Smile

As I was on my daily walk, I came across some random graffiti most likely from people who worked on the street. I don’t know if they did this on purpose, but this graffiti looks like a happy face to me. Not the best shot but the best shot I could have taken at the time. The message of the shot is to simple smile and find the good things in life to ebjoy.

Got to get out of your own head and open your eyes to the experience of life. I’m adding more responsibility to my plate and somehow I feel more mature. I’m sticking to a schedule as I’ll be busy for the next two days. I am going to be the cameraman/cinematographer for a short film Friday and I have a long walk to go through tomorrow. Then cram to get the required readings for a class before the deadline at 9am on Friday. I can’t say it will be busy but somehow I am enjoying responsibility and actually getting outside more.

Since I’ve been walking 3 miles a day, I feel healthier and happier. I do exercise regularly outside of walking. Its important to exercise for many factors and it’s important to eat right. I’m not always doing the latter so I don’t lose the fat that I want to easier. I’m trying and soon I can finally ture live my words I’m trying my best.

 

Have fun and live how you like,

David

Talking to Myself

Found myself lost as I was looking for a specific building. I caught this shot which proaprob shows that I wasn’t all too concerned about finding what I needed to. In the end, I was able to do what I had to do.

I love all the lines present in the shot as well as the shadows. I wish I captured this shot earlier, so that the light would be softer. I still enjoy the shot but I have room for improvement.

In two days, I walked around 9 miles. The more I condition my body the easier and faster it is to walk 4 miles + on one day. It makes each walk feel shorter than it is as well. I’ve been practicing visualization on each trip which helps me focus on where I want to go in life.

I’m waiting for my acceptance email to officially join a project. Doubt creeps in but I’m doing my best to change the way I talk to myself. It’s not easy but it must be done. I have found myself creating more and simply enjoying life more. I realized it’s a slow process after trying to quit so many times. Doing my best to become the strongest version of myself by getting into shape, both mentally and physically. It’s getting funnier just not easier. This is the path that I chose but one foot is still on the path of ruin that I allowed myself to walk through. Will take time for me to fully step off the path but I can feel my foot inching up a bit each day that I improve myself and do what I love.

 

Peace,

David

A Little Color

I’m playing with color more even though I often want to switch photo to black and white. This is not my favorite photo but I enjoy the warm colors present in the shot. I would go back and edit it better. I am noticing all the flaws as I write this post. I’m simply trying things in my pursuit to improve my photographic skills.

I’ve been walked 3 miles every morning, it’s a great way for me to start the game. I’m working hard to better my mental and physical health. Sacrificing things as well, my room is looking more and empty as each day goes on. I’m sacrificing all the things that either bring me joy or it’s just something to just watch. It’s incredibly different but I’m learning to fight the suffering to improve my life and myself. It’s a day-to-day process that I will not give up even after I get what I want. I want to be great so I must become great and with that sacrifice is important.

Take time to smell the flowers,

David

The Comeback

I was making my rounds around the tennis courts, when I spotted a dead ball on the side. I didn’t alter the position of the tennis ball at all. I don’t like to alter subjects unless they are alive. So often or not, my shots could be better by moving the subject. I make it harder for myself to capture a shot without in the state that I found it. I enjoy the leading lines that are not straight, it adds a little more depth to the shot.

Been working on improving my craft and myself in the process. I walk two miles everyday in the morning before I come home and just work my ass off trying to make something happen. I’ve been able to find an opportunity to start writing for another site which I am still in the trial period for. I’m exploring more options to give myself more responsibility so I can live life again. Baby steps into giant strides.

Going to be more consistent with my posts. Peace,
David
