It’s been almost a year since I discovered photography and created this blog. It’s been a year since I decided to turn my life around and enjoy everything I did. It’s been quite an eventful year, and there were some totally unexpected bumps on the road that knocked the air out of me, but I’ve made it. And what’s more, I believe I’m a better person than I was twelve months ago, even if only because I’m aware of the things I need to change in my life. My New Year proposition is going to be “focusing on the bright side”. I have a hard time convincing myself that whether the glass is half full or half empty really depends on perception, on the way we choose to see it. But I have so many awesome things in my life, I feel ungrateful when I don’t appreciate them.
And of course, there’s NO WAY 2012 isn’t going to be the best year ever, since it’s starting off like this:
What do you know? Freedom’s finally here! She arrived this afternoon, after two excruciating weeks of waiting for her. I’ve finally gotten to shoot some photos that I’ve wanted to do for a year, like this one. These are actually three shots combined, because there just weren’t enough lights on the tree (and we would probably set it on fire if we added any more, LOL.)
