I get so caught up in my own pit of self pity that I forget I still have a place on this earth.
I feel like a Lighthouse would enjoy great weather way more than the rest of us. I mean that if a light house was an actual human of course. Like imagine having to stand on guard every moment of every hour of every day, ready at all times to lead people home?
You don’t get to move, or leave, or take a break. You just have to do your job, all the time with no questions asked.
You are single-handedly responsible for keeping people off the rocks that could lead to them crashing and drowning to their death. What kind of responsibility is that?
I feel like, on good weather days (Days without a potential storm in the middle of the night) that a lighthouse must feel some sort of overwhelming peace. A relaxation that only a factor that is out of our control yet leading toward the side of caution can grant. A peace so freeing that you can’t help but feel alive.
A Lighthouse must love days with a great weather forecast.
If a light house was a human of course…
Thank you for reading this

I know I used to post a few times a week. I’m sorry I don’t anymore.
You see, when I had absolutely nothing and felt like a total failure without a purpose I stumbled across a camera.This camera took me on a journey of self discovery. I learned things about my abilities and my passions. I found a new perspective and new outlook through my current perspective. I learned, I grew, and I expressed the things I saw and the things I experienced. I pushed myself for more and grew a whole lot.
That was 3 years.
Today, I am a totally different person than I was then. I become what I pursued and dreamnt bigger dreams because of it. I still use that camera everyday. It allows me to see.
I started a non profit organization to help others like me. To help people who felt/feel like me. To inspire humans to love each other and express them selves.
I owe a lot of this to my camera and to this blog.
It was here I was able to express. We all deserve to be able to express ourselves.
I’m @npegg and I have a camera.
Wasn’t really much for waterfalls. I mean, I get that they are awesome, but I just never felt a desire to go and photograph them. The other day I was feeling kinda down, so I asked Sarah if she wanted to go on a photography adventure. She said “yes” and that made me super happy.
luckily there is a cool waterfall liek 3 mins from her house. So we went there. Albion falls, in Hamilton Ontario.
My goal was to shoot a timelapse. As I’ve already shot a long exposure here before and it came out purple thanks to my 3 dollar ND filters.
I started from the bottom (like drake)
Then tried the top.
Taking roughly 20 min time lapses at each. 4 second intervals.

Today, I turned down a Job opportunity.
I don’t actually have a real job, so that was probably a bad idea.
I turned down 35k a year. ( which is significant in comparison to my 12k a year I’m making now)
I guess, I’m just not into money.
Maybe I’m into funding however.
Money is a tool to help you get other tools, so you can accomplish a goal.
Money is not a net that catches you when everything falls apart.
Money is a mirage.
Maybe life is a mirage too.
Anyways, I said no to an opportunity that was big. However, by doing that I through myself blind into something much, much bigger.
This photo would fit well into a project aimed around the ideas of “commitment” or a series on “North American Living”. ironically of course.
This was a sign outside what seemed to be a small, walk in, walk out law office in the lower east side of Manhattan.
Walking around with my Nikon AF600 (a small point a shoot 35mm camera) while waiting to play a concert at a small venue, I spotted the sign. Having no idea how to photograph it though. I walked up and took a picture of it for my own personal memory, knowing the composition would hold no value. Later, however, after developing the roll, I noticed that I accidentally captured a bus with a American Flag on the side. This, I think, adds some sort of value to the image. Leading one to impose an idea of a downfall in North American culture as to the idea that divorce as become a way of life and a cultural norm. I think that it speaks to the area of commitment and instant gratification all at the same time.
I think it’s a neat picture.
Shot on some expired Blacks 200iso film that I found at a thrift shop. the best thing about this film is that it has the processing included. Free developing. Go team!
anyways, thanks for reading.
