Lunar Eclipse

It is a spectacle because it is rare. It’s worth losing sleep over because it is unique. And in the world of marketing it is something to think about, a standard to strive towards.

When I’m stuck in traffic I feel like I’m crawling at a snail’s pace; when I’m walking along the road I feel like the cars are going much too fast.  It is funny how perspective changes everything.

Light Beams

I’m glad I’m not the only one that likes to play in the beams of light.

Just Tools

Equipment, tools, implements are simply equipment, tools and implements.  While some tools are better than others; there is no guarantee that art will be created when using one over the other.  It’s great if one is able to get the best, even better if you use what you have to create art.

I don’t seem to have the patience for this kind of detailed worked. But that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it. And if I appreciate it then by definition I notice it. And if I notice it I can compose it. And if I can compose it then I have the beginning of being able to tell the story of it.

25th Place

So, last year’s NASCAR champion was the 48-team, driver Jimmy Johnson.  

That was last year.  

This past weekend, shortly after the race started, the 48 car hit debris from a car wrecking in front of him, damaging the windshield and left front end of his race car.  After having to pit several times, he would have to restart the race in last place.  After restarting and working his way back up into the middle of the 43-car field a blown rear tire would drop him back to the back, 2-laps down on the leaders.

No fault of his or his team, call it bad luck, wrong place at the wrong time; but the thing of it is, is a champion does what he needs to do when things go wrong.  A champion gets upset, gets down, gets angry, gets frustrated but ultimately gets back to work.  A champion works hard when the result is a winning effort and also, or should I say especially when things are not going well.  A champion fails and still keeps going.  A champion falls down, picks himself up and keeps going.  A champion has a bad day and keeps on going.

The question is, do I have that quality, do I have the moxie, do I have that commitment, do I have that persistence to have a bad day and finish in 25th place?

Thanks +Asma Nadia for taking this photograph of last year's Championship 48 car.

White Caps

It seems so far, so distant, almost unreachable; but if I dwell on those thoughts I’ll never make progress.  All I can do is set my course and try my best to hold true.  

And have faith.

Have Heart 

You should always pick a shutter speed that is fast enough to freeze the action, to get the sharpest detailed photograph possible.

Also, you should never color with crayons outside the lines. You should never eat your dessert before the main meal. You should never stomp around in rain puddles. You should never laugh for no apparent reason.

Travel and Landscape Photography. Here to Learn. Create. Participate.
Introduction
I believe the internet and social networks can be an amazing opportunity to find interesting, inspiring and thought-provoking creatives.  At no other time have places, cultures and creative energy from all over the world been so accessible; so easy to experience.  
 
It has become my desire to experience all that I can, learn all that I can, experiment, try, do and hopefully add to the community in the process.  I'm striving to improve my storytelling through learning and practicing photography as well as the written word.  While I have a disposition toward travel and landscape, if you stick around you’ll see that I have multi areas of interest.
