I never get tired of watching this short by Mickey Smith. The visuals with his narration of how he lives his life as you watch him live it. Living life because he is doing what he loves, so he never works a day of his life, he lives the freedom most of us will never understand or achieve for whatever the reasons are. All I know is I will get there, doing what I love so that I never work a day in my life
Me and the 60D made some rounds this evening taking some photo’s of the Richmond skyline. First photo op I’ve done this year and in months.
I think Queensofbattle got it right with the title to his video. ” When you do what you love, you never work a day in your life”
I do love my guns, I don’t have a rifle other than a crappy 22lr I’ve had for a few years, I’m more focused still on my pistol shooting and mastering those fundamentals before adding a rifle. I also rode a motorcycle for a while but haven’t in years now do a few reasons.
But aside from the guns and my motorcycle, I do miss doing my photography and videography. Those of you who have followed me for a while know I did both at one time and was doing it quite. I enjoyed doing photography and video on really anything it didn’t matter, it ties into things that I love to do and then just broadens it all. I was even looking at a Canon 7D or 5D MK II or MKIII this morning. The enjoyment of life vs the dull mundane everyday job, which is not what I need or want anymore. Time never slows for anyone, and life keeps moving forward never backwards only we go backwards.
The first day of 2014 is almost over, and for me personally it is time to refocus on things that I love. I have spent a good long time not doing the things that I enjoy doing because of just life happening and that consuming my time, and just energy with all that seemingly endless shit that is going with me. But that is not to deter me from goals I had been pursuing for years until I hit my break. I do truly miss doing my photography and making video’s, motorcycles and generally enjoying life. But the good news is that it is still winter so things are still calm people wise which affords me chances to get out and restart without losing focus and distraction. I am looking to meeting up with another local photographer whom I’ve said something about meeting up almost a year ago.
As far as 2013, well it was a rough year, just a shit ton of things going on family wise coupled with my own personal issues. But most of those things have passed, and my own issues well those are things I have to learn about as they come forward and then live with.
Forgot I had photo’s like this. This is from last October when I was putting the first rounds through my Glock 21SF in .45ACP. I put 300 rounds of the Russian Tula ammo through it, no issues, even had the wife snap a few photo’s at a very very fast shutter speed such as this.
I’ve always wanted to go out in the rain, and I don’t mean light rain I mean piss pouring monsoon type shit and take photo’s. Problem is that’s going to ruin my 60D. One day I’ll do it, when I can figure out how to not ruin a camera I spent $1500 bucks on.
It’s possible I may be out taking photo’s over the next few days. Been a bit since I last did a photo hunt for the spot, just lots going on in my own life, but I need to get out and just be by myself for a bit.
Glock 21 .45ACP mags. I was very lucky to have found a store locally (Green Top) that had some for sale, 1 per customer, Got 2 last night since me and the wife were out, went back this morning bought 1 more, I’m more than happy with 6.
