A passion that once fiercely captured all my spare time, and often my sleep, has spontaneously reawakened.
And I love it.
My camera, a Sony S LT-55V, has been a close friend in a time when creativity was in desperate need of expression.
I went all-in with the photography experience. I was fascinated by the thought of transferring a concept from the mind into a tangible image that could move people’s hearts as some images and paintings did mine.
Besides the accompanying 18-55mm lens that came with the purchase, I went and bought a 300mm lens, a 70mm macro, a stand, and a camera bag to carry it all.
I then took a professional photography course online, and the next thing I knew, I was so immersed that the other areas of my life became a chore.
I devised a strategy to get me back behind the viewfinder after several years, which was to leave it out in plain sight on its stand in the living room.
Two years later, I finally picked it up with a burning desire and almost with the same intensity as when I first bought it.
My woman knows how I get when to get “stuck-in” on something. It’s like nothing else exists. I go so hard at it until I eventually get tired of it or a certain level har been achieved.
She made me promise that was not going to happen this time 🙂
I guess what I am trying to say is that pictures will pop up here and there in my future posts.
I am glad to have regained a channel for creative expression, and I hope it lasts long enough for it to become a part of me.
I mean to be able to capture moments of wonder in unique and creative ways, transferring thoughts, emotions, dreams, and pieces of your own soul into passionately intriguing stories.
After all, a picture is worth more than a thousand stories.
Man, I am excited!
