Goodbye summer you’ve been…….ok

 

I wish I had a re-cap of n amazing well spent summer but I don’t. In reality All I  did was take classes, work , eat , sleep and Repeat.  I started off with good intentions but I quickly flopped. Planning to break out of routine takes a conscious effort that you must stick with. Its easy to make s tons of plans and become excited with those plans . the effort is going through with them. kinda like anything we set out to do in life. I say all that to say this summer basically passed me right on by and it did at the speed of light . Before I knew it August was approaching and now were in sepmterber. how ? when ? . Besides a camera roll full of selfies, A new iPhone and 45 minutes spent hot on  humid , NYC    public transportation everyday , I didnt d o much. Maybe autumn will be more exciting ?

A forward pull and a backward pull. both tugging for dear life.  who you are in the middle,  the person you used to be and the one you hope to become ,  on opposite ends. both tugging and pulling and grasping. Both have the same goal in mind :survival .  Neither one wants to give up . neither one wants to die.

This summer between reading a million books, the gym, Trying to change work industries, eating healthier and More classes, I want to use my beloved Camera more often  .  With the help of lynda.com  courses and just plain old fashioned practice in the real world I  am looking forward to taking my camera out more with me. My concerns (or what has been stopping me ) Besides looking like a rookie with a camera strapped around me , one has been damaging my camera by dropping it or carrying it in a bag getting in knocked around or  even stolen or causing me to be mugged for it (NYC  resident here ).. I am willing to look pass those obstacles to get more practice with my photography this summer. look out for more chantel belle updates and more of my begginer photography.

Don’t know what to say, don’t know what to do
Split a hundred ways when I’d really like to follow you
Creatures gonna run, people gonna move
I don’t really know what I’m getting myself into.
