A day of awesomeness. One of the greatest parts of being a photographer is traveling and exploring a new world.
“Ring Ring…Ring Ring” the alarm clock buzzed on my phone at 4:00am. Used to waking up at this hour, I was hardly effected, which is more than I could say for my night owl brother, Jamison, and cousin, Tanisse. After packing our light carry ons, we jumped in the car for six day trip.
We drove into the airport parking lot and passed the large LAX sign.
I stepped into the airport with my camera straps over my shoulders and breathed in, happily.
On the airplane I gazed outside, admiring the beautiful landscapes and imagined myself exploring, on a photo assignment, capturing the Earth for all to see. Additionally, I wrote in my notebook for ideas of my future.
Once my family and I arrived in Nashville, Tennessee, we hopped in a rental car and headed straight to Cracker Barrel- across from our hotel.
Now in the hotel, I borrowed two photography books from downstairs and- after a nice, warm shower- am writing in my journal.
Goodnight, my lovely followers, and wish me luck on my next journey to Kentucky.
Whoa whoa whoa. Now, when I heard that this woman had 700-1000 cats at her house, I thought she was mayyybeee exaggerating a bit. You know you have when you were talking about how many boyfriends you’ve had or how many first place trophies you have won.
Anyhow, Wow, if you live in the Central Valley, or plan on visiting California(And LOVE Cats) , definitely come on down to Reedley, California.
This lady has gave up her house to her kitties to make a No Kill Shelter. Want to adopt, sponsor, or volunteer at the shelter? Check out her website http://www.cathouseonthekings.com
She devotes her time for these furry little friends.
I am a volunteer at the Cat House on the Kings now, and I decided to show you some of the fuzzballs in the baby nursery
On Saturday, I shot set photographs for a music video which will be entered into a film competition. This specific contest is called a quick fire because we have 11 days in preproduction, production, and post production.
The morning of the shoot we met up at the Visalia Sports Park at 10:00 AM. My group arrived 15 minutes early and waited until the next car pulled up beside us. To everyone’s surprise, we had the same car-though different in year and colour- it sure did receive some chuckles.
Who wore it best?
After unloading the equipment, we walked down a dirt path and began setting up for the first scene.
While the actors got dressed, camera men put on the appropriate lenses.
And we were ready to shoot!
Hospital beeping fills my ears
Nurses say I’ll be here long.
After three months of life in here,
I am taken back home for care.
Nanny lies me in my crib to sleep
I just want mama to hold me tight.
I stay awake waiting for a peek
She never came, she never Did.
Tears for only Mama,
Nanny shoved a bottle in my mouth.
Mama I cry for you,
Why can’t you see?
Don’t take me for granted Mama,
I might not be here long
I’ve come to show you how to love,
Why don’t see me here for you?
Nanny takes me for my daily treatment
At the hospital that cares for me.
While you were having dinner
With a date, why can’t you see?
It’s fifth grade now
I made the volleyball team!
“Mom come and watch me play a game!”
“No honey, I’m too busy now” I hear not once, but twice a week.
I’m sick again mama,
the doctor says to me
Can’t you see?
My head is bear, so cold, you see
Why don’t you hold me in your arms?
Mama they say I have days left,
A teddy bear and balloons won’t do,
Why do you stay out with your friends?
While I am stuck here waiting for you?
Screaming and beeping fill my ears
I can’t see, but a blur.
Then I cease to move evermore
Where were you, Mama?
Why weren’t you there for me
All those years?
I just wanted your kisses, your hugs, your love.
You’re crying by my limp body, now
Regretting all those years
I finally see how much
I meant to you, and you saw how much you meant to me.
Another bumb in your belly,
Please don’t take her for granted as you took me.
And show her that you love her.
A child needs to see your love.
Don’t take her for granted, you won’t know how long she has.
