Explain your icon.
harry. i don’t need to say his surname because the whole world knows it. this is one of my favourite photos of him, the focus on the camera is exquisite and even though it’s in black and white i imagine it in colour. i still remember the time i saw his first audition. i sitting in my usual seat on the sofa, curled up and bored of the x factor, then harry came on and my heart began to beat a little faster. i watched him as he said his name was harry and i was immediately a little annoyed by the girls who appeared that clearly found him extremely attractive, on the tv as they were so much prettier than me and i thought, “i bet he’d like them over me.” then he started to sing and i was immediately happy, but not happy because my head told me to be happy from his singing, but from my heart and i got chills. he sang effortlessly, and even though he has more of a rugged voice now, it still had a tone to it that made me think of guitar playing at night in the back of a pickup truck that was parked on the beach. and it reminded me of the first time my dad played stevie wonder to me. so that is what this photo reminds me of. the start of my love for harry. because everything he wears, says, does, sings, watches and listens to is synchronised to me and my tastes.
