Went to the Los Angeles Auto Show for the first time last Sunday. I was mostly there to find interesting pictures to take and not really to check out the cars like my friends were. They spent forever ogling cars and looking at all the little details of each car. Normally I wouldn’t mind so much, but I didn’t get any sleep the previous night and if I didn’t stop moving around I would have knockout on the spot. So I ended up separating myself from the group to do my own thing, which I prefer especially if I want to take photos.
Photography for me is an art form. I get anxious when people are hovering over me or watching me as I photograph. I feel as though I’m not really able to let my mind explore and capture what I truly wanted. So being on my own is an ideal situation when shooting, most of the time at least (unless I’m shooting a human subject, of course). I was able to capture a lot of great shots & some of my favorites weren’t even of cars.
We need to move away from this constant need of coming across as calm, cool and collected. WE WEREN’T BUILT TO BE CALM, COOL, AND COLLECTED. If we were, it wouldn’t feel so exhausting all the time….
Last week, I turned 24. It’s kind of wild to think that I’m in my mid-twenties now. It has made me stop and think about what I’ve actually done with my life, what I’ve learned, and what I could do more of. So I made a list of things that I want to do more of:
I was going to try to think up 24 things to do, but I kind of ran out of ideas. Basically the overall message of this list is to DO MORE. I feel I’ve been a little creatively lazy lately (as is apparent from my lack of posts on this blog, which is partially due to the fact that I’m working 3 jobs, but that’s besides the point). Here’s to doing more (hopefully this momentum last)!
