"Uncomfortably numb"
------------------------------------------
If you asked me how I felt today I'm not sure how I'd answer. Part of me couldn't let go of that anxious feeling you get before something weird might happen, if that makes any sense...but the other part of me went out and did something i love with friends that I also love around me. It was a mixture of the good and the bad, I think the good won the day. 🌳 Shallow depth of field isn't something I mess with often but the low light called for it. ------------------------------------------

"You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward." ------------------------------------------
I have writers block with my photography as of recently. The pictures are not coming out the way I want them too and I keep having to remind myself why...over a decade behind the lens has taught me that no matter what you know about your camera and what you're shooting, it all comes down to what you don't know. That's the part that keeps me moving forward. Get out of what you're comfortable with and learn something new. This is why I find it so important to work with the creative minds around me. Let's shoot people, help me get out of this funk. I want to see something new. ------------------------------------------

"Walking with a friend in the dark is better then walking alone in the light" Helen Keller said it best ------------------------------------------
Last night I had an opportunity to shoot with some other photographers. More importantly I was able to collaborate with some people willing to flex their heads And try something new. Light painting was the default for the night and I had a killer time with some great people doing it. I can't express how nice it was to shoot with some new people. I have much to improve on with this technique but I can't wait to do more! if any of you photographers want to collaborate let's talk! And thanks again to @derekquinn @lcqu1nn @redfox5ive @ryliejobe and Chad for the fantastic time! Happy Easter, Be sure to not wake up in a cave after a wicked night of binge drinking....I bet A.D. Hangovers were crazy! ------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #lightpainting #nightphotography #longexposure #longexpo_addiction #nikon

"the mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one seventh of its bulk above water" ------------------------------------------ I've been thinking a lot about what I would write for this picture, it would probably be safe to say that I over thought it. I caught myself spinning in circles over how I could relate to this beautiful dream like spring scene and how a quote could help me describe my thoughts. That's when I remembered the Sigmund Freud quote i quoted above. He was a neurologist from mid 1800's to 1939 when he passed way. What a perfect way of describing my inability to put words to this photograph then the words of Someone with a greater understanding of how the mind works, especially in the dream world. It's Sunday folks, the end of one week And the start of another. It's time to clear my head. ------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #pines #submerged #reflections #townerswoods #isthisadream

"She stood at the top of the path.  Cold but the ice was finally melting. She pondered, admiring the verdant green of the moss. Which way to go. Down over the roots and rocks into the darkness. Or up. Over the cavern toward the sunlight.  One mysterious. One sure." -----------------------------------------
I've been thinking a lot about the paths I take. I find myself second guessing myself less and my thoughts are more clear. Metaphorically I feel my path is always marked the right way, but physically I always have two options. Either up or down the both take me to the same place with different (but similar) circumstances. That's about all the thought my Monday mind can handle... The writing above was gifted to me by the lovely @hails_yeah33 This beautiful spot can be found at the nelson ledges state park. ------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #rocks #nelsonsledges #grow #roots #depthoffield

"Change your opinions, keep to your principals; change your leaves, keep intact your roots"
------------------------------------------
Change is something I welcome into my life, it hasn't always been that way. I find it way to easy to hang on to the things I believe and the morals I live by. But, Sometimes it's okay for me let Loose and step out of myself. For better or worse my leaves are changing and that's all the more reason to remember how far I've come. Just like this tree...I was a seed once, and just like this tree I had no idea how much I could grow and how beautiful my leaves could become. There's a lesson in there somewhere. I hope you guys/girls had a wonderful Monday. ----------------------------------------

"Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition." ------------------------------------------ I don't know where I belong but I'll always know that no matter where I end up this will be home. I love Ohio and everything it has to offer. When Matt and I set out for a hike/photo adventure I didn't expect to find what we did. I loved every minute of Nelsons ledges state park but this was one of my favorites. Even though we all know trees don't belong on cliffs...this little guy is showing us that "home is where you make it". ------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #rocks #nelsonsledges #bigrocks #home #knowyourroots

Afraid of nothing but the shadow he casts he moves forward with little grace and hardly any direction...but sure he was. Despite the unknown path ahead he moved with confidence knowing that he himself was the only one holding him back. Camera in hand, he moved surely step by step in one direction. ready to show the world the only thing he had to offer. ---------I love this picture, I've put off posting it for a long because I was having issues making it look right. I ended having to crop out the bottom because of some logs in water just looked out of place. but, for the real reason why I posted this...I think today will be my last day as a "on paper" professional photographer. It's a bitter sweet goodbye to a profession I was born to pursue. Fear not my friends, this will only open my time for personal shoots which in return will bring you more content! Happy Sunday friends, here's to a brighter future! ------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #fog #ltownerswoods #reflections #betteryourself #island

"We are nothing but space dust, trying to find its way back to the stars."- Love and space dust -----------------------------------------
It's Saturday, I have a lot to accomplish on my short day off. But first I'm going into the woods to take some pictures of a super cool product. I feel most at home in the woods and I miss spending most of my time there so going back today should be awesome...add a camera and It becomes euphoric. I can't wait. Do you ever think about how atoms and molecules get pushed and passed around? The way I see it, the star dust I'm made out of could
Have totally been the same star dust that a dinosaur or some other ancient species was made out of as well. If you don't think that's cool then you're uncool yourself😝 have a great day everyone,enjoy the sunshine and take some cool pictures. ------------------------------------------

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment" my good friend Buddha sticks this in my head almost daily as of recently. But tonight I want to reminisce on the past and put my self at the lakes edge on a beautiful, warm Ohio day day dreaming of future endeavors... As im getting older (still a young gun👉) I see most of my good friends leaving Ohio to pursue something important to them. It's great to see. but I wonder when my name will be called and I can escape the Ohio bubble. I'm open to opportunity but I feel like I'm not putting enough into the pot to get a taste of life. I need motivation and the motivation I had was directed by old friends...the ones that are all disappearing. Bottom line though, I'm thankful for all the support and friends I have and I love all of your beautiful faces!With that being said can we all agree that sometimes looking back at the past isn't that bad?--------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #winter #townerswoods #hikeoffthebeatenpath #dontforgetwhereyouhavebeen #3rdperson

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls" ~Picasso in all my time as a photographer I've never had such a hard time finding things to bring to the table of the art world. Between the people that view my work disagreeing with the subject to people who judge me based off what I shoot, it been a roller coaster of experiences. ----Here you see a beautiful piece of glass done by @dto_glass and @localhoneyglass locally in Kent Ohio. this glass is more then just a pipe...it's art. Every form of art should be given the recognition it deserves. Even if it promotes something you disagree with.We all have our own creative outlets, quit bashing other people art. If you don't like, move on. Sorry again folks for not posting more. Between "writers block" and a new job making adjustments has been a time consuming process. I love you all and have a wonderful Saturday ❤️---------------------------------------------#honeyglass #honeygun #nectorcollector #glassporn #artglass #dabstagram #dabs #glassguns #710life #710society #glasscollectors #glasslife #bestofglass #420 #asseeninkent #glassofig #glassart #glassporn #hightimes #headyart #nikon #kent #ohio #iwillshootyourglass #lightbox #letmeshootyourproduct

"A man is not rightly conditioned until he is happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with his surroundings." Take the steps necessary to make yourself the the person you want to be. Everyday I'm learning and everyday I realize that I'm the only holding my self back from happiness, a healthy lifestyle, and prosperity. That's going to change...Surround yourself with the people and the things that mean the most to you and you'll start to find life a little more enjoyable. I really feel that I truely won't be content with where I am and what I'm doing until all three of Those voids are filled...it's not to late to make 2017 my bitch.so, here's to a brighter future and self made success. Side note: Lila is my favorite dog on this planet, as always major thanks to @lcqu1nn and @redfox5ive for bringing their four legged daughter on every hike. --------------------------------------------------------#ohio #ohiogram #hiking #hike #nature #naturalohio #ohioexplored #myohioadventures #natureshots #ohiophotographer #outdoors #outdoorsadventures #hikeohio #naturephotography #nature_perfection #naturegram #naturelovers #natureaddicts #naturesbeauty #scenic #roamohio #discoverohio #explore #letsroamohio #discover #winter #thegorge #hikingwithdogs #germanshepherd #thisisnotmycouch
