Re-inspired

On my second plane… during the 12th hour… I was feeling drained and the excitement that I was actually going to India was fading. But when the indian man in the window seat saw my face looking out the window… he offered to switch places.  I was amazed… Mountains… poking into the clouds… completely untouched by humans. It instantly re-inspired me. Hard to explain with a picture… but here is a quick shot anyways.
Lots more photos from India coming soon.

Use before expiration.

I create a lot of photos.
It’s my way of expressing ideas and feelings I have, towards humanity, individuals and myself.
This 2 image series I did is my favorite of all my work… because it took a lot of effort to create but also a lot of thinking. I had a feeling.. and tried to express it visually… and while creating it, it kept evolving… and in the finished product, it started saying more than I ever consciously thought of. I can now read these images multiple different ways and I love that. My own images here have inspired me to not only put deeper meaning into my photos… but to create images that can be read so many different ways… because just like the book of life… we all write and read different stories.

Where on the map?

Where on the map…. do I want to go?

I have a big map on my wall with pins that I have put on places i’ve been and places i’d love to go. I just keep adding them… but at some point i’m going to have to chose between all those pins… roll up my map and pack it for my next destination…
or JOURNEY I should say.
What an exciting choice to have.
(Here is a random shot I did of pins on my map… you should put up your own map and pins… it’s so inspiring + fun!)

Runaway

I hear people say this one line all the time, it’s even been directed at me before…
” YOU CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM YOUR PROBLEMS” 
Well you know what, I think you can.
Because running away, usually implies running towards something else.
The fact is you are running into another experience,  running into new lessons, new insights, sometimes even new perspectives on the “things” you were “running away from” to begin with.
And all those sound amazing… so…. why not run away? Worst it can do is give you a new perspective.
