Happy 2019! I hope you all are having a great start to the year, but even if you’re not, don’t be discouraged. Every day is a chance to start fresh!
Since I didn’t get to do as much photography this year as I did last, I’ve decided not to do a year review. I’m incredibly thankful for the following I’ve gained this year and the successes you all have given to me! Thank you. Going into 2019, I’ve updated some little things on this website, including the main page and the addition of a search bar in the galleries. I’ve set new goals, and I’m looking forward to this new year ahead in photography!
So what is this blog about? After a hiatus from Flickr, I decided to “go back” and start posting again. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that sharing on Flickr had previously been my way of processing the things that were going on in my life. Although I’m grateful for that platform and how much sharing my photos the way I did helped me, I’ve strayed away from it in recent years. I’ve found myself processing the situations in my life differently. Photography is still a passion of mine and is very meaningful, but no longer in the same way. I’ve been trying re-work how to share my work on Flickr, and I think I’m figuring it out.
As I was looking through my Flickr stream, I noticed how much I used to put words on my photos. It wasn’t the most aesthetically pleasing thing, but it was trendy at the time. Some of these photos mean a great deal to me to this day. I wanted to do a little #throwbackthursday and share some of those photos with you all.
The colors in this one hurt my eyes a little…
I tried this paper words “editing technique” with film photos, too.
I still think about this poem often, always wondering when to unlock that gate and what would happen if I did…
I remember posting this one when I felt like I was dealing with way too much for someone my age.
There are plenty more where these came from if you want to check them out. I’m grateful for the words of others who helped and continue to help me through tough times, and help me articulate the great times as well.
