In my first blog post at the end I mentioned about having “Photography Blood”. I had said that one day I would write about it and what it means to me. I think I was born with it in my veins to be a photographer. I know it may sound funny but I believe it.
The only people in my family that are photographers are me, my grandfather, and my great-great-great grandfather. Hence I feel that we all have photography blood in our veins.
Growing up I didn’t know what I wanted to be. Some people say that they want to be firefighters or a veterinarian. Me I had no clue…. It wasn’t till I got older that I was figuring it out.
I had different ideas but nothing set. I wanted to start my own business making little box’s for weddings and party’s. Then I wanted to be a barker or a chef. I also wanted to make jewelry. I’m still not sure how photography became a part of me.
I’m glad that I’m pursuing this dream of a photographer because I can capture moments of peoples lives and mine. All of the great moments that you may not be able to capture again, for a living. You don’t have to be a photographer with the title to be one.
You can be one yourself. You don’t need a fancy to be one either. I don’t, I use my iPhone most of the time to take pictures cause its what I have to work with right now. The meaning of having photography blood reach’s deep inside me I may not have all the words to describe it but its me, its a part of me, and who I am.

I have written a book. No this isn’t self promo telling how you can buy it. I’m here to say I haven’t finished it. It has taken me a over a year or two to finish. Nothing new is coming to mind.
I keep reading what I already have, and rewritten certain parts, but no new stuff to go along the story-line.
“I Have Writers Block”
The worst thing is that months have gone by and I still haven’t finished another chapter. Sometime writers get stuck with the last chapter. I’m stuck right in the middle the good part when everything starts to come together. Horrible I know.
I start to think “How can I write a blog, and not finish a book, or i’ll think that i’m board of it so iv’e stopped writing cause it’s not good.” I end up staring at the pages of my note book or laptop and I go to write but nothing happens. Instead of sounding all gloom and doom of my writer block. Maybe its the best and I need to move on and one day I can pick up where I left off in the middle and start new.

I have realized that I haven’t done a blog post in a long time. For me that’s not good because I have been trying to have a schedule and be productive. In order for me to be productive I had to change the way I did thing’s and looked at life.
Many people say that “life is two short so make the best out of it”. I believe that in a sense but saying and doing are two different things. Instead of saying and not doing I looked at it in a different light.
“If I (personally) sit around doing nothing, what have I accomplished in life.”
For people that can mean something else, but for me that is what I have to change.
From now to when ever that’s my goal, to make the best out of everyday. One person had said ” If you are doing something you enjoy, and your not excelling your not going anywhere. Do something else that can grow your success”
” Sometime’s you have to change to make things better. ”
I have learned that the only reason I may not be happy, or not doing everything I want to do is because I need to make the right changes. If your not understanding what i’m saying let me break it down.
You may be flying through the sky’s because everything is going well, but then while your flying something gets in your way, and you think everything is over. Here is the point sometimes the things that get in our way we have to remove. It could be a friend, your job, or where you live. Get rid of it!
If you don’t that could be holding you back on your Productive Life.
