It has been a while that I made any new images since the trip last time. The new position along with the class, and many others are taking a lot out of me. It’s about time for another journey up somewhere new.
These are a few images I have finally gotten to edit. With Reyes having a deep conversation with the wind on top of the Chapel of Holy Cross, I feel there’s a need to turn the colors off. Everyone knows how much I adore BW. The reason is just simple, it simplifies and takes you in to the emotion of the image.
In my own life, I begin to work on keeping it simple and making it balance as well: working my butt off and photographing until it hurts. Making photograph and exploring new places have becoming the key of keeping myself sane in life. I know my PaPa Dan is smiling and proud of me by stating this. He is always the one reminds me to find my own passion and go for it.
“Dream about your house, kiddo,” Pa said.
The more we think about something, the dream actually comes true. Setting your intention, let it happen, and not resist.
I see my dream, Pa. Though it is not quite making any sense, somehow, it is much more clear to me now than ever before. I know spending time with God’s creation has a lot to do with it.
He has put eternity in their heart.– Ecclesiastes 3:11
That they might seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, even though He is not far from each one of us. – Acts 17:27
Thank you Pa, and I love you and miss you…
Photography cannot be rushed. We always take our time to pre-visualize the image before we make the shot. Often time when it’s done in a hurry, we overlook small details that would make a difference in a photograph, which won’t turn out as pleasing or ’emotional’ (according to my book).
I enjoy making photographs that has emotions to them, it can be sense of affection, despair, grief, love, sorrow, warmth, melancholy, or happiness. It’s not much about capturing someone who is laughing, or ‘seizing the moment’ of that emotion, but more of what we human being are freely to express through how we see things in life. What a wonderful privilege we have to feel what we want to feel when looking into a scene.
I was very blessed to be companied with two great spirits in 2015 Thanksgiving to Sedona, Arizona. Though it was a short journey, it was filled with unspeakable joy. Thank you my love R.R. and O.M, and thank You Lord for placing us in Your creation on earth.
Your creation always heal me.
It was such a joy to be a part of this photo story:
the love between a brother and a sister.
He has been there from the beginning of her life. It has been 5 years and all he wants to do is to get her up high to reach to her dream.
What a story you need to witness. A pure and heartfelt relationship in one family. They both claim their love for each other is more than the other… fighting over how much they adore each other…
Keep fighting and walking onto the unknown together, R&M.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful love with me.
Stories will continue…
I am fascinated by the amount of patterns and textures I am seeing around Arizona. From the grains of sand to great grant mountains at the background, they all have their own uniqueness about it. I am continuing exploring my visual taste in the future and hoping you guys will enjoy as much as I do.
A little bud Phoebe picked up when we were at the park last Saturday. It has lots of details plus fuzzy hair over it. Quite a personality, really.
The ‘art’ piece my hubby created in his man cave: a car lift made out of wood beat up with paint and oil grease.
Thanks babe!! 🙂
