D59 – Solid

IMG_20180225_125124-01.jpegGot to have a solid foundation before you out anything on top of it. I was exploring the areas around my stomping grounds and was thinking of concepts. I discovered how the shadows were hitting the cinder blocks and captured it from a different angle. I like how harsh the shadows are and the details in the blocks as they show you have you have to be tough to lay down the foundation you need. You just have to uncover what’s underneath the shadows to know where to build.

I am loving editing and photography more each time I go out and simply do those two things. I am working on my “10, 000” hours in a way. Not just with photography but with other ventures that I love while I work on my strengths and weaknesses.

Foundations,

David

D 58 – Change

IMG_20180219_100438-01.jpegChoosing what is important and what isn’t important in the long run. Giving up what isn’t important is challenging, however, it’s worth it if I want to be a better creator and a better man. One thing I’m giving up is naps unless absolutely necessary and giving up certain YouTube channels and focusing on finding my passion. Instead of doing these things I will focus on acting and gather experience to improve in every category.

I am falling in love with the process as it is thought-provoking. Although, when done right you don’t think at all when you are working hard. In the past, overthinking has been a weakness of mine. I’m working on it and I know it can’t be fixed right away but I’m improving every single day.

I love these flowers and how they look without editing. They are beautiful as they bask in the sun on a nice day. Basically, enjoy the simple moments and the simple beauty while it lasts.

 

D57 – Getting There

IMG_20180223_101649-01.jpeg My path seems to be clear but at the same time I can’t see it until I walk further ahead. It’s challenging but it must be done to truly become the best version of myself. Still trying to find my uniform but not letting anything stop me from walking forward.

This photo was taken on a 5 mile walk I took. I was exploring and found the type of shot I wanted to take. It’s as simple as that.

What’s your uniform for greatness?

D56 – Clueless Foundation

Experimenting with flowers early in the morning. You must have a solid foundation before you go onto the beauty that you will build upon your base. It’s a process I am working on diligently every single day.

I failed a lot but I have micro success that help me keep going. I’m happy and motivated to get this crazy train called life moving along on a path that I build with my bare hands.

Goodnight/day,

David

D55 – Acceptance

IMG_20180224_095818-01.jpeg I failed again but I accepted it gracefully. I will continue to post everyday and will do so earlier to avoid any other mishaps.

This photo is about standing strong during troubling times.

Live with uncomfort,

David

D54 – Limit

Industrial photography, street photography

IMG_20180218_105444.jpgBeen playing with yellow a lot and pushing myself to explore new areas. This is a shot I’ve been exploring and decided to take it early in the day.

Pushed myself and walked 4+ miles in a new area. I was able to take a lot of photos but this one is not one of them. I’m still editing the ones I took today. To truly understand yourself, you have to know your limits and truly challenge yourself. I’m proud to say that I did that today.

Do something that makes you proud,

David

D53 – Center: Moving Line

IMG_20180218_104055.jpgExploring paths and playing with shadows. Went out a little later than normal so no one was around at this time. I captured this subject from various angles. I was working with lines as well and I accomplished what I was seeking to do.

I discovered my love of moving or rather I realized my love for moving. I didn’t realize this as I can’t run at the moment and I have a lot of things on my plate that force me to not be in the best mindset all the time. That’s changing but that’s due to my progress on my journey to the strongest version of myself.

I’m still exploring who I am but I am getting a better grasp every single day when I do a new activity, an old one with a new mentality and when I have time to truly think.

Explore the depths,

David
