Celebration of Day to Night

architecture photography, sky

As I got of the car, I noticed my surroundings. The restaurant is surrounded by trees and empty fields besides a newly built apartment complex. The colors were fresh but I chose to ignore them as they didn’t shine as the day dies. 

I took a shot from a lower angle of a building and a tree. I hoped to capture the change of night and day through nature and architecture. I love dark images thus the decision to turn the shot into a black and white one. 

I didn’t capture much that day but I caught the shot that I wanted. You have to celebrate the little things sometimes. 

Stay safe and have fun,

David

Love..What it’s all about

street photography

To me the key of life is love. We must love what we do, who we are with, and who we are. If this is done properly you will create happiness. You will have the life you might not have wanted but the one you found. It all starts with love. You must love yourself or no one else will. You must love what you do or you will sink been in a personal hell could a 9 to 5. 

My desire is to not drown in a sea of cubicles. I must be creative to live or it’s not a life I want. I crave freedom like the birds soaring above us. I always stood out and was always praised for my creativity and my ability to put effort in when my heart was into the task. 

This is really difficult but its what I must to do to truly be alive. I am having a character building time and trying to pull myself up of all the hate and from cold grip of the darkness that always finds it way back to me. I’m doing my best to replace the hate with love it doesn’t always work but I’m not giving up. 

On a bike ride I caught this ad it appeared to be an uncompleted heart. It was what I needed at the time and took photos from different angles. I instantly knew the title would be about love. 

I’m living the change I want and becoming the man I truly am. 

Go with love,

David

Tomorrow

street photography

Was exploring downtown Sacramento wih my family. Saw this couple and decided to capture them in the sour of the moment. They were kind, our paths crossed a few times. I caught this around 7pm with the light fading I decided to tone it down by making it black and white. it also shows we don’t know where this couple will be tomorrow or the years to come. Thus the heavy shadows really add to that factor. 

Be more consistent,

David

Light in Your Life

We all need a little light in our life or we will forever succumb to the beautifully cold darkness. Some have more than others but that’s fine. It’s all about taking it one step at a time. You are not lost you may not see it but I’m sure there is a bit of light in your life. Sometimes it is right under our noses because we are looking too hard. 

What was lost can be found. Remember that.

I was just waiting at my grandmother’s house and decided to shoot the interior. The room is always dark thanks to the dark red color walls. I love it, it’s perfect for relaxing and my type of photography. I love blending light and dark together. 

Be consistent and smile,

David

Life as it is

architecture photography, street photography

I don’t live in a big city nor do I live near downtown. So I grew up taking photos of trees, machines, animals, etc. It’s what was available to me as a child. I have evolved, I know take photos of people, nature, machines, buildings, objects, etc. I am much better than when I was a child but back then I was free from self doubt. Which is something we take for granted at that age. I think about my drive back then and hope to build something similar to it so I can evolve even more as an artist, photographer and most importantly as a man. 

On a rainy I traveled with my family to get groceries. I caught this in-between wiping my phone dry and walk-in joyfully under raindrops. I love the darkness present it helps bring out the light of the shot. Thanks to the rain there is a reflection of the darker subjects in the shot. With the reflection it gives the main building a sense of completeness. 

I love the rain,

David

Dark Times

street photography

We all face dark times. It is during these dark times that we truly shine or burn out. Happy moments may be challenging but they are nothing compared to the darkness of life. 

I’m in a dark period that seems like an era. Been here so long I wonder if I placed it upon myself. I realized my passions recently but apart of me already knew about them. Self doubt runs wild but I’m shooting it down with positive thinking. It’s a struggle but I’m so looking forward to the journey to step into the light per se. 

I’m facing my dark times I’m scared and nervous but I’m not giving up. I want my dream life and I want to follow my passions to the very end. Never going to stop until I drop dead. 

This photo was taken near a river in downtown Sacramento. The woman was taking selfies and wasting quality daylight on that task. Everyone has their own habits. I made the photo dark as it looks better and I feel happier with it. 

Face your dark times head on,

David

In the End: Life is about love and choices

nature

I believe life is about love. Yes, I’m a romantic yet I’m not just talking about having a partner. We have many lives in life that defines ourselves. We love some kind of music, some kind of actress or actor, we love nature, we love some activity, we love the quiet or loud moments, etc. We need more love in this world. I was once consumed by hate and sadness in the form of a coldness that would sweep over my body. I lost apart of myself to it, I was a shell of a human. It was painful to not feel anything. I came to the realization it’s okay to love. I built myself up to be more of myself and to be a stronger version of myself. I accepted that I was a romantic and other things. 
It’s fully okay to be who you are, you will feel truly alive when you do. I hope you might the right choices and the petals of your flower dont fall soon. 

Have you made any choices that make you feel proud today,

David
