There is a clear line between cocky and confidence. It’s not always a bad thing to have one foot on each side.

One of my favourite movies growing up was “The Sandlot”. There’s a scene where the kids go to an amusement park and they have Tobacco chew(if you haven’t seen it, it’s a baseball related movie). They get on this roller coaster and the chew makes them all throw up while they’re on the ride. Hilarious scene. Well, when I was a kid I didn’t know what tobacco chew was, I thought it was beef jerky. I asked my mom to buy beef jerky and I reenacted the scene and chewed the beef jerky and pretended to throw it up. That was the day my mom stopped buying me beef jerky.. Hah. Anyway, in the movie one of the kids jumps a fence to get a baseball they hit over it and lookin at this picture reminded of that movie and then this childhood memory. Good morning.

This post was supposed to be for this blog but I accidentally put it on my other one.. Ya’ll can follow that too.

We always complain about change then the next day we get used to it.. I haven’t  decided what the good and the bad things are about that yet. I’ll let you know when I’ve made up my mind.

I hope there is some value in the things that I say and write about. I am still young and have so much more of life to live but if there is one thing that I feel is valuable for me to say to another person is this… You matter. If I’ve met you or if you follow me or if I follow you or if I’ve had any form of contact with you.. Know that you matter to me.

I’ve compiled everything I’ve written over the past 10 years that I feel I could share with everyone and compile it all into a little book. It’s quite a sobering experience realizing that half of everything I’ve ever written over the course of a decade only takes up 50 pages on a MS Word document.. 50. I got a lot more living and a lot more writing to do. But these first 50 pages I hope to offer to you soon..

I just want people to know, to really understand how much they matter. I want people to feel like they are free to run in any direction. That is what I strive for.

How often do you just shoot by yourself
by Anonymous

EVERYDAY. I try and bring my camera out with me even if I’m working at my job for the majority of my day. At any time of the day is still an opportunity to photograph. Honestly, 30-40% of the photographs I take in a month go straight to the trash bin and sometimes an entire day of photographing I won’t even use for anything. That’s taking into consideration that more than half the time I’m experimenting with different ways to photograph and different ways of editing. I don’t consider that 30-40% of photographs I don’t use as a waste because I’ll have learned something out of those photos. It’s all about being responsible for your own development. Long exposures aren’t really my thing, but I’ll take some every now and then just to experiment. If you never try then you’ll never know!

Caught up with my daughter Angela the other day. It’s funny people at her high school really thought I was her actual dad.
