Day 1: Some Day, Some Where

The minute – second – I saw what the first prompt was for this Photograph Challenge, I became uneasy.

It’s been several years since I’ve felt compelled to call any place that I’ve resided home.

To me, home symbolizes a place of peace and comfort. Somewhere you go to escape the demands of the world. A calming place to collect your senses – where you can freely be yourself and shut out the demands of the world for awhile.

Right now I live in a nice condo (with the exception of a roommate I will not miss come this May when the lease is up) in a quiet neighborhood, but I still can not see it as my home.

The song Home, by Zero 7 come to mind. There is this line just before the main verses that I resonate with completely.

Take me somewhere we can be alone
Make me somewhere I can call a home

While I was on the bus from work, I was playing that song on my mp3. Just before it ended, I looked outside the window I was next to and almost instinctively knew that I needed a shot of the sky.

In that moment I thought of how I seem to always be traveling alone – with no clear destination in mind – searching for a place where I can really feel is home to me.

Some day I hope to find that place.

 I have to ask: Has anyone felt this way as well?

Seeing one 'acceptable' troupe for fat black women like me was more than enough to entice me to step up and take a shot! ______________________________________________________________________________________________ After spending hours on stock pile sites and not finding the images of women that she wanted to see on her blog or book covers led K. McCoy to make more of her photography hobby. Besides shooting portraits, street and travel photography, K. McCoy would love to tap more into her creative skills and collaborate with cosplay artists as well as authors looking for their dream book covers.
