I Have A Passion

I don't know how to start. I open the blog. Start a new draft. Change around the title a few times. Turn on some music. Run downstairs to grab some food. Come upstairs and scroll through Instagram. Reopen the blog. Think. Strain. Wonder. "How Do I Start?" 

And the answer to that is, "I have no idea"

Where do I start?

Not the beginning. That would bore you.

Not the future. I have no idea what that's going to look like.

My only choice is to start right here. This moment. This life. This point in time where I am sitting on my bed, dreaming of roaming the world and capturing all the beauty it has to offer.

Many of you know I take pictures. Lots of pictures. That is probably how you ended up at this blog. 

Most people don't know the reason why I do what I do. I am still discovering the exact reasons why.  What I do know, is that photography is something I am extremely passionate about.

I can't explain it. When I pick up my camera, it seems like a whole new world emerges in front of me. Opportunities to create. To make something beautiful. To inspire someone. To tell a story. To freeze time for a 1/1000 of a second. To imprint a moment on a digital memory card forever.

It thrills me. It makes me long to see more of the world through my camera. It makes me feel like I'm living.

That is why I do what I do. 

Guys! I want to make a photography part of my future. I want to do this full time. I want everyone to know that I am taking this seriously. Motivating myself to do better and setting goals for myself to achieve to make this happen.

Thank you all for your support as I continue this journey. I hope this helps you understand a little bit more into why I spend days of my life traveling and capturing moments.
