Eye

DSC_2204.jpg

Captured this shot near where I live. It looks like an eye with a 7 but when I first saw it I thought this tagger might be a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh! That’s the main reason why I wanted to capture this subject. I like the lines present and even the trees work well to me. It’s not perfect but I enjoy this shot.

I’m planning to change jobs so I’ll be job hunting like my life depends on it. Still exploring my options and will go after the jobs that I truly want or wouldn’t mind having. Might try to get an internship and a part-time job or two to gain more experience. Anyway, doing my best to continue to be dedicated to improving myself and my passions.

Like Vash says “Peace and love”,

Took this shot shortly after Halloween. I like how well it’s blurred but the face of the subject is a bit blurred which disappoints me a bit. However, forgetting that I actually like this shot. I like seeing the age of the chain and the overall wear of the object. I would like to explore this subject again but sadly it was gone when I walked past this spot again.

Decided to seek a new job due to various reasons. So I will start looking for jobs tomorrow. Made some changes in order to be more dedicated to my passions and me. Overall, I do feel more fulfilled overall and I feel like I have more opportunities to be happy. I’m focusing on what’s important to me and will continue to make the best decisions I can for myself, my family, and my future.

I am a photographer and my confidence is growing stronger.

Enjoy your decisions,

Is it Worth it?

DSC_2710

When I first saw this shot in my photo folder after uploading it I actually liked the shot. However, the more I look at it the more I wonder if it actually works. I like the subject and the angle. It is the blur that makes me wonder if this shot works. Most of me is saying yes as it is my type of photography. I am weird and go against the grain. My goal is to be me and have my photography represent me and the stories that I want to tell/showcase. So in the need, I have to learn the fundamentals better but at the same time just do me.

Working on changing jobs and exploring my options while I am still young. I am focusing on that and improving myself daily. My life has improved but at the same time, I have more room to grow in certain areas. My social life is at an all-time high as I actually have genuine friends that I hang out with every Sunday and sometimes Thursday. However, it is my career that is the problem. I’ve been working for 7 months now at a retail store. It is a simple job if they leave us alone and allow us to work at a healthy pace. We often have meetings where they celebrate people’s work anniversary. One woman has been there for eight years and what she had to say scared me. “I can’t believe it’s been eight years. I looked up one day and eight years have gone by”. I really don’t want to live like that. It’s okay for some people but not me. So despite my inner self delaying looking for a new job because of all the people I connected with at this job place, I have decided venture out before it is too late.

I am hoping to find a job in the career field that I want to work with or at least a job that gives me enough time to do my passions on the side until I am ready to do them as a career.

Anyway, that’s enough for now. I have to sleep now to make sure I’m 100% for work tomorrow.

 

Peace,

David

Another Look

Took another shot of the same subject of the previous post. This time the first bolt is in focus while the others are blurred. I like this shot more than the previous one. I am focusing on the fundamentals of photography and trying to improve daily.

Have fun and do what you want,

Back

I have no excuse for not updating this blog. I’m going to post as much as I can and get better as a photographer and a writer.

I enjoy taking shots of aged metal and machines. I wish all the bolts were in focus but I do kind of like how the second one helps break the pattern of blurred subjects. Thought about making this photo black and white but I enjoyed the way it looks in color.

 

That’s it for my first post of 2019. I will keep this up no matter what.

 

Stay dedicated,

 

David
