#instantdorkoriginal : Sutra Bathhouse Ruins

I'm pretty happy with myself. I went to an Instagram meet by myself yesterday. My partner in crime lately left to SoCal and I didn't want to miss out so I decided to go and I am so glad I did. I reconnected with three photographers I met last Saturday and met even more amazing photographers. It's amazing what surrounding yourself with people who can understand your craft or passionate hobbies can do to your work. I met models, and more photographers that I've admired their work for a while and It's pretty awesome! It pushes my limits and makes me want to get better. 

So, here's my second attempt at long exposure twinkling lights.

#instantdorkoriginal: graffiti alleyway

  Another instameet! I was excited to hear that BoskOak had a photography walk going on in the city and decided to go. I'm glad I did too, since I met quite a few awesome people. Here's just two shots I got that day since I accidentally deleted my stuff and had to retrieve it and now, they're in a different format. Sigh. Anyway, I hope to bring out more content, even if it's old for me, I need new eyes to see it.

  The summer feels like it's coming to a close and winter will be soon upon us and with that, dinner parties of all sorts! I've been picking amazing items that can be used around the office. And as always, I have linked the items above.

shadows of the day

  It was a very sobering day for me on Thursday. I learnt that Chester Bennington, the lead singer for Linkin Park committed suicide.

  My mind was abuzz with feelings, new and old, with song lyrics, with a kind of hurt that was unexpected.  When I was grieving my mom, I dissected the lyrics in most of their songs and I felt connected to them. Chester's voice helped me develop and overcome my emotions and to know that he committed suicide makes me so very sad.

  I guess, I just want to say that, ceasing to exist may seem very alluring. Being away from your hurt, your emotions that seem to be jumbled up may keep the pain away... or shutting out all the hurt and never having to hurt again seem like the best idea.  But someone will always hurt when you're gone. Someone out there can relate to you in one way or another. You aren't alone. And so I implore anyone who has those thoughts to seek help. You aren't the only one who's felt helpless before. We are human, not almighty.

For all those who need it, here's the National Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
