Note to self: travel near & far, take notes, make memories and chase dreams. after all we’re not here for a long time. this day was pretty interesting. i drove for about 3 1/2 hours to this spot in oregon meeting up with buddy along the way. we hit the trail not really knowing where we were going because either of us planned it out lol. we should of done some research (add that to note). we shot around, talked with strangers and enjoyed the view. let’s back up before we got to the waterfall. we had to (we should of did some research) (dually noted) park about a mile down some dirt road because it was getting a bit rough and didn’t think my truck could make it. i should of just threw it in 4x4, we could of made it. while at the falls we met up with this rad dude and photographer (can’t remember his name) and asked if he could give us a ride back to my truck. he agreed and we were on our way. heading back we talked about our similar interested and dislikes. driving down the trail he shared some of his photos he had previously taken on his website and we were stoked on how good this guy was. we asked if he had an instagram so we could check it work out on future adventures and he replied he didn’t have one. shocked to the both of us we asked why. he said he wasn’t getting the feed back, likes and exposure he wanted and was discouraged from the whole scene. i have felt the same way and still to this day do. he dropped us off at my truck and i headed to drop my buddy off. i still had 3 hours to drive till i got home.
I have been in a slump. i don’t exactly know why. maybe it’s because work hit hard after a summer of travel. maybe it’s because i couldn’t run for so long and didn’t have the outlet that normalizes me. maybe it’s because every year i grow older, another year of new things become the “same old things.” whatever the reason, i noticed things that normally bring life to me seemed to dull, break away and fizzle out; but, slowly — some days, achingly slow — things are becoming vibrant again. i don’t know what to think about seasons of life such as these, but i do trust, years from now, i’ll look back and see all the things i learned during this time, and be very thankful.
Go for whatever makes you happy.. #streetphotography#vscogram#visualsoflife#instagood#photogenic#justgoshoot#peoplescreatives#modernoutdoors#vsco#vscogood#vscocam#photoshoot#beautifuldestinations#folkindonesia#like4like#photooftheday#creative#outdoors#livefolk#liveauthentic#liveoutdoors#travels#nature#exploretocreate#passionpassport#peoplescreatives#welltravelled#modern#visual#artofvisuals#roamtheplanet.
