Started this blog exactly 4 years ago and I still can’t believe it has already been that long. My baby is growing up! I was a very different person 4 years ago. And I’m happy tumblr became a huge part in becoming who I am as a person who likes to take photos. I’m so grateful for all the opportunities, all the experiences, and most importantly the friendships I have forged because of this blog.
Thank You for the amazing four years tumblr!

“Why do people have to be this lonely? What’s the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?” ―Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart

Dear Self, 

You are awesome. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s been a rough couple of months for you and your heart, but you’ll be fine. Just hang in there. Just don’t forget to smile. Don’t force yourself in to anything. Make sure to love yourself first before you love somebody else. I love you!

Ryann



You’re beautiful, but you’re empty. No one could die for you.



While I was cleaning my hard drive, I realized I have so many outtakes that never got to see the light of day. So I decided to breathe new life in to them with my little Outtake Project. They tell a far more interesting story than “that shot” you wanted to achieve. And to make it more honest and raw, I’m going to strip them with colors. So watch out for my little blog project. I’ll be posting them very soon. You have to go backwards to move forward.



This was back when I thought I had everything figured out. But life has a way of proving me wrong. With everything that’s been happening in my life, I’m thrilled with the person I’m becoming.

Something weird happened in China.

When someone takes my picture and they tell me to smile, I still think of you.

I may have had some work done while I was in Legoland Malaysia… Do I look beautiful now?

Wherein I am being a full-on tourist in Hong Kong finding my place in our vast universe. Trying to take in everything that my senses picked up. And I didn’t forget to smile.

It feels like forever since I either blogged or took self portraits, so today I corrected both. I just came back from my nine day trip all over Asia. I traveled to Hong Kong, Xi’an, Shanghai (transiting, but still counts lol), Singapore and Malaysia. I have to literally sift through at least a thousand photos and write a lot of stories to go a long with it. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to see the world like this. And I can’t wait to share them with you!

My entire September has been very sparse and dreary. I didn’t have anything personal that I want to share. Nothing significant that I want to remember. Just masterfully learning the art of getting by. I will definitely make up for my absence here, as I always do. I will have a lot of things to share very soon.
P.S. I have been posting a lot of things HERE, so you might want to follow that blog to, for the lack of a better term, get the Full Ryann Experience.

This is my face in different parts of New York City. There are photos from this blog post about a little photo project with my cousin last year. With everything that’s been happening lately, I thought I should post this again.

Just to keep the dream alive.
