Is it broken?

After jumping off the stage at the end of his set… Marcel, Lead vocals and guitar of band called Die Hexe , announced to the audience that he thought he broke his ankle.

For the rest of the show, he was be asked probably around 100 times.. if it was broken..

no word yet from the doctor whether or not it is actually broken.. but pretty punk rock regardless of the outcome.

Great Weather For A LightHouse

IMG_9069.jpg

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…

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.

Hope.

Brent.

June 30th it rained.

Had my camera and a small tripod, while stopping at my dads house. Glanced and saw some lightning in the distance. Originally, I wanted to take some slow shutter/long exposures of the fireflies that were lazily drifting above the grass. But that idea quickly warped into some sort of lighting shot before the rain hit.

With no bug spray, I decided to embark on the patient, trial and error task that is capturing lighting.

Placing the camera almost on the ground, I originally composed a shot with our front mailbox, and a wind turbine in the back ground, in hopes that the lighting would strike in frame to create a very cool image.

After, missing a handful of lighting strikes with that composition, I decided to switch it up and go for the lighting, as the storm was moving east quite quickly.

While many attempts were made, this was the closest I came to anything spectacular.

After dropping this camera down a mountain, I’ve started wrestling with light leaks. Some may say that Light leaks are creative and artsy, but not when you are trying to take a non-lightleaked photo..Duhh.

This was one of the few on the roll that was not affected. Haven’t really figured out why yet.

Thank you so much for following, and reading my blog.

A Black and White Winter.

Recently, and by that I mean over my entire time with a camera, I’ve been the biggest fan of black and white photography. However, side note, I’ve been trying my best to capture colour and sharpness and stepping away from the black and white trend, also because when you black and white a photo it hides a few imperfections and makes super amateur photographers (like myself) look a slight bit better than they actually are.

ANYWAYS! – here are a few landscape black and white’s that I’ve taken throughout this extremely cold southern Ontario Winter.
