How do we experience our world?

Tamar Willoughby, 24

My photo captures the awe of a young couple visiting Edinburgh for the first time, experiencing the beauty of it with fresh eyes. So often when we live in a place we become numb to the magic of it. Seeing Edinburgh through the eyes of this couple, happy in love and excited about exploring this historic a and beautiful city, we are reminded of how much gratitude and contentment with our current circumstances can transform the way we experience our world and our immediate surroundings. Seeing our home through the wide, amazed eyes of a tourist shakes you up and lifts the film of monotony and familiarity that has slowly built up. We remember the appreciate the beauty and the brilliance of the city that we call home.
