Pointing out unexpected colors in everyday life

The dreamer

Long long time ago, maybe even in a galaxy far away, I discovered a camera. It was already quite old, but it was awesome. The finder was on a side, and I could look from above and take photos of people unaware of what I was doing. I loved those photos. I stashed them in a box, with negatives and memories of my brief dark room experience. I loved those moments of time captured “forever”. Then I left. I moved into far away lands and by the time I visited again, my precious box was gone. I lost my treasure. “Forever” dissolved into nothing.
   Then another part of my past, just like that little box, disappeared in an unusual way.
    But I kept my camera. She traveled with me wherever I went. Eventually I traded it for a more modern model. Ultimately I swapped the stillness and simplicity of an image for a craze of a filmmaking and while I may have lost the resolution, I found motion and sound,
                                     …and new memories.

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”

You have to make almighty decisions when you’re the creator. Use what you see, don’t plan it. Now we don’t want him to get lonely, so we’ll give him a little friend. There isn’t a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you. I guess I’m a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That’s okay though; I have more fun than most people.
