Exploring Life

Exploring while looking up. I took this with my Cybershot I believe, however, would like to take a new shot of a similar subect with my Nikon D3300. I think I made it too dark which is rare for me to say. Anyway, it’s an older picture and I can see very thing I can do to make this shot better next time. Surely but slowly I’ll improve till the day I die.

Working in retail gives me a lot of time to observe human behavior. A lot of what I’ve seen is negative as if people don’t know how to be respectful to others, products, or the employees of the store. I find so many half eaten things in random places like half eaten donuts in the freezer, half drank Gatorade behind cottage cheese, etc. Besides that, I simply think all day about what I need to do and what I truly want.

I do my best to muster energy to get things done but after this week I’ll be able to do a bit more. I’ll be working less and hopefully will be able to lose some more weight.

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

Day 44

IMG_20180116_122006

Just going out there and seeing what I can do. I took this photo a while ago but recently edited it. The focus is yellow and the grittiness of the light rail. It’s a simple shot that I enjoy. I am aiming to simply create things I want to do, even if no one checks the photos out or this blog. Every piece of art is a hit or miss, instead of feeling down I use this as a little gas for motivating myself to go further and create even more.

Just going to keep it simple today with the little insight of my life. I’m exploring my options and problems to come up with the right decisions for me. I’m planning with my mind on many steps ahead so I never lose sight of where I truly want to be. So basically, I’m investing in the long term even if I have to struggle now. That’s it for now, back to editing.

Always speak from your heart without guilt or shame,

David

Wandering

Forgetting the rules of photography to further the pursuit of my passion. I am doing things the way I want to without holding myself back. Been wondering a lot and am totally willing to get lost. I was inspired by a Bryan Cranston video, in which he states that we should be willing to get lost as we truly uncover new things.

Rather than label myself with various titles, I consider myself an explorer. Someone who ventures and captures the world as they see it or sometimes just explore without a camera but come back to capture it. I even provide photos for google maps when I take a photo of somewhere that showcases the subject at hand. Just wait there will be many more adventures and photos to come.

These photos repersent the paths I take when I walk. These are just a few subjects that I awalys see and others ignore. I capture these things and showcase their beauty.

Nothing is truly worthless,

David
