I invite you to spend the next 40 seconds feeling wonderful.
+Sassi Sassmannshausen creates all his own music for these as well ... so talented!
 
Pacific, Venice Beach, CA

40sec. :o)

I was shooting some skateboarders to have some footage for our students to work with. It was an amazing afternoon.
After dinner in Venice Beach, we went back and shot the nice Sun over the pacific.
I love those little clips. I challenge myself always to hear the music inside me, to show even more how much things move me. I reproduce it then in LogicPro. I hope you like the tune ;o)The Pacific is certainly top on my list of places in my hometown L.A.
Enjoy the weekend, if you like: Happy Easter.

Play Day

It was nice to see this service dog get a little "down time" from his daily duties (depicted here as "up time" ... ;o7). It was a lucky shot to catch him in this moment of affectionate play with his trainer. He jumped up to give her a kiss!

Happy Good Friday, everyone, and have a lovely weekend and Easter.

Stand Up For Yourself

You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.

~ Tony Gaskins

I found an interesting article this morning on how to stand up for yourself.

The basics:

1. Be prepared. If you know you’re going to have to make a case for yourself, make sure you know what you’re talking about. 

2. Baby steps. Try out your tactics in low-risk situations to start — like asking for more time on a project or taking a couple of tasks off your plate. 

3. Change your perception of being nice. Being a nice person doesn’t mean you have to say yes to everything –– it’s ok to put your foot down — you’ll still be nice. 

4. Practice quiet power. Continue to listen and show your appreciation for people even when you are standing up for yourself. You do not have to raise your voice. 

5. Be honest. Getting what you need and want to succeed comes from the heart. Skip telling people what you think they want to hear and be real.

Love posting to themes? You might enjoy these great themes with excellent curators! Themes and hashtags are not necessarily about getting more attention, but are a valuable indexing method, which help others find relevant posts via clickable links as well as a great way to meet like-minded people. I tend to only promote those themes with active, caring curators.

Oh yeah, I'm guilty of running on a bit myself, but it's those hyphens as separators...my mind just seems to shut off when I get to them.  Totally my fault.

The World Is My Teacher
 
All of the knowledge to be found in this world was originally empirical. 

It did not come from a book or a teacher; someone figured it out based on observation.

True, it is often faster to have someone show you how to do something, but to move into an area on your own and teach yourself based on your own observation, that is where creativity is born -- the ability to reach beyond the observations of others. 

This gives you the ability to see something that no one else has seen before.

Go and check out the exceptional view that +George Fletcher has to offer. And, if you haven't added him to a circle yet, he is a sure bet for a regular gorgeous view. (He's also a very nice person!)
 
#wordlessonwednesday  

Update (now that it's Thursday:)

This was shot at Bears Den Overlook on the AT near Bluemont, Virginia. While I've shot here many times (it's very close to where we live) I've never tried this comp before and I was really happy with the way it turned out:)

I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

In the past, I’ve never been much compelled to be very public. However, with the numbers in one private online community I belong to reducing like bills in a shore-leave-sailor’s pocket, a social network is possibly coming to a close for me -- so I am finding the need for an outlet of another kind. Or, maybe I’ve had a minor stroke and don’t know it.

I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.


Let me begin with this: 

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.
