When there’s nowhere else to run,
Is there room for one more sun?
One more sun…
If you can hold on
If you can hold on-
Hold on.

In Reflection.

This year has been a memorable one for me. I ended a diseased and broken relationship with my crazy [ex] girlfriend, started traveling, and created my own blog! I am so happy to have received such positive feedback on my photos. With no prior technical training in photography, I picked up a camera and embarked on a  journey that has taken me to some awe-inspiring places. This goes to show that if I can do it, ANYONE can learn.  I think my biggest epiphany in photography this year was learning what function an in-camera light meter served. For months, I was guessing all of my exposures *face-palm*!  

Since March, this blog has accrued 958 followers, 2500 page visits, and generated 119 blog postings. My many thanks to Lensblr, Telescopical, and my first followers: stephaniejasper, mdeansrauss, and aviddisk. And of course, thank you to ALL of my followers.

Like you, I am just your average joe. I am just an ordinary person that one day decided to see what else this world had to offer and brought a camera along for the ride. If there is one take-home advice I have to offer from this blog, it is this:

LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO YOU AND NO ONE ELSE. 

Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year,

Work work work.

After all of this working… I’m gonna take a month off. I’m gonna take my fuji, my tripod, and just live out of a backpack as I hike through Hawaii. Anybody wanna go with me?

Don’t get too close,
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide-

I have drank the mirrorless Kool-Aid and purchased a Fuji X100s.
Yeah, the highlights are in the water are blown to shit- I was kinda in a hurry. Hopefully, these rocks will still be there when I come back (probably not).
