I find that of recent for me the days are just meshing together like a ball of play-dough. All i really know is that I wake up and attempt to feel productive in the day, but ultimately there are days where i hit a grand slam, and days where i question each moment that led to indecision and thus inaction.
However when I have surpassed the urge to just lie around the house all day, I have found that I have met some incredible people (Obviously while social distancing!) and it always seems to be that i go out at the right time to capture that one specific moment. It’s kinda a weird feeling and hard to describe, but it has allowed me to relax into bed each night knowing that today, at least to me, I captured something meaningful.
So without anymore writing or in any particular order, here are my top images from this week!
Walking around Denton these days is a lot different, but i find that the town still has its charm and life. If anything I am becoming a little more aware of the fine details that make this town what it is. For that I will certainly miss when i leave one day.
Hello and welcome to me, Daniel Regalado!
If you haven’t read the bio page I’ll summarize here; I’m an upcoming college graduate with no post grad plans who loves people and wants to share his art and love of people with the world. Yeah, I think that sums it up pretty well. :)
So, you are probably wondering what this journal will be? Well it’s gonna be a mixing pot of things. So, here is what I have planned out so far…
A Weekly Top 10! - Each week on Monday I will showcase my top 10 photographs of the week. These may be street photos, my life, or any events that I am at (Once this quarantine ends…) It’s my hope that these small collections will overtime showcase my growth as a photographer while also just a large going on catalog of my work (Plus it keeps me creating!)
Small helpful tidbits and Lessons! - I have learned a lot in my years doing photography and over time I hope to share them with you. Whether these are actual techniques or just observations of the craft as a whole this is a small section where I want to be a mentor to people that are just begging their craft!
Story Time - You ever look at a photo and wonder “wow, what is the story behind that!?!?” Well, this is where I will tell that of some of my favorite images I have taken. Some may be elaborate others sometimes the story is quite simple, but it’s my hope that it brings a little more depth to the image and your perception of its contents.
Dan’s Brain Spill - This will just be me typing away about anything. Maybe it’s that latest documentary I watched where that really inspired me, or its just a funny moment from the days musings. This is where you will get to see a little more into the human that is Dan Regalado.
Q&A - Here is where I will answer your questions about anything you’d like! Just fill out your question in the connect form and when I get them I’ll answer them!
This will be a growing journal over time and maybe my writing skills will also improve because of it, that would make my dad happy. What will become of this website and journal in a few years… that’s is far beyond me. I just know that whatever it is, it will be great to have a place to catalog it and share it with people who want to follow along in the journey. Cause really at least for where we are now in my life I’m finding a lot of real solace in this quote:
“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” ― Bill Gates
Time to see what I can do.
