Summer is so fleeting. Enjoy it while you can.
I just had to post today. My fave model (in the photo) is going through some really tough times. And his mood really came out in the photos yesterday. He’s like my own son. All my models are like my kids and I love each and every one of them. When one hurts I hurt and it makes me want to cry. I feel so bad for him. Not just one thing but several things are happening to him. He hurts. I’d do anything to help if I could but I can’t. I’m so frustrated that I can’t help. I just don’t want him hurt anymore. Does that make sense? Should I be so involved in their lives? Anyway. Here’s a photo we did yesterday. I’m posting it in hopes that anyone reading this will send their thoughts and prayers his way. And thank you!
Street photography and music. What a combo! This young man was just trying to make a living in the streets of Las Vegas. Boy do I know the feeling.
Music is so expressive. Being a musician makes me appreciate the art in life. Photography, like music, allows our minds to be free to express our thoughts. Though it might be just a moment.
I have been so engrossed in self-pity and other depressive processes lately I have to pull myself out. One thing that has come of it is I have found that my passion for photography is my only escape. I have in all my lonely hours figured out more of the whys to my love of the craft. It is my way of staring down reality in the face and climbing the obtrusive walls in my life. So now I move forward. Plans fail and I have to live with that but giving up is not an option anymore. Better things ARE in store! Weather permitting of course!
Just a plug for my portfolio. It’s up and running and I hope to share it with you. Let me know
what you think.
