And it came to me then, that every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time As I stared at my shoes, in the ICU that reeked of piss and 409 And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself that I’d already taken too much today As each descending peak on the LCD took you a little farther away from me …
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our mind But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to never have lain beside at all
Love is watching someone die … so who’s gonna watch you die?
Before I flew back out to San Francisco, I had the pleasure of shooting Mariel Martin and Keone Madrid’s engagement photos. These two were the funnest, weirdest, most perfect madly-in-love couple I have ever shot. It was definitely at the top of my favorite photo shoots lists. They made the whole shoot so enjoyable, and before we knew it we lost track of time and the sun was already down!
We decided to take the photographs at La Jolla Cove, where Keone planned his proposal to Mari <3 It was a lot of fun exploring different locations around the area, and the ideas just kept coming and coming so easily! I was also very happy that X joined us for the shoot, he definitely helped make the shoot run smoothly =]
We started the shoot at this random grass area that was chained off, but it was too beautiful not to pass up!
Then I said “Okay, just be yourselves!” Annd, of course they started dancing =]
And putting leaves on each other?
And more laughing =D
Then Coco boy joined us! What a happy fambam.
He would not look at the camera though.
The ring <33
I was so thankful that the weather was cloudy, it gave us a nice, soft, diffused light the entire shoot.
Closest we could get to a family portrait!
Time to climb some trees…
Yes, they are really..really..wierd. Haha, I love it.
I don’t know what they were going for with this one..
I absolutely loved the happy accident with the heart-shaped puddle <3 It definitely fit the mood.
P.S. If you would like to use an image of mine, I have no problem with that. Buut please be so kind and ask first, and give proper credit where it is deserved. Any artist would appreciate that small gesture. Thank you =]
It’s 12:07, and I’m thinking ‘bout him 8 minutes ago, it was all okay, yeah I wish the year was just missing one day I’m wishing I could I forget it 'Cause it's still so hard to live with
I’m humming to the song playing in my head when I first met you And I’m looking through the pictures in the shoebox under my bed And I swear, every conversation that I have Someone brings up your name, just this one day I don’t know Maybe if I board a plane, I could beat the sunrise Ready to grab a hammer and start breaking the clocks (those damn clocks)
She’s singing “Bitch, I’m paid. That’s all I gotta say,” I’m like who knew that after all the years I’d make a Weezy fan out of you too When I met you, you were Tom Yorke, Chris Martin, and U2 When you met me, I was Three 6, Pimp C, Bun B, 8 Ball, and MJG
But we’re both a long way from home, We got the windows down, radio’s on
I’m not just in it for the ride, in it for the ride
When I was younger, I used to want to drive an Integra when I got to high school. That plan failed.
And it’s not like anyone drives Acuras in Italy …. womp.
Hard not to spoil you rotten looking like little me You ain’t know yet what swag is, but you was made in Paris and Mama woke up the next day and shot a album package Last time the miscarriage was tragic, We was afraid you disappeared, but nah baby you magic
I’ve divulged everything I had to say about 2010 into a private blog and wrote until I got so tired of writing. Needless to say, there was much to be said. But because I’m a kind person, I will sum it up for you.
There was good. There was bad. … There was great, but nothing tragic.
I am truly grateful that there was nothing difficult externally for me to deal with, and in retrospect the only hard battles I fought were internal. In terms of goals for 2011, there’s so much I want to do. And I feel like for the first time in my life, there’s so much I can do.
Jet-setter, go-getter. Nothing better.
Happy New Years Eve, and to all a good night. And 365 more ;-)
Written a year ago. I usually write a reflective blog about my past year on December 31. I just didn’t feel like it this time around. I’m over looking back, because this year, I have so, so much to look forward to.
2012. in omnia paratus
