The darker side of regrets.
the field caught fire and burned for what seemed like hours. i watched in fear, awe, and terror as the flames surrounded me. irregardless, my only thoughts were focused on how i could turn the situation into a photograph, something i could post to instagram, to get attention, to get likes, to be superficial. the smoke began to fill my lungs as i continued to hope for a better shot at the field that burned around me, not one thought was given as to how i would get out, if i could get out, and what would happen to me. i craved to get something that would interest people, something that would make them stop and pay attention, to me, to my work, to my effort and dedication. and i did, it was one of my more popular posts. i gave several prints of it out to people who really loved it. but what you see in regrets is not what i saw through my eyes. you didn’t feel the adrenaline i felt, the fear, the difficulty i had in breath. only i felt that. only i will know exactly what it was like behind the camera. this edit of regrets is my attempt to offer you a better perspective as to what my eyes saw as i feared for my safety and became powerless to leave, all in the name of superficiality. never again will i allow that to happen. that is what i regret. that is the dark side of regrets.
