The Daily Collect

Friday, May 5, 2023

The weather has been so atrocious lately. I'm like "dude what the fuck hurry up fucking sun." Most of my coworkers are not down with warm weather for some reason and to be honest I don't trust them lol. Like, you don't want that Vitamin D on your skin? It's unbelievable.

Anyway, as I'm getting as much snaps as I can I've been trying to actively go places to just shoot pictures rather than just getting coffee and editing loops on my laptop. I haven't necessarily given photography much attention these days and perhaps this small little project has been giving me that opportunity.

I don't know how I did it back in the day. I just blogged as much as I could, photographed as much as I could, went out there and did not give a flying fuck as to what kind of material I was going to get. Hungry to take pictures and hungry to just do shit all the time. And maybe that's what I should be doing. Not necessarily waiting on getting things done or when the time is right. That's how people lose most of the time. When they're over patient about stuff and just let shit just rock ya know?

Maybe this was what I've been missing all this time. Just writing and observing some of the images that I've been photographing over the days and seeing where they go. Just taking pictures that just don't really mean anything, but maybe could mean something later. Maybe just take a picture and figure it out later. Maybe sit on the front porch listening to Mineral's first record "The Power of Failing" and write about my feelings. Maybe having this cat on my lap while I write these things and smile because I'm content and I want to keep that exercise of being creative and think about stuff I want to do with my girlfriend and drink this cold ass coffee lol. I don't know. I'm high right now and I don't even do drugs.
