This project is making me think. About my beginnings, how I
have progressed and where I want to go from here. But, right now, I am
really thinking about how, for many years, I felt like I didn't have a
creative side. Something I was good at. I wanted that. Longed for it.
But I didn't know what it was. I tried things and none of them really
stuck for one reason or another. Because they weren't the thing that lit
my fire, I guess.
Around the time that my interest in
photography began, I was home with Anna for her first two years of life
and my sweet man was working everyday. He had bought me a Canon Elph
for a birthday or something and it ended up being near me at all times. I
took constant photos and videos so he could be a part of the amazing
things I was experiencing at home with our new baby.
progressed, I got better and Chris continued to buy me better and
better equipment. Flickr and my friends here played a huge part in my
inspiration and growth. I looked at other people's stuff and over all of
these years, developed my own style. It became second nature to be able
to capture what I wanted through my lens and share it with the world.
The moral here is this - whether it be a hobby, or a job or
whatever...keep looking/going for it. Don't give up. Even if you don't
know what it is or don't even know exactly what it is you're looking for
- chances are its in you. Keep digging deep.
