A slightly different shot of the flower plus I wanted to see how it would look in black and white. It’s okay not great, but I still enjoy this shot. Might have been a better angle if this flower was a rose. I have a lot to improve and gladly try.
Relaxed today, started a new exercise routine which is okay. I will have to tweak it and add a dumbbell routine as well. Besides that, didn’t do much but take time to clean and rest from work. Been binge-watching “Community” which is a show that open leaves me in tears from laughter.
My stocks are doing decent, I was able to invest some money but didn’t go crazy. Going to set up a study schedule so I can actually get some learning done. I have books on Japanese language, Korean language, investing, photography, political philosophy, and manga to get through but haven’t read in a while. It’s something that I have to change immediately and setup a time in the day to simply read. The same can be said about writing. Haven’t wrote anything in a few days besides these blog posts.
Well need to get back to the drawing board. So good night and sleep well,
Going to update this blog daily again but with more focus on putting multiple photos in each post. This is a shot I took after walking past this area for a few days in a row. I wish I could have made the flower stand out more but I do like the shot.
I explored visual hierarchy with this shot. I enjoy this shot a lot, as it is probably the most creative photo I’ve taken with flowers as a subject. There are a few changes that I would make if I get another chance. I can see that my photography is growing gradually each time I view the photos for editing.
Choosing what is important and what isn’t important in the long run. Giving up what isn’t important is challenging, however, it’s worth it if I want to be a better creator and a better man. One thing I’m giving up is naps unless absolutely necessary and giving up certain YouTube channels and focusing on finding my passion. Instead of doing these things I will focus on acting and gather experience to improve in every category.
I am falling in love with the process as it is thought-provoking. Although, when done right you don’t think at all when you are working hard. In the past, overthinking has been a weakness of mine. I’m working on it and I know it can’t be fixed right away but I’m improving every single day.
I love these flowers and how they look without editing. They are beautiful as they bask in the sun on a nice day. Basically, enjoy the simple moments and the simple beauty while it lasts.
Explored a new are today and caught this photo while on this adventure. I’m working up to walk 4 miles a day, at the moment I walk two and a half miles. I enjoyed playing with the shadows and nature as I was deeply thinking. I am focusing on not being lazy with the photographs and plan the shots out more.
Watched the NBA All-Star game and was highly disappointed in more than one way. I realized I that I must take my craft seriously every single time I pick up my camera and I must put out the best work I can every single time I upload something. Also, I need to relax and be more laid-back and enjoy life.
Things are starting to become clearer to me and my path is starting to form as I dig through life. Made some changes but I must change more things to become the best version of myself. I will continue to work smart and to work hard, this is my promise to myself.
In the end it doesn’t matter what people want for you. It only matters what you want as only you can live your life. Try not to be anyone else but yourself. You are here for a reason and that is to live and create.
Much better day mentally. I got over my emotional hump and put myself back on the right track. Pushed myself to the limit today and currently resting before I continue to work until I can think clearly anymore. Here’s to trusting the process. 🤗
Took a moment to capture life and slow things down a bit. Returning to form is difficult but I trust the process. Will reach true success not like the Sixers. I take the time to smell the “roses” now to keep a clear mind for the journey ahead. Each photo was captured in the morning with each one reflecting the emotion I felt at the moment. Fallen but not dead, pure despite the shadows of life, and growth in darkness. Each one has more depth than I could ever explain.
We live fast in this age so it’s even more important to take the time to slow everything down. Take a walk with no goal, take life in. See Kidd playing, people walking dogs, smell the flowers, and take it the beauty of life. The walk will improve your body and mind. You will be a stronger version of the you now by simply walking in nature.
Taken on a cloudy day with my Cybershot. I love these flowers if they are flowers. I love the multiple colors which is pleasing to the eye.
