well here i am. going through all of my 2017 photos. first off all i am ashamed at my lack of organization skills. if i was graded on that alone, i would have failed miserably. it appears my hard drives are cluttered and a mess just like my brain is.
as a whole, 2017 was a beautiful one. lost of good times, lots of hard times. it’s all piled up, mushed together in a big giant lightning fast blob. we always hear or you may be like me and say time seems to go by faster and faster. it seems when you have children, it goes faster.
secondly, i am ashamed of the lack of my presence in these photos. i mean, the mom is always the one taking the photos, right? and we hear that we should get in the photo more, we tell ourselves that we will be in more photos. but we, or at least I, never do. sure we got our family pictures done. that for me is a priority and something that has to be done every year. but the everyday moments, the fleeting moments, the moments that essentially build us, make us….i am not in. this is the first year that i allowed this to happen. and it breaks my heart. i am angry at myself for the lack of drive to take that camera around, or set up the self timer and run into place with my family. ashamed.
2017 was a low year for me, personally. no rhyme or reason really. just that time of life. it happens to everyone…or so i think it may. it really all depends on how you handle that lowness and how you react. a phrase i have to tell myself daily is that if one if not willing to help themselves, no one else can do much help.
i am not going to make promises to change that this year. i am not going to make any goals or resolutions. but i am aware of my mistake and i will proceed forward with a more sense of awareness. after all…we are not promised tomorrow right?
so here is a glimpse at our 2017. these were all taken with my dslr and my film cameras (pentax, maymia, and f100). so you will notice some differences in the images.
here’s to you 2017.
