Beauty & Some Change

DSC_4099.jpg

A shot I took as I walked to Chinatown in San Francisco. I really like the architecture of the city and I hope I will be able to capture some more shots the next time I go. I would have made the shot more symmetrical, however, I like the imperfection of this shot. There’s almost a dark feeling being presented with the flag waving slightly above the middle of the shot is a nice touch. The word “beautiful” comes to mind when I see this shot. I realize I truly love this.

Been thinking a lot but I still have some more to do. The most important part is to actually act on the results of my deep thinking sessions. There are going to be a lot of changes coming to my life and in result myself.

peace and be free,

David

Friendship

DSC_3723.jpg

Another quick portrait of my friend as he drives us to San Francisco. I couldn’t imagine that I would have two good friends and those two friends would become friends as well. I also can’t believe that I would actually go on a trip with other people. I can honestly say going to San Francisco was one of the best experiences of my life. I hope that I am able to go back with these guys. Someday I’ll go back on my own and explore but I would truly be grateful if the two of them would still be my friends in the future.

Enjoy true friendship,

P.S. not my best portrait but I’m practicing and doing my best to improve.

Beautiful Escape

DSC_3717.jpg

Took this shot of my friend while we were arriving in San Francisco. I really enjoyed it as I know he’s one depressed mofo and that moments where all three friends can hang out are moments where he doesn’t have to be in that mindset. So I would title this photo as “beautiful escape”.

I don’t take many photos of people but I am doing¬† my best to change that. Focusing on portraits in order to further my skills. Hopefully, I can continue to express myself and others through my shots.

Stop

A very simple shot that I took at a “Forest Gump” inspired restaurant called Bubba Gumps. I had a good amount of fun at this place and even watched a few moments of Forest Gump.¬† I did my best to try to capture this famous phase that was splayed on the floor under my friends feet.

I’m sure I could have taken this shot better but I captured this shot as I wanted to. It’s not everyday you are in San Francisco with your friends.

Still working things out in my life and making the moves that I need to.

Peace,

Exploring

DSC_3699.jpg

I find myself doing things that I don’t normally do in order to improve myself. I’ve been spending a good amount of time with my two friends. This shot was taken in a field in one of my friend’s neighborhood. I’m drawn to machines and steel. I like to take shots like these especially when there are wires and the weather is perfect. This shot has a dark feeling to it like it’s showcasing an upcoming storm.

Wanted to capture some of the birds that were hanging out but I did manage to capture one in flight and a few on the top. Now that I’ve studied this shot a bit more, it happens to remind me of Hitchcock’s Birds. It’s a film that I enjoyed especially since I watched it with my grandma who first watched it when she was a little girl.

I’m exploring my options and taking time to truly think.

Words are nice but action is better,

Let it Be

DSC_3145-2

A simple shot I took while leaving work one day. I really love the rain and have yet to capture a shot that I truly enjoy. This one is close but I have a lot of work to do. Thinking about trying out another lense.

 

Going to San Fran tomorrow, I’m excited! There will be a lot of opportunities to take some great shots. Hoping that we don’t run into too much traffic while there. Working on getting a better education in the things that I am passionate about. Stay tuned for that and much more.

Enjoy yourself,

Found this when I was walking around aimlessly. I like to capture things like this even if some people find my photos creepy. I find myself being afraid of color photos but I took a chance to keep working on editing color photos. I believe I am improving in this area but still have much to learn.

Planning to go to San Fransisco this week so I will have a lot more photos to edit. I am excited to go wild and capture a new area. Working hard to improve myself and in effect my life. Not every part of my life is moving but quite a few are. I still have to make changes to further my progress. I’m doing so much better and I am happy that I am going down this path. I will keep my head up and do what I have to do.

Peace!

Hold

DSC_2436.jpg

Again it’s not blurred perfectly but I enjoy this shot. I like how the fibers look so aged and how the area around the subject adds emotion to the shot. Basically, “what part of this rope are you holding and what side are you on?” was my thought process when taking this shot.

Been getting things done and have seen some results. I’m more motivated than ever to keep on going. Sure, I don’t always want to go to the gym or do anything productive but I force myself and it gets easier for me. I’m doing my best to focus on the task at hand and improve myself daily. So far it’s working and I’m loving every moment of it even the negative things.

I hope you all have a good night,

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”,
