I woke up this morning and looked at my phone and it said October 1st. I’m like what the hell happened to September? It went by so fast, so very fast. The days are getting shorter and shorter every day as we get closer to the inevitable and that’s snow. I am definitely not looking forward to winter, not ready at all.
This year went by so fast, almost a blink of an eye. Only two months left of 2019 before the big 2020 and the year that I’ll turn 30 and I’m scared. I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything in my 20s. Photography is something I thought I would have progressed further since turning 20 but I can’t say I’ve progressed a lot. Sure I’ve definitely gotten better over the years but not as much as I should.
It’s discouraging when someone picks up the camera for the first time and they are instantly better than you. Makes me want to give up but that’s just the way it is. We all progress at different pace, some faster than others.
But I digress.
I haven’t written anything on my blog in quite a few months, since July 4th so I figured I’d make an update. I’ve redesigned by website several times throughout the year, just kept experimenting with different designs trying to figure out the best way to showcase my work and have a place to write. But I think I’ve settled on this design, I quite like it and I like how simple it is. Minimalism is quite a popular theme these days and I’d say it’s a good thing as it allows you and the view to focus on the content. Let me know what you think?
I did do something out my comfort zone this year and that’s going to my 10 year high school reunion. It was really hard for me as I’m just not a sociable person but I put my fear to the side and went anyways. It turned out to be good, it was nice seeing some old faces and even new ones I didn’t see in high school. Had lots of laughs, it was a great time and I was proud of myself for doing something out of my comfort zone.
As for my photography, It’s been a rough year as I’ve fell into several ruts throughout the year. I’m still working on getting out of one at the time of writing this. I really haven’t been inspired much to shoot to be honest, I had my days when I was inspired and took some great photos. So it wasn’t a total loss but social media has made it hard for me. I need to stop comparing myself to others and stop caring about the likes because at the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter.
So yeah it’s October now. I’ve been out shooting some fall foliage. I’ll share some pictures later.
For now, I’ll talk to you all later.
