Like what you see so far, this photo is the product of consistent practice and focus. It takes work to make winter time things look inviting, I’m proud. I made a promise to myself to use my camera at least once a day, just to get more comfortable behind the camera. I sought out people who were talented behind the camera and took their tips, researched and simply practiced to get to where I am today. I am not saying I’m this amazing photographer as of yet, but my goal isn’t to be some famed photographer, it’s moreso to get comfortable behind the camera. Which has been liberating and has even given me more confidence in my talents and who I am.
The following photos were also taken during the winter, at the beach, but again, it looks oh so inviting. Please enjoy the wonderful fruits of my labor.
Stairway to heaven
Leading to the abyss…
Rock and Roll
The following photos are ones I took of these adorable children in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. It was a hot day, a fun day. Music was blasting and the neighborhood was jumping with summertime joy! I was lucky enough to witness this group of adorable kids who were just feeling the music and wanted to dance. I do believe they were the children of Gypsies, but not the ones from Romania who are typically given a bad reputation throughout Europe, the true gypsies, the nomads whom have a very interesting history that you can start to read up on here. Either way, they lit up the esplanade and brought their pure innocence and added joy to the already amazing day.
