Life is not only very unpredictable, but it’s also very fragile and these last photographs prove just that.
When it comes to living on your own, you never realize how difficult things may turn out to be in the end. And that’s the beauty or shall we say programming of this world. In the same way, life is very fragile and when people tell you that it alters in the blink of a second, they aren’t lying.
You never know where you end up, how you end up, or at what point life gives you access to leave this world. But one thing is for sure. You can never take it for granted. And that’s because the moment you do, that’s when it all begins to alter in a fraction of a second.
