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 :heart:


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! :D )


the short story of me:

This :icontardglompplz: 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!! :wave:

Frustrated. Scared. Helpless.

Today, because I advocated peace and constructive action, I was accused of "supporting a rapist and everything he stands for."

I'm fairly certain I did not say that.

I can't control other people's feelings, or perceptions, but the part that I am really in anguish about is that this person misconstrued my feelings about peace and progress and has directed her anger at me, because she is a victim of rape.

I can't begin to fathom the pain and anguish of someone who is a victim of that horrific violation. I think of it as an abomination of the human condition and although I don't support the death penalty for it, I firmly believe in castration and incarceration (not "or")

Anyway… I just wanted to be clear on that point. Not that it matters anymore to this person, because I've been blocked from her page, but just to make sure that nobody gets the wrong idea.

By the way, I am also a firm believer are in "innocent until proven guilty." When guilty comes, take off the gloves and get out the scissors. ( I say this, mostly because I am a personal friend who was a victim of a false accusation. And even though the person who was accused was with me 1000 miles away at the time, it was a painful for him, for me, for my family, and for his family for years, and still has carryover a decade later.)

Be well, and love everybody! We're all in this world together for a very short time… Let's make it work

omfg... riots and idiots

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 10, 2016, 6:25 AM
At 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 fix things?  really?  grow up.  we have survived worse.  get on with your lives and do something PRODUCTIVE to make a change

i know someone who did not vote.  he slept 'til noon, went to his one class for the day, came home to take a nap, then went to work from 4-9.
he's pissed.  he's election bashing (even though he didn't vote).  "Did you know that Donald Trump doesn't believe in Climate Change?"  *insert disgusted "harumph!' here*

I look.  I roll my eyes.  "stfu" I think to myself and suggest that he and his Environmental Scientist buddies should have gotten together and encouraged everyone to vote (and vote themselves)...
...but his perspective/response to that idea: "Oh.  Really?  So it was my vote that turned the whole election sideways and let him in?  right. "  *insert another disgusted "harumph" here*

riots.  bitching.  emigration.
good.  go.  we'll fix it without you.

Is this man my first choice for Leader of the Free World?  Eff No.  Is Hilary?  Eff No.  But he's the damn President-elect now, and you can't change that, but there ARE things you can do about it:

start an awareness campaign
support causes you believe in
be active (not just active at bitching)

DO something for fuck's sake other than cry about it!!!

... and again, think about it:  how does starting a riot, attacking police, buring buildings, burning effigies (SERIOUSLY?!?!?) and smashing cars build a stronger America?  yup.  that's what Kennedy would do.
