dude...my fingers are so swollen today! This is insane and the feeling is indescribable. I'm typing with pork sausages right now. Are you picturing it? Funny, no?
My weekend flew by as usual. Two days just isn't enough. I'm sure back in the day weekends were meant for rest but as we progressed into dyi'ers, travelers, sport & hobby enthusiasts, weekends have turned into "do the things you wish you were doing during the work week."
I had the pleasure of photographing a couple for their maternity shoot. Drove an hour and 45 minutes outside of Anchorage all the way up a mountain but it was so worth it. Hatchers Pass was breathtaking and although the old gold mine was closed for the winter season we were still able to find spots to shoot. And there was snow! I was worried about that since my vehicle isn't winterized yet but luckily the roads were dry. I can't imagine driving all the way uphill on winding roads in the dead of winter. Scary. Here's just a few shots, I'll probably post more this week because I loved how they all came out.
I could easily name off a few girls who made my adolescent life hell but they mean nothing to me now. There really isn't a single person I could fit into this category though. I mean, there are of course those who give me difficulties and maybe cause me to have a bad day here and there. For example a grumpy coworker who likes to impart her misery on everyone else in the office because her life is so miserable. But no ones made my life hell. I would never let anyone make my life hell or even give them that kind of satisfaction. Not happening. I also don't allow anyone to treat me like poop. Again, you come across certain individuals that feel like they need to disrespect or be mean to some one for there own satisfaction but that's something I've learned to nip in the bud either by expressing my feelings to there face or dumping them as friends or acquaintances.
It took me awhile to get to this point in my life. It all became clear right around my 30th birthday. I just didn't care about those who brought on any type of negativity to my life and I tell you what...the load off my back got a whole hell of lot lighter. And as I get even older it gets easier to let these things go.
