WRITINGS 📝 | PHOTOGRAPHS 📸  Photographer / Streamer Los Angeles, California

Approaching our mid-20s and 30s, we're seemlessly busy trying to make something of ourselves. Whether that's with creativity, financial stability, or effort in correcting our wronged pasts, we mustn't get caught up in the "hustle" causing us to forget and smell the roses. Moments of bliss are needed to remind us what living is truly about. A friend and I talk about this and many other wholesome topics in our latest podcast. You can listen to it here - bit.ly/JNJTalks 🎙

I've been seeking calmness as of late. A retreat from obligation, from technology, from society...into isolation. Seeking solitude and privacy from the watchers of my world, disappearing into wilderness where those who speak are only heard by myself. Severance from tension and correlation with tranquility to once again find my whole Being. Calmness allow me to be. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Birthday to my dearest friend @sashadntsleep! Sasha was the first person I ever experimented portraits with and we've both exponentially grown creatively since then. I am so proud and honored to be this gentle souled, kind-spirited person's friend. Thank you so much for being in my life and the happiest birthday to you. Glad I could be apart of it (:

Don't settle for some boring shit of a person. Be with someone who excites you about life, who is not only passionate about their own decisions, but can also provide a thrill for you. A person who can convince you to have new experiences and shed light to your most dark and unseen corners. If you end up with a dull and lifeless piece of shit, you might as well declare yourself dry...and I'm not talking about your personality 😜

Choose who you want to be and ensure it's for you and nobody else. Identify the values and goals that work for you and if you don't know what those are, ask the ones around you. Question them, "Why do you even like me?" and depending on whether you appreciate that trait about yourself, absorb it. Master it as one of your best features and make everybody knows you for being that person. It's time to take yourself seriously, quit being a joke.

What we've accomplished in the past doesn't make us set the terms of who we are today. Every day is a new redemption of yesterday. Let the old you die with the start of a new day. All that you've succeeded in the past, determines the improvement you must execute today. I realized it's not about going back to my old self that has fulfilled much of what I am today, but to persist the reinvention of a newer self, one that makes the expired self proud.

I don't usually have an issue beginning or trying something new, but I do face challenges in excelling at undesirable tasks. If I don't find an activity enjoyable, it'll take a lot to persuade me to keep doing it, even if it's positively impactful to my health. I once taught myself to love everything I dislike and perhaps, I've lost sight of that since initially discovering how, but these patterns take time. It's time for me to revamp old habits and relearn past routines.

Like unexpected occurrences, anticipated occasions can flash past within an instant. Experiencing the too pleasurable present could make for seizing the moment undesirable. Perhaps it isn't always about holding onto the good and forgetting the bad. What happens when we're so lost in bliss we choose not to hold on? Could it be that the goodness we welcome, should also be disregarded to allow for exceptional flow, or do we proceed to capture every delight and shadow all distaste?

Dude, this is a rebirth of editing for me. Creating these, from what somebody called editorial styled photos, is extraordinarily refreshing. It brings new light to not only my photography and photo editing, but the placement and opportunity for arrangement of each photo. I will no longer see a photo as simply a capture moment of time, but actual documentation of my ability to create art. If anybody in the Los Angeles area is interested in creating similar forms of craft, don’t hesitate to message me! I am motivated to make some cool shit with some fresh faces.

I am reminded of my own vulnerabilty while engaging with others. Being open-minded, I’ve forgotten how remarkably concealed I was in the past, hiding every self-proclaimed flaw, to remain unseen by the divinities of my environment. I exposed myself as an experiment, eventually developing into my nature, so profuse I don’t recognize the difficulties others face in overcoming their own struggle. Take notice to the language of your peers, for you may learn more than they express. They’ll thank you this.

I actually spent a good two hours making this, evolving from a three photo edit to using just one. They’re honestly just white lines LOL but to organize them in a particular arrangement that satisfied me was not easy. I still don’t know if I like it, but I’m definitely okay with it. I’m going to continue editing not only photographs, but the arrangement of them and see where it takes me because some of you photographers I follow are very inspirational. Y’all crazy.
