I Was At The Door

One of my major regrets, in life, is not pushing myself earlier in the photography world.  There I stood, at the door, and instead of breaking it down to get inside I was softly knocking.  And, of course, when no one answered, I just went home, so-to-speak.

(Why does it take decades to realize what you should have done?)

I’m sure that I could have found ways to start my own business, back then.   Within me was the  knowledge; if only I would have been courageous enough to ask for help in getting started.  If only I could have believed in myself completely.

(Looking back makes me a little angry.  No, no, not “a little” angry—it makes me A LOT angry.)

Ultimately, here I am.  Trying my best to make a name for myself.  Doing what I can to not fail.   Discovering new things about myself and photography, everyday.

This profession is not easy.  The passion for photography, however, is effortless.   And, that is what drives me.  Regrets or not, I’m here because I’m doing what I love.

Photography, like blood, courses through my veins.
Photography, like succulent fruit, nourishes my body.
Photography, like a zen-filled breath, soothes my soul.
I can’t not photograph.
