Ten years have passed since I posted my first photo on this photoblog. I remember I was very excited about starting a new project, back then I was living in Japan, studying a master course on sustainable architecture design with the Japanese architect Kazuhiro Kojima. The initial idea of this photoblog was to share photos of the interesting moments and scenes during my time living in Japan to my family and friends. As days passed by, the initial idea slowly evolved into a commitment to post a photo everyday (as long as I was able to keep the rhythm), driven by the desire to develop my vision and photographical skills. After 10 years a lot of things have changed in my life, personally and professionally (important people in my life are no longer in our plane of existence), but the main idea of this photoblog hasn't changed, a space completely dedicated to photography and to the sharpening of my vision. With the passing of the years, this photoblog has grown into a personal life project that has helped me to grow and evolve as a human being. Ten years feel like a long time by the numbers, a lot of accumulated experiences and feelings, but at the same time there's the exciting feeling of so much to discover and explore about life. This is my 1500th post on the Parallax project, what lies ahead is unknown to me, but I will continue to honor the teachings of the fantastic human beings I've met in the journey of life.
