WOW! Have I been one busy bee! Totally thanking God and not complaining AT ALL! Busy to me, is always a great thing. :] I've been blessed with a few challenging 'Off The Hook Design' TM orders and having a blast creating and recreating some pretty awesome stuff for some pretty rocking peeps. :]
I've also been a bit busy with some interesting Photography excursions as of late. I can't say I am in a position at this very moment to make a living solely on my Photography~ Which is why I am very grateful I have other interest & ways of earning that make me equally as happy :] I can say with conviction and strength that I will never again in my lifetime work a job for someone other then me. I will earn my living doing something I love and I will love living my life while earning my living. ............. I do however very much enjoy getting out there and shooting people on the streets. It's the most interesting activity I've ever decided get out there and just ...well....do.......I can't really explain the feeling of passion I have for this 'sport'~ but I highly recommend any brave soul to try it ....even just once. Get out there and meet & greet & shoot! You will be very happy you did. Either that or you will be very angry that I suggested this to you. :] People are people no matter what street you are on or what part of the world that street happens to be. Some will welcome you with open arms & some will not wish you to bother them and/or especially shoot them & they are usually the ones to let those feelings known in not so nice terms. It's a slippery slope that should be considered with caution, care and compassion for others as well as your own safety and well being. Personally, I enjoy the challenge & the absolute confidence it takes to achieve the shot that I have in my minds eye. I feel so energized and accomplished when I am able to achieve what I have set out to do and overcome any obstacle or fear that may be placed along my path. It's funny because I have lacked confidence for all of my life....in just about every area. It's only been since I've seriously implemented the tools and God given talents into my life that I have been able to truly feel confident about what I do....but not only that, where I am going and who I am as a person today as well as an artist. I think too since I'm older-ish now~ I'm heading into~but not quite there yet, the big 50. I've experienced life with all it's good parts and bad. I've seen perfectly healthy people pass on with so much more potential then they ever had courage to achieve in their lifetime....& I am fully aware that life is precious and in a blink of an eye, over. Why live a life of fear and insecurity that prevents one from living fully when we only have what amounts to minutes really, to live it? I say live your life fearlessly and with passion & purpose!! Better sooner then later. Speaking of passion and purpose.

So on this Monday, among the many half & almost finished projects I have laying here in front of me, along side all of the post production work I wish to complete before the end of this glorious day~ I've decided to take a short break and come say hello to YOU! Because I realize as well that we should all take the time to make every single person we come in contact with, feel special and part of our world. This is my way of making that happen.
While I do promise my next post will contain some pretty amazing pictures, I can not promise that I will be back tomorrow or even the next day...but just know that I am here living my life to it's very fullest and squeezing in as much HAPPINESS I can. I hope you do the same.
I leave you with one more image of my beautiful girls J & T :] Just because they look so cute together all dressed up for this years Halloween Party♥
Peace and Love,
