Because people believe in you.
There is nothing more exciting in life than knowing that people believe in you. That the people you love and respect want you to pursue your passion. I haven't even opened my gift yet but I want to scream from the mountain top with excitement.
The mister got me a "real" camera for Christmas. Anyone who has known me for the past 7 years, knows that this has been my desire. My want, my need, my hope. I'm one of those people who think in pictures. When I speak I have to translate the images in my head to words. It's difficult and it's frustrating. Now I can bring my mind to life.
Google Plus has always been a safe haven for me. I immediately circled all of the most talented photographers I could find, because I lived through their work (I'm actually crying while I write about this). There are far too many to mention but I'm going to name a few that have touched my soul : +Isabelle Fortin
, +Mark Rodriguez
, +Jake Easley
... Ugh my mind just went blank +Samir Osman
, +Lotus Carroll
, and so many many more. These people gave me hope, they gave me reason.
It gave me great pleasure this morning to send the image below to my greatest photographer friend +Kyle Wilson
and share with him my giddy moment only to find out we now have twin cameras.
I cannot wait to share what actually goes on in my head with everyone. Thank you +DJ Ashley Power
and +Kyle Wilson
for all of the love and support that you've provided so far. any tips and tricks will be appreciated
