D13 – Human Nature

black and white photography, nature, nature photography

DSC05448-01Daring myself to get lost in nature and simply breathe and think. Exploring has helped me further understand myself and my crafts. I enjoy being in nature without a care or any pressure to be anywhere. It’s a perfect place to slow down and smell the flowers.

This photo represents the paths I can take and the one I am currently on. Something is telling me to stray from my path, but I am keeping my head up and exploring the path I’m making. Not following instead I am making my path. This photo is another one I am proud of, I am thinking of adding a hint of blue in the shot. Will continue to experiment everyday.

Live hard,

David

Exploring the old

architecture photography, street photography

I went back to old subjects to recapture them. This building happens to be one of them and I am proud of he way that this photo turned out. I went back at an earlier time when no one was around to capture it without any human elements. I like how it is not perfect, especially with careful it’s wet sign visibe through the window. I enjoy taking photos of this entrance, I only wish it had a better surrounding. I’m glad that I went on a day that featured a nice sky, which leads to a great reflection. Clear skies are wanting for me:).

Have a great day/night and stay warm,

Nature of self

black and white photography, nature, nature photography, sky

It’s no surprise that I’ve been thinking deeply a lot since I started to walk more an more. I start to question things and have been diving into philosophy when I am not taking photos or listening to J.Fla. I have come to question myself as well, I learned more about myself the more I spen time without the distractions of television/Youtube.

I am responsible for everything, the reason I don’t write is because I don’t put pen to paper. I don’t take the time to upload as I chase after perfection or my percieved notion of it. I’ve come to stop that at this very moment as I come to the realization, I do have a problem. I’m the problem! I feel stronger by admiting it as if I am taking a baby step towards the sky. Myself has become clearer and with much action/practice I can truly become the man I am suppose to be. These photos reflect a new way of thought as each one repersents a new day that is shrouded by unexpected events. But if I am able to see through the darkness of self I can truly guide myself to the place I truly desire.

Do your own thing and live free,

David

Looking down as I explore

black and white photography, nature, nature photography

I’ve been taking a lot of nature photos and exploring different angles. I was taught early on to not do that so much but I have to do things my own way. I am not the biggest fan of sticking to the rules/principles. I would rather approach photography like how Jack Sparrow treats the “rules for pirates” as mere guidelines. As the year comes to an end, my thoughts have been deeper and I find myself questioning things. These photos repersent the darker things I am thinking about but the flowers respersent the light that shines despite the background that surrounds it. I am staying positive and looking through the dark spots to find the light.

Will be updating everyday now. Stay tuned and have a good day/night,

David

Small Subjects Made Big

black and white photography, street photography

Love capturing subjects that people normally ignore. These subjects have more character than is usually avoided due to how it looks or how forgettable a object may be. I often take photos of holes, tennis balls, cards and much more as a way to expand my creativity and my adaptability.
