Encores, Red Bellies, and Mindsets.

April 28, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Having some time on my hands is a double edge sword. Sadly, my brain does not work like most. For the last ten years I have been focused on data and analytics and putting it all together to have a comprehensive understanding in order to determine operational directions. 

Big words from a dumb farm kid, but it was reality. Not having that in my life currently has been difficult and finding new focuses has been key in keeping my sanity. Recent focuses have been revamping my website and working on SEO goals and that has been gaining ground. I also have been out and about more doing my favorite thing, which is simply enjoying the outdoors and spending some time behind the camera and receiving the gifts I have been given. 

SO the focus is creating fine art, for print sales, and pet photography. You ask why pets? Well to be honest with you, its because in todays day and age, I enjoy dogs, horses, etc. more than I do people. Sounds terrible right? A short time ago, I took a look in the mirror and did not like the person who was staring back at me. The change was simple. I realized that no one around me really impressed me and life has taught me that when those conditions exist, that circle of who is around you which contains low quality human beings, is in reality a cage. Fact is, Most people will do whatever it takes to ensure their own stable paths, and when they can get help from those who are willing, they will accept the help. When the shoe is on the other foot, they do little to assist. I myself have a problem with liars. I really have a problem with liars when my life is impacted. Experience has shown me that limited involvement with people is your best direction because once trust is broken, its like a shattered mirror. You can glue it together but the cracks still exist. 

You will always have to deal with people. especially when you are offering goods and services, and I really do not want to sound anti social but there needs to be an understanding of just how far you go. I myself have had to do some pretty shitty things that i regret doing and the old saying if I only knew what I know now, comes into full circle. The difference is I never lied, even though I knew the impacts of my actions would impact the life of one, while assisting the life of another. 

Does any of this resonate with you? 

Anyways, the whole point of my post is to simply say, that mindset plays a big part and looking at the positives, my path has lead me to encounters with creatures and for the first time in a while I am able to decompress and enjoy the little moments that are really what makes up life.

Same pond, but clearly this beauty has other spots he like's to visit.

Doing my own little operation dumbo drop but this will be for me. 

 

Enjoy the images, and expect more for the future. 

Contact me if you have a pet you want to photograph, its what I do now, and apparently I am pretty good at it. 

Be, stay, blessed
