This picture was taken in October of 2016 while I was wandering the streets of Kyoto, Japan. It was about 3pm and kids were walking home from school. A little girl happened to run into the frame, as I was taking a photo of the street.
I knew this photo was going to be something special right when I saw it in my camera roll. On the ground is the word '止まれ' which means 'stop'. I loved the juxtaposition of these characters on the ground with the girl running at full speed. It made me think about the innocence of a child carelessly disregarding the rules of society.
I decided to take this image and add the words '止まらない' which means 'don’t stop' or 'unstoppable' because I believe that's the way we should all be living life. This photo is a reminder for me to approach life every day with that same energy and attitude. When we put our heart into whatever we do, we are all unstoppable.
