There are no photo edits this time for a reason. I want you to understand how raw my life is. How much I missed capturing the raw beauty that is my life. I missed capturing, and sharing, those amazing unedited eyes.
It’s no secret that in May, on my way home from a conference, an American Airlines flight attendant shattered my Nikon D3100 and my life halted a bit. I’m not just talking about my online life, or my career (although those were hurt severely). I’m talking about capturing my life in photos. There are no do-overs in life. But we can capture moments in time, in photos, and those photos should make us feel that moment over and over again. I lost a lot of that over the past few months in hopes that that airline would do the right thing. But they did not so I took matters into my own hands and replaced my camera, with a better one!
Today my Nikon D3200 arrived. And in mere moments, I captured those eyes.
And I captured that smirk.
And that attitude? I captured that!
I captured silliness (with that huge mess in the background I might add).
My life is beautiful and I should be able to capture every beautiful moment in beautiful clarity. I can do that again and I’m absolutely ecstatic. Good times, or bad times, should be remembered because they make us who we are. I’m happy I’ll be able to capture these moments again so that I can look back, through a clear lens, and relive them on a daily basis as the time passes.
Sit back, enjoy the view, and enjoy the clarity in your life. I’ve decided that no matter the set backs, no matter who wants to fight me, I’ll just keep plugging along and taking care of me and mine. And I’m happy I can see life in beautiful focus again and share it with all of you!
