All too often we hear a lot about evil and despicable people. Everything in the news and the social media makes sure to let you know that everything around you is bad and dangerous. Sometimes you have to take a step back and just shut everything off.
...and that's what I've done.
I don't go on social media anymore except for photography purposes. People who need me, to schedule stuff with me know how to email or get in contact with me.
...and I needed it...I'm stressed ya and overwhelmed.
I had shoots planned for all of last week and guess what?! They got cancelled because of the flippin' rain! Well...one didn't get cancelled. Remember my good friend Zephyr? She came to town with her boyfriend Wetiko. She asked me if I wanted to shoot and of course I said yes, but I told her that my head has not been in the best place creatively lately and I didn't have a clue what to do. Plus it was raining and I wouldn't have time to lockdown a place to shoot.
So, we shot in there home...mobile...short bus home...yep and it's dope ass fuck. They have a whole Youtube channel dedicated to their adventures and they actually included me in there most recent vlog!
The whole point of what I am trying to say is that when things start getting overwhelming and you start to not believe in humanity anymore...try to remember the people who count the most in your life. For me, seeing someone like Zephyr who I haven't seen in a long while was an amazing feeling. Finally, meeting Wetiko who is an amazing artist that I admire was needed. Talking to my sister and telling stories about our lives that are funny to help me through a frustrating situation was needed. Talking to my cousin and my two closest friends about a project I was having a hard time creating was needed...seeing my little girl and hearing her tell me she loves me was needed...
