I have not done much in past few weeks. However, I managed to catch up with films which I shot a while back. I sent them to develop then scan some of them. I also have gone around with my now most used camera, a Yashica T-4 35mm point an shot. It have made me realize once again about why I was interest into photography at the first place. It made me feel as if I was at the sea and the ocean wind touches my face. Yes it feels so good. I only interest in the moment while I use the camera while at the same time it would be hard if I want to capture the moment with my large format. I think that this is a part of being an artist that we keep doing things, changing things, and do it over again countless time.
This is what I photographed while I was in Zion national park last fall. It is not so straight nature shot as my usual works, but it is now my thing that I look for when I am on the road look for images.
Everything is good here. I have not felt as calm as I am at the moment before. So now I start to believe that as we are get older things also get easier. while I have conversation with friends and others I usually mention about the way to live life that we have gotten to live it the fullest. I usually make myself to go where I want to go, and do what I want to do now. I don’t know that tomorrow would ever come, but surely today I know I am living. Someday, I feel like driving so I may go for around town, and sometime I go for 200 or 300 miles. It is only matter of time.
Last 2 months I had thought about time, life, and spending time with people I love a lot like never before. Before, I have thought of it time to time, but the last 2 months I thought it very hard about what is really important in life then the tsunami hit Japan. I am deeply sad to what had happen. Lost of people there would never get the second chance, from the news 25,000 lives lost. I knew then that I want to go home to see my parents. I quit my job and now I have less than 10 days to fly back home.
There will be a lot to share with you all with my new toy, and my new tool would capture a lot of moments that I always missed.
There are lot of things we want to do. Now it is time to get it done one at a time. I too will do just that.
p.s When you love someone make sure that they know you love them. Telling them everyday coz there might not be tomorrow.
