Anything

While I was waiting for my friends, I happened to choose this church as our meet up spot. I took several shots in my attempt to capture the whole building. This was the result of my best effort. I see now that I can go back and edit the photo to be lighter, however, I like how gritty the building looks. So I can honestly say that I am satisfied with this shot.

Going back to San Francisco on Friday and can’t wait to explore the city again with my camera. I will be doing a lot of walking but will probably stay in two general areas of the city. Been using a high incline on a treadmill every other day in order to better prepare myself for the streets of San Francisco as last time I went it was a bit of a struggle. I find it much easier to pack for the trip this time around.

I will be updating this post on Friday, I’ll probably be in my hotel room when I do so. Hopefully, I would have taken a lot of photos by then. Anyway, enjoy your life.

 

Peace!

Up and Short

Not my best shot but it is one that I enjoy. I hope to be able to get better as an editor as it is a huge part of being a photographer. There is a lot for me to learn and I will continue to do so. I won’t rush and get disappointed if I don’t see instant results. Patience and communication is key. I will be going back to San Francisco this week so hopefully I can have another shot at this building and others like it.

Doing my best to change and to sacrifice everything that I don’t really need so I truly pursue happiness. Slowly but surely I will see results. I simply have to keep my head up and smart small while keeping my purpose in my heart.

 

Keeping it short and hopefully it will become a habit again.

Peace,

David

Beauty & Some Change

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

Exploring

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,

Eye

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”,

Tower

Another older shot of mine with a Sony Cybershot. I didn’t edit this one either but I plan to as practice.

I am still learning how to edit raw photos in Lightroom and Photoshop. I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a decent photo editor. For now, I’m watching videos on the topic and photography in general. I’m focused on becoming a photographer but I’m open to explore wherever I go on this path of mine.

Peace for now,

David
