{photos and text by +Jo}

I’m at a loss for words right now. I’ve been buried in Shakespearian texts for the past few weeks and as you may or may not have noticed I’ve been quoting the Bard lately. There are photos sitting and waiting to been shown to the world but I can’t seem to get my own words out.

If I write about something other than myself it is fine – thus the mural project and the Steampunk Tempest. I feel I am a little on the boring side. I have my photos that show the excitement I feel in life right now… My words are nothing compared to Shakespeare’s so I’d rather not try right now. Though I supposed even that seems depressing.

I feel other people’s words are more apt for describing my own emotions lately. I had an idea for what I wanted to talk about here… But now it is all a blank.

“The difference between starting up and stepping up.” I wanted to talk about how I feel I’ve grown as a photographer over the past few months. More importantly how the internship was a wake up call… A starting point. But now I really need to step up my game.

Not very poetic and extremely concise. There is no romance in it. Maybe I need to think about it a little more.
For now, enjoy the photos.

 

 

 

 

‘Till next time.

“All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there”

    I always notice the Shakespeare, Jo.

    It must have been really enjoyable to take all these photos and then decide how to group them. I love how they turned out. I didn't see that bug looking through the first time, either–my second look was better than the first!
