I sometimes sit and wonder what I will write here. Do i make it inspirational, do I tell about my week and what I’ve witnessed, or do I just let the images sit by themselves? I truly don’t know most of the time. (It doesn’t help that I try to write this just a mere moments before posting).
Each image though has a story within it. From the idea, to the trial and error, to the final product: each story is one that relates to me but I hope even more so relates to you. That’s one of the things I love about art: creating images just for the joy that it brings me to create it and then placing it into the world for the world to judge, love, criticize, and all the in between. It shall never be about awards or accolades, just the joy I get from being able to share something that is near and dear to me.
I hope you find the joy to do the same in a medium of your own.
This week has encompassed many emotions. From protests, small birthday celebrations, to the innocent children running and playing, I have seen a lot in such a short time. One thing is clear, there needs to be change in many ways in this country for we are literally and metaphorically burning. Yet, I also am one that cannot only look at the media everyday. I constantly have to remind myself to take time away and appreciate the smaller joys in life. Family, friends, nature. It is my hope that through these movements we can move to a more just society where everyone can freely experience these little joys without fear. There is a song I heard recently that sums it up for me…
”I wanna see, I wanna see the love. That’s all around you. That’s all around you.”
Love people. Stay Safe,
Another week, another Top 10. Part of me wonders why I call it a Top 10 since well, that’s just my take and I never know what others may think of them. But I guess that’s why art is created and not designed.
Anyway, the week had some adventures and also had some really boring days, but as I’m learning more and more there is beauty in everything everywhere. Take a moment and don’t be afraid to take the shot.
