On The Tip Of Ambitious Endeavors
“The knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumor.” – Aldous Huxley
Recently, I began working on a series of shots that I like to call Office Spaces, which has me looking at normally overlooked areas of my office, and the baubles and trinkets in their almost precariously tossed places.
The key is to exercise my creativity before and after I have to use all the logic, reasoning, and patience to hold it all together. It is my resting, healing and calming moments…
I shoot away the frustrations and aggravations of some days by examining the mundane. I get a chance to hear music and quotes swirl in my head as a lay on the floor staring through the viewfinder, or I get moments of utter blankness and peace while I stare out unto an abstract sunrise/set through the cage-like blinds expanding down the entire office window.
I am turning that frown upside-down, I think.
If I cannot be the free little birdy capturing images for a living each and every day, I know I can seize all the opportunities available to me where I can feel that euphoria while through the lens.
