be thankful for everything you have, instead of focusing on what you don't
life... waits for no one
My Hobby, My Passion
At some point, I hope to get good, but until then, I will continue to carry my camera wherever I go and rely on Luck, Mother Nature, God, Coffee and a LOT of film.
thanks for visiting!
I am a hobbyist and a hapless/hopeless romantic
UPDATE: I have a Nikon 5200 with both an 18-55mm and 55-300mm lens set, as well as a MONSTER 80-200mm full-frame f2.8 zoom (2.8 through the entire range!!!!!)
I still have a 35mm Analog Camera that I love to use when I can
I get my film developed by mailing it to NYC and waiting a week to see the results xD
I don't have photoshop or any fancy editing software suite
I believe in Love
I am here merely to share... to give... and I hope what I present is appreciated... I hope maybe someone else can see what I see.
Life is a blessing... share it with those you love. Give yourself to those who understand you... who love you for YOU, not the you they want you to be. Never hide, or change... there is no one like you. Make them EARN the right to be by your side.
Never settle for what you have known or what you have become used to because it is comfortable, or secure even in it's discomfort... do not avoid the future, or uncertainty or the unknown just because there is risk. No Risk=No Reward.
I PROMISE to respond to all comments and will try to thank you for the faves... i love to visit EVERYONE'S gallery, but it can become overwhelming to promise to respond to faves (plus.... see my bullets below! )
the short story of me:
This is like my absolute favorite emoticon, ever...
i prefer subtle over obtrusive
i prefer passion to ambivalence
i prefer sensual over sexual
i prefer substance over superficial
i prefer love over lust (although love WITH lust fucking rocks the furniture!)
i prefer hard truth over comfortable ignorance
and i prefer quality over quantity
i love coffee
i hate starbucks
i love thoughts
i hate exploitation
i prefer comments over faves
...and if anyone... ever hurts someone i care about... hell hath no fury, and the devil, too, will be afraid...
OH YEAH.... plus, life-like pictures of dolls freak me the hell out and fetish portraits of feet stolen from other sites is not art.
I have a sister
I just lost a parent
I want a golden retriever
I miss the mountains
I miss the ocean
I think everyone deserves respect... even those with none... because we are all part of a machine much bigger than ourselves, and to think we are in this alone is ignorant and foolish. we live together. we love together. we die together. NONE of it is easy, so we all damn well better hope that someone else has our backs once in a while!!!
... anyone who believes in telekenisis: raise my hand!!
omfg... riots and idiotsAt what point did some rocket scientist, get together with his nobel prize winning associates and decide: "hmmmm. someone was elected president with crazy-psycho views on some things that we don't agree with, and beat our only other option who is a theif, a liar and a career politician who supports welfare for life.... hey! let's riot! that's gonna fix it. it will make us more respectable and give us loads of goodwill points if we RIOT... and BURN things.... yeah. that's gonna get us respect."
serisously!?! I am so ashamed to be an American, right now. I bet 30-40% of those protesters DIDN'T EVEN VOTE (just a guess) and THEY are the reason Trump won. They were SOOOOOO confident Hilary was going to walk away with it, they did not bother to show up... and NOW they are pissed and spouting off.
IF YOU DIDN'T VOTE: STAY HOME AND PISS AND MOAN AT GUMBALL!!!!! Maybe he'll listen and care. not.
really? a riot will fi
