Been slacking the last couple of days. Been traveling and working. Got back form Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last week. It was an amazing trip. The food and drinks were cheap. The scenery was beautiful. The people were friendly and warming. I am ready to go back! I was able to get some photo taking in while I was there. Shot ten rolls of film. Still processing them, but here are some of my favorites so far. You can also check out more photos from Puerto Vallarta by click the link right below this. IT is good to be back back blogging!
I have been going through some of my old photos. Looking at the hip-hop events, shows and people who attended around Wichita. Some are still with us, some aren’t. Feel very blessed to have been at the shows and events. Even more grateful that I was able to document them. So many times we have experiences and I hear people say, “I wish I would have taken a photo.” Well let me tell you, I try to make sure I take photos. You never know who might be there and who you might run into. So make sure and snap a photo or two next time you are out.
At the beginning of the year I had a goal. To average one roll of film every day. That means I am trying to shoot 365 rolls of film this year! So far I am up to about 23 rolls. Which is great, but I am falling behind. The hardest part is during the week. Much of time is spent in a radio studio or production room. So getting out is the hard part. Luckily I got out some over the weekend and was able to shoot some rolls. I will say when it gets warmer I am able to get in a lot more shooting. So for this early in the year I am doing pretty good. Here are some photos I took recently.
Every time I drive across town on the highway I look up. As I drive under a overpass I am looking for a quote. It says, “The Journey IS The Reward - Anonymous”. Such a true comment. But why does it hit so close to home for me? I think that for so long I wasn’t paying attention. Overlooking what is most important… which is the journey. The journey called life. I started taking more time to sit back and focus on being in the moment. Not about the past or the future, but about now. I see so many people passing through life, but not taking time to enjoy it. We run the race, run the race, run the race… then at the end of life we realize, there is no race. Over the years I have passed under that quote and thought about it a hundred times. It took me awhile, but now I finally understand. It is all about the journey.
