Goodbye to 2017

This was a decent year for me, I progessed somewhat. However, it is not time for reflection. I am choosing to put 2017 behind me and focus on changing for the better and progessing in my professional and personal life. I watched a video about a 109 year old WWII veteran who inspired me to further live how I like, be kind to others and to myself, to do things for myself, and to keep love by my side. I will be devoted 100% to developing my craft everyday while try spreading myself thin. I will master my craft, my mind, and my body. I am more focused than I have ever been and I believe I will continue this while marching into 2018.

This photo repersents the darkness that has surrounded me this year and how empty I have been despite the small specks of light present on the tables and the floor. However, I can now see that there is a positive way out and I will everything in my power to light up my world and live happily for the rest of my life even whe I struggle. I will continue to love myself and my craft as well as my family and others. I will greet 2018 with a smile.

Thank you for following and have a happy news year,

David

P.S. Will post once every day in 2018 for 365 days straight.

Holiday

Enjoy yourself and make sure to take care of your health. Live free and strong. Took these photos before christmas while I was waiting for someone to finish shopping. The photos look chaotic on purpose, to repersent the hectic time known as the holidays. I love the reflective floors of this store. Anyway, I’m working hard to express myself and to improve myself every single day.

Merry Christmas & happy new year,

David

Exploring the old

I went back to old subjects to recapture them. This building happens to be one of them and I am proud of he way that this photo turned out. I went back at an earlier time when no one was around to capture it without any human elements. I like how it is not perfect, especially with careful it’s wet sign visibe through the window. I enjoy taking photos of this entrance, I only wish it had a better surrounding. I’m glad that I went on a day that featured a nice sky, which leads to a great reflection. Clear skies are wanting for me:).

Have a great day/night and stay warm,

David

Long journey

Went on an 8+ mile walk and had a lot of time to think and take photos. I’ve made some decisions in my life which will help me finally progress in a positive manner. I am acting on what I want to do and what I don’t want to do at the moment but should do. I’m consuming less media and allowing myself to be creative in various mediums.

This photo repersents the inside of my mind while I overthink. However, it feels like the light will start to shine through at any moment. I am moving forward through my fear and allowing myself to see the light. Actions are louder than words, I’m holding myself accountable to achieve whatever I want to achieve. Fear is self made and I am taking every step to combat it. For now, shine through the darkness my friends.

One step at a time,

David

Wandering

Forgetting the rules of photography to further the pursuit of my passion. I am doing things the way I want to without holding myself back. Been wondering a lot and am totally willing to get lost. I was inspired by a Bryan Cranston video, in which he states that we should be willing to get lost as we truly uncover new things.

Rather than label myself with various titles, I consider myself an explorer. Someone who ventures and captures the world as they see it or sometimes just explore without a camera but come back to capture it. I even provide photos for google maps when I take a photo of somewhere that showcases the subject at hand. Just wait there will be many more adventures and photos to come.

These photos repersent the paths I take when I walk. These are just a few subjects that I awalys see and others ignore. I capture these things and showcase their beauty.

Nothing is truly worthless,

David

Nature of self

It’s no surprise that I’ve been thinking deeply a lot since I started to walk more an more. I start to question things and have been diving into philosophy when I am not taking photos or listening to J.Fla. I have come to question myself as well, I learned more about myself the more I spen time without the distractions of television/Youtube.

I am responsible for everything, the reason I don’t write is because I don’t put pen to paper. I don’t take the time to upload as I chase after perfection or my percieved notion of it. I’ve come to stop that at this very moment as I come to the realization, I do have a problem. I’m the problem! I feel stronger by admiting it as if I am taking a baby step towards the sky. Myself has become clearer and with much action/practice I can truly become the man I am suppose to be. These photos reflect a new way of thought as each one repersents a new day that is shrouded by unexpected events. But if I am able to see through the darkness of self I can truly guide myself to the place I truly desire.

Do your own thing and live free,

David

One more track

Enjoying life on a beautiful day, took this shot while the light rail was stopped. I enjoyed experimenting with capturing the light rail as it was harder than I thought it would be.

Challenge yourself and have fun,

David

Looking down as I explore

I’ve been taking a lot of nature photos and exploring different angles. I was taught early on to not do that so much but I have to do things my own way. I am not the biggest fan of sticking to the rules/principles. I would rather approach photography like how Jack Sparrow treats the “rules for pirates” as mere guidelines. As the year comes to an end, my thoughts have been deeper and I find myself questioning things. These photos repersent the darker things I am thinking about but the flowers respersent the light that shines despite the background that surrounds it. I am staying positive and looking through the dark spots to find the light.

Will be updating everyday now. Stay tuned and have a good day/night,

David
