best advice i got today. but i’m not sure who i am anymore. yes, i am a photographer. yes, i am a good photographer. i am also a daughter. i am kind to most people. but i’m finding that what i thought i wanted, and what i really want are becoming two different things. change is hard, but i’m trying. i’m stuck between wanting to fit in with x people, when i really want to fit in with y. life is weird. i wish i believed that going somewhere else, someplace new, and starting over could really change things. but if i can’t change things here, how would i be able to do that in a brand new place with no familiar faces? i’ve got a plan going for december. it’s not set it stone. it’s not even an option for me at this point. but it’s something to keep in mind. that greater goal.

So, I made a post earlier on my personal blog about being bummed that a cell phone picture of mine had more notes than a photo of 2 very influential musicians and a comment was posted on it about iphone photographers and this is my rant on ‘iphone photographers’
traditional banner over my knee. or maybe a banner/frame that’s more ornate. that says either:
semper eadem, which means “always the same”.
age quod agis, which means “do what you are doing”. more often translated as “do well whatever you do”, literally translated it means, “drive because you are driven”, figuratively it means, “keep going because you are inspired or dedicated to do so.”
well an internship. but it’s about to open so many doors for me. thank god i have a stack of business cards, a nice camera, connections, and talent. say hello to the new event photographer for 701. i’ll also be creating an archive system for their(and soon to be my) photos! they always have so much going on, so i’m going to constantly be busy doing what i love.
