The Last Day

Year Taken: 2010

We have been friends since I was 14. It was a Sunday and we went for a goodbye coffee before I moved to Edinburgh. I like the object of the photograph and thought it would be nice to have a memory of them, this was taken for that purpose - for me to take on my journey to Scotland. For me this is a photo of my family, this is what I left behind and I would say this is one of the most difficult things about starting over again in a new place.
