Being Nimble

I am going to my cousins movie premier this afternoon to see Being Nimble, by William “Bill” Forchion. I get to spend time with family and friends that I have not seen in a long time.  I will let everyone know how the movie was.  Although I am sure it will be excellent.

….UPDATE

Just came back from the premiere of Being Nimble.  The documentary was just as I expeced…Wonderderful! The take that I got from it was for each of us to pursue our dreams. 

It is about 13 students who attended New England Center for Circus Arts that wanted to perfect their craft in acrobats, hop dancing, tumbling, aerial fabrics and other things. It chronicled their student life for 9 months on the different things that they had to do and shows the growth at the end.

CONGRATULATIONS  BILL & SERENITY FORCHION

Today I tried to see if I could do a “bubble reflection” picture.  It worked but I do need to invest in a macro lens.  Photography is an expensive hobby. 

Let me know what you think…..

Dreams/Aspirations

We all have dreams and aspirations of what we want to be or do in life.  I discovered what I wanted to be when I hit my early 40’s, (better late than never) a Professional Nature Photographer.  Being a 2x Breast Cancer survivor I had to find a way to release some of my inner demons.  This was accomplished by taking long rides with my camera close by.  It was a true way to find some peace and comfort with my thoughts.  Relatives and friends even want to hang the pictures, my pictures,  in their house (their main living areas!) which was amazing to me so I decided to self-publish  my photos and to date I have made two books and even sold a few.

I look at some of the pictures that my “Twitter Friends” (ExpertVagabond, KenKaminesky)  have taken and they look truly amazing and it makes me want to do it even more.  It is just difficult to find enough time to truly work on the goals that I have set for myself.  How does one make the goals and stay focused on the goal/task at hand?  I am still struggling with this. 

Going forward I am going to take photos every weekend and post something new with a little bit of commentary on the photograph.

Til next time……
