I first discovered the word “wanderlust” as a freshman in high school, and since then, I’ve had opportunities to travel and witness beauty all around the world–remembered in the photos I used for my compilation. Rifling through old photos I hadn’t put up on my walls, I was drawn to the color blue of the waters and skies. I felt calm and joyful, because the skies and the oceans that I captured in these photos were all from different locations I can call “home.” I wanted to capture my feeling of rest and happiness by representing the shoreline (where my hometown is).
