Flares

This photo represents peace. It is important to stop and look out into the world. It is hard to take a time out in our hectic lives, but if you manage to practice thinking and reflecting on life. I captured this picture on a drive through Fiesole, Italy during the golden hour. In the background we can see the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore located in the centre of Florence, Italy. Everytime I look at this photo I think of the vast world we live in, and how lucky I have been to see so much of it at such a young age.
