Reimagine your life. Three words that make some shudder with anxiety and others start to smile. And as it turns out, this assignment proved to be both difficult and enjoyable. Thanks to everyone who submitted, but a special thanks to those of you who wrote what the photo meant to you in your caption. Particularly for this story, it was important to hear from the photographer’s directly on why they submitted that particular photo for this specific assignment. Those are the photos that spoke to me, that made me feel.
There were several main themes that surfaced while I was editing the submissions. Follow your dreams. Be inspired and creative. Enjoy your freedom. We are all connected—humans, animals and the natural world need each other. Keep learning. And let your imagination go!
