Brandy Day226: That Moment When….

image

Its not very often I shoot and I’m not happy with anything I see or shoot. Tonight was one of those days. What I saw with my naked eye was not what I captured with my lens. The frustration and anxiety behind the is something hard for others to understand. Its like suffocating. I took a quick break and chatted with my brother Nick, trying to clear my ‘spider web’ like mind and shattering heart.
I hit a lonely back road. The sun was nearly melted into the horizon and dusk was approaching on my left. I got out of my truck, lights off, and set up my tri pod to shoot the sky. A road that’s driven maybe a handful of times a week. Rarely ever at night and of course a car turns down this road…..and drives in front of my lens. I thought to myself angrily, ‘Thanks for ruining my shot!!’
This photo was the outcome. I wouldn’t say ruined, rather just what I needed at that moment!

Brandy Day194: Bars, Scars & Empty Hearts

The quote reads, “The only bars around your heart are the ones you planted yourself. Bend the bars and break out of the prison you have built.” (Tyler Knott Gregson)
This particular quote stopped me. I’m guilty of this. A lot of us are. After putting yourself out there so many times, you eventually stop. Some of us will never bend the bars. Some of us will use them as safety only causing silent isolation. What a lonely place that will be for you.
