I am a really sensitive person. Yes, I said it. This is a post about my feelings and how hard it is for me…to not be that boy who was training for competitions 6 days a week. I remember how I started to practice gymnastics and I was thinking that it is forever…i will compete and train till the end of my days. I wasn’t thinking about the moment when I’ll do something else and competition emotions will be forgotten. I relived some of my childhood memories when traveled to Bucharest for a photography workshop. I decided to visit one of my friends who is a coach at Steaua gymnastics center. I was lucky that I have the camera with me. From the moment I entered the room, I felt the atmosphere that lives in a gymnastic gym. I photographed the pain, the fear, the discipline that characterize gymnastics. I felt everything through me…cause once I was just like them. A young kid who was working hard to be the best.
The last picture can look like a bragging but I think everyone should be proud about their achievements. Behind this picture is not photoshop but are years of hard work.
Live your dream, stay focused.
