few thing last forever, fewer things refuse to wither and rot. what does manage to endure will only be buried and forgotten to time. nothing here is infinite.
i know I don’t add my own thoughts or commentary on stuff often and I hope you enjoyed my thoughts today. so I will leave you with this. I had recently read a couple artists of posts tackling the “I wish I could do what you do!” topic. granted I’m no artist, I’m no pro photographer. I am just a dude who wakes up and does what he sets his mind to. I seeks experience and knowledgeable people when I am clueless. I am not afraid to fail or make an ass out of myself. I sacrifice time & my personal finance to take some pictures. I prioritize that highly at times. you can take the pictures I do too, but it will never happen unless you start and unless you try. this doesn’t just pertain to art or photography… it applies to everything #jacaldwellphoto #x100 #jerseycity I owe @chuckrocksyeah_tattooer a huge thank you for drilling that into my head over and over and over years back… if you want something you make it happen, you do it, you don’t just sit around hoping it will happen (at Lucky 7’s)
I think the thing that draws me to photography, like skateboarding did & baseball or doing bands didn’t, is my ability to just go do it alone. when I’m feeling isolated and alone and on the outside I can just go do it. there are times I try to highlight my detachment from the world at large especially with my street sort of stuff, I always wonder if anyone gets it if anyone understands it. now that I have explained it I’m sure some of you do. #jacaldwellphoto #x100 #jerseycity (at Koro Koro Rice Ball Cafe)
someday they will look back and say “there might have been a time where we were more than the concrete & steel & polymers & structural laminated tempered glass but there remains no one who can verify that existence” #jacaldwellphoto #x100 #jerseycity (at Stella’s Pizza)
to strike the balance you must exhibit patience but remain in motion… moving forward at an even pace, this is no sprint but a marathon. do not be tempted to take the short cuts or easier paths your time will come, the answers to your most burning questions today might be answered through diligence and hard work tomorrow. #jacaldwellphoto #x100 #jerseycity (at Downtown Hardware - Truevalue Inc.)
what an a.m. coffee-less dude on #nationalcoffeeday does for a p.m. coffee … espresso with milk & syrup … not black coffee but in the afternoon I need a sweeter cup of joe (at Mod Cup Coffee)
