in my work above all else and I hope this comes across in the images I create. Photography is a great escape for me and I often try to capture feelings of peacefulness and solitude in my work. The empty streets, the heavy fog, the quietness of the early morning: it’s a world which I’m very happy to inhabit - far removed from the realities of modern day life.”

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past few weeks T.T But there is a new post, so please check it out!
There are a few things I keep forgetting to bring from home: card stock paper, winter jacket, scarves, slr camera.
I am thankful for the people around me who challenge me in ways that force me to act out of my comfort zone. I feel so blessed because I know that it is God working in me through these people. It encourages and motivates me to be a similar kind of vessel to others.
Feeling so, so blessed. Things have been hard lately, with med schools being silent on admissions decisions, and planning for alternatives, and thinking of all the uncertainties of the near future, but… I don’t know. I’ve been studying all week while trying to ward off this cold and juggling extracurriculars. Today of all days, I am reminded of the blessings in my life. So humbled. A daily habit in the making.
