If I could go back and relive the last few years of my life, I would relive each moment in exactly the same way. This simple realization emerged from deep internal reflection. Some people exercise or practice yoga, others meditate; I engage in walking meditation practice – I put on headphones with a loud music and go on long walks. During my most recent walks, I have entered around emotional reflections of a breakup with the person I felt I was going to spend my life with began to surface. As most people I wondered if there were things I could of done differently, was it my fault? what did I do wrong? One day while out reflecting, a spark of inspiration was triggered and I began to capture moments of reflection through photo. I’ve read somewhere that with the technology of today anyone can take a pictures, but it’s the emotions behind them that make it into a photo. These are my photos #reflections.

At times I take pictures that are a reflection of what is going on in my life. For the last few months I’ve been looking back on my current situation, decisions I’ve made, if they were right or wrong. As a projection of these emotions I’ve taken many pictures of reflections which have turned out better then expected. I am my art work, my art work represents where I am in life.
I love Photography and have since I was very young. I’ve made photos here and there as a hobby, but now I feel ready to take it to the next level. My first goal was to take photos every day, so far so good. Here are a few of them.
I’ve loved photography since very young, growing up in the Dominican Republic it was the only way for me to remember what my sister and mother looked liked since they had moved to New York City when I was very little. Then growing up in The Bronx, NY I always loved to see pictures from the early 20th century. I love the idea of freezing a moment in time just the way it was. This is my goal each time I take a photo. For more about my photography and to support my art please visit https://www.patreon.com/leonidas
Here are a few of the photos that will be up on Artsicle.com, where you can rent or buy my work. For more you can visit my page at http://open.artsicle.com/Leonidas-Bratini or just keep up with this blog I will post updates here from time to time. Not sure yet what type of prints I should do. any ideas? I am thinking of Canvas, Metal Prints or your every day photo paper in a gorgeous frame?
