Posts Tagged ‘dreams’

The second picture below of a dilapidated chapel sign is interesting to me.  The tag line reads “We’ve only just begun.”  Well, it is clearly done but this sign has made me pause and think about my short journey into photography.  I, too, have only just begun.  When I think of all the things that has to be done to set up shop, I honestly feel paralyzed.  And perhaps fear is also playing a part.  I wonder how many dreams have been thrown away?  Like the chapel sign, how many dreams have ended up in a “boneyard” because fear suffocated the desire to follow those dreams?  One way to allay fear is to be brutal about setting goals.  Goals provide a vision for how you want to achieve something.  Without setting down goals, then you become directionless.   I like this old expression, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any path will get you there.”  Could it be that a dream never takes off because we have not taken the time to set goals and act on those goals?  If a goal is never set, then you will certainly feel lost and that’s when fear creeps in and takes over.

Speaking of just beginning and chasing dreams, the model in these pictures is none other than the beautiful (you’ll see what I mean) Jessie Poole.  Jessie hails from Virginia Beach, VA.  This was pretty cool because Virginia Beach is part of the Hampton Roads area where I lived for three years.  Jessie just plain rocked this shoot.  I didn’t take too many wide shots of her.  I wanted to showcase her natural beauty by taking a lot of portrait shots.  Jessie was even a good sport in the last image when I asked her to do what the Japanese love to do when getting their pictures taken: the peace sign!!  Thanks for modeling for us, Jessie and hope to see you in December when I’m back in the States.
