Photographer's Rant - C'mon, Take a Picture.

Time for another visual tour through 
the streets of Portland. 
I've shamefully been absent from the camera & 
felt the need for a photographer's rant.

I could've very easily blame the weather, working 
the gig or the cat peeing on my 
homework...but I'm not. 
Just need a little motivation from time 2 time. 
Nothing wrong with that.
When you have the passion for the capture & create, 
nothing gets in the way.
It's just a matter of time.
Anyways, took a trip on over the the 
lighthouse for that money shot. 
I've heard great things about this spot 
& needed 2 see for myself. 
It's not easy making a simple lighthouse dynamic. 
After all, it's a lighthouse...but I'll work on it.
Afterwards headed over through the 
main vein of Portland. 
Congress Street.
This is where you can appreciate living in a small town over a major city.
The structures are more honest & simple 
which could make the photography
 a little extra interesting.
It's the simple point & shoot with that 
personal touch in which 
every photo is awesome... 
in its own way.
Not knowing the end result until it slaps you 
in the face is what makes this 
fancy so much enjoyable. 
Everyone is a photographer for it's all about the perspective man...

So go on ahead.... 
Take a picture.


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

I couldn't ask for anything more 
in regards 2 son Khalid. 
People have shared horrid stories about the trails & tribulations of raising a 16 year old  
but thus far on this end, I'm set...
(So I like 2 think.)
I can remember when I was 16 when everything was confusing but still I believed I knew it all. 
Poor choices were made & petty matters were more difficult than they had 2 be...
so looking at it from that perspective, yeah, we're good.

I know young people need 2 have a personal choice for empowerment 
but remember I'll always be dad.ZZReadily available 2 teach you about the things you're not so sure about even if I don't even know myself,  protect you from the ills of this increasingly nasty world & just be THERE.

It's getting stranger by the minute & a whole lot going on in theses times so 
it's best 2 be that way. 
Would you think?

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)
