Exploring Pettah - Frozen Time
-- It happens once in a while. I was in the middle of trying out some pan shots with the oncoming bikes and tuks at a junction. So the settings were changed to a slower shutter (1/50s) and manual mode. While one or two worked and the rest didn't, I noticed this person standing on opposite side of the road, completely engrossed in his reading. So putting aside panning for a while, I started taking some shots of him. And yes, forgetting to change the slow shutter and manual mode. But thanks to that blunder, I was able to capture the movement of passersby while the subject was perfectly still. So I guess blunders can sometimes work wonders.
I believe in prayer. I believe in God. And I believe He listens. I plead these words in my prayer about every night because I know that peace, strength, and knowledge will continually come to us as we seek God. I will never forget the day I decided to sincerely follow Him. I had spent the whole day crying in my room because of the place I was in in my life. And my Heavenly Father was who brought me out of that dark place. I told God that day that if He helped me that I’d do whatever He wanted me to do and I have never regretted it. In life we make choices that may look fun or enticing. These different life paths may look brighter or easier. But as we make choices that are not in alinement with God and His will for us, this will always lead us to these dark places. We will end up taking on unnecessary hurt, anger, grief, etc. God does not give us guidance for any other purpose than to help bring us happiness. Now if you have strayed from God or feel as though you are in a dark place. Do not give up. God is there. Christ paid for it all. He can relive your burdens. Have hope. .

It’s a true gift to have exercise as a cornerstone in my life. It has an 𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐀𝐂𝐓 like no other and beyond grateful for......✊🏽 1. It strengthens my mental and spiritual being
2. Teaches me the importance of patience
3. The people and places it connects me with. The list goes on ...... 🙏🏾 What’s one way exercise has impacted your life? 😊
THIS USED TO BE MEEEE!!! I WAS THIS BITCH AND I LOVED SHOVING IT IN PEOPLE’S FACES. “Oh, you have cramps? You have a FIVE DAY period??? WOAH WOAH WOAH your period lasts EIGHT DAYS?! Who the hell did you piss off?! Girl, you are cursed.” That’s pretty much how my convos used to go. A lot of my painkillers, anti depressants and anti epileptic (often used for migraineurs) medications really lightened flow and length of period. Mine would last 3 days. Until 3 years ago. IT WAS A JOY. Now... 😩 now I have it for 7-8 days. Thanks, Mother Nature. You are one tough bitch!
Have you experienced this type of change because of medications, stress or just life? #thisischronicillness

This photo made circulation today and I thought I’d tell the story of gun stock stabilizers! For those of you who are camera enthusiasts, this is an Exakta mounted on a slide-ridge wooden rifle stock. Stocks like this have been used since the early 1900’s and are more than not used in wildlife situations where animals are moving. Though it does work with mountains and far away objects, the mount works quicker and easier than a tripod set up and has the ability to be a bit more mobile. While some of these mounts (like DASCO) are quite common, others (like the one pictured) are rarer and harder to come by. I have always found these incredibly interesting and have used them while shooting in Canada, Alaska and Oregon. The trigger is just a set length shutter cord that slides through a port hole where your finger rests. You can find a few of these stocks in our shop!
While I don’t encourage smoking, the other day I was asked as to the reason why I seem to always be doing so in some of my more staged portraits. And the real reason is that I just find smoke quite beautiful, I don’t smoke regularly, and when I do it’s a natural tobacco, this pays homage to the period in which we relate to being the earlier side of the 20th century. Tobacco tins and cigarette advertisements are things that inspire our design and branding work as well, and while the world has changed for the better in acknowledging the health issues that come with smoking, we hope that the work can be seen only as artistic and not the glorification of it. Shooting with one of these mounts gets a lot of looks these days, and is considered a bit silly, but it’s a piece of history and one I very much appreciate. #1924us#hipsterking#cameras#film#vintage#smoke#mount#tattoos#coffee#life#boniver#travel#history#adventure#home#art#inspiration#gear#35mm#exakta

Me sinto outra pessoa com o cabelo para esse lado. rs
People hardly understand that we are most powerful when we are united. A father gives everything that he has got to upbring his children. A man who has his mother's heart is the richest person in the world. You change your mind, it changes everything.🔥✔️
