Day 99 – Building

DSC01629-01.jpeg

Caught this shot while exploring a new neighborhood on a lovely Sunday. It was taken a while ago, I love the shot but I can see the errors. I also realize by viewing this shot I do have an understanding of composition and have always been taking shots that I am interested in even if others don’t see the beauty.

Today, was a decent day, however, I have pain in my leg that I have to work out before it gets too bad. Besides that I am feeling a bit better physically. I have also come to realize that I am highly stressed and I need to unwind even though I value entertainment too much. I have to have some results before it’s too late as I have nothing but my health at the moment. I’m doing my best to kill bad habits and establish betters ones. It is challenging to say the least. I understand that I am here because of my past mistakes. I admit that and by me doing that I have become stronger. I have so much to do not only to catch up with where I want to go but also to the man I am suppose to be.

Pursue your dreams, understand yourself, and take action. Own up to your mistakes and be free.

Peace,

David

D52 – Fundamental

Exploring the city and myself more and more. I am truly enjoying myself and I am discovering new and old things. It has been an thought-provoking week. I’ve explored a few paths and found a simple solution. I have written up a gameplan that starts at this moment. To know who you are is a fundamental step to improving.

This photo was captured on a walk when I had a clear mind. I watched a video about Tim Duncan thus the title of this blog. If you are a true NBA fan then you know what I mean.

Be greater than you,

David

When Life is Cold

We have have a time in life when everything bad that could happen did happen. Right now, I am in this period. I have a lot of problems that are slowly crushing my shoulders with no real solution in sight. Thus this is why I decided to capture an appliance isle in a hardware store. It repersents the coldness of life through lifeless objects surrounded by steel. I feel a certain coldness from this shot like a few other of my photos. 

When life is cold, you can’t give up. Instead of sitting on my ass, I’m changing for the better. Going through self development and discovery while tackling each of my problems one at at ime. There are moments where I crash but I set up motivational objects all around me. My wallpaper for my Cellphone is a motivatonal quote, my tablet is the same as is my ps4. I have photos of my own hanging on my wall to remind me of my artistic goals. No where in my room or life can I be without being reminded of what I am suppose to be doing and why. You may slip but get up. If there is a wall, smash through the wall. It’s all a journey, so its not going to take a day to fully change but it all starts with one step one change. One simple change can lead to more small changes that end up becoming a big change. 

Baby steps turn into giant strides,

Be Different

I love taking shots of subjects that don’t “move”. I grew up taking shots like this and never sought to capture things that are extremely popular subjects to take photos of. I don’t try to be different, I just am. Instead of trying hard to be different just be yourself. 

Stay true to who you truly are,

David 

I

I Street bridge in Sacramento, CA. Built in the early 1900s and has been beautiful ever since. I love the area around it as well, it’s perfect for riding bikes and photo walks. You can see a lot of buildings that have been around for a long time. It’s also very close to old Sacramento. I love these kind of moments and hope to capture more shots in this area. 

Love the process of growth,

David

Full metal photography 

I take a lot of photos of industrial subjects. Due to where I live and where I go its easy to capture them. I enjoy the coldness and general shape of various machines. Someone once said I wrote like a robot as I tend to have a hard time to express my emotions. 

I’m a little better but still have a ways to go. Anyway, I got the idea to fuse machines and people in my photography thus steam punk came into my mind. Steam punk is gritty, it’s fantasy plus realism, it’s creative, and fuses several of my interests. Now I just have to discover the path to realize that idea. 

This was taken with my Cybershot before my tennis class started. I hoped to capture the grittiness and age of the subject. 

Been in the mood to watch full metal panic a lot. 

Not a problem!

Don’t settle in life¬†

I hardly ever strive be the best in anything, I strive to put everything I have into what I am doing. I inspire to invoke emotion and to tell a story. 

I put in my whole being into my photography. Why? Because I love it. Its more than that as well it’s because I have passion for it. I am always striving to be the best version of myself. I am always striving to improve unintentionally at times. I have gone so far and I truly want to live the life I’ve always dreamed about. For that to have I have to act. 

I will never settle, I will put myself through hell to end up as a champion. I only want to be the best I can be. I will never stay still. I will always aim higher until I finally drop and the light fades to black as I close my eyes for the last time.

Be your own champion,

David
