Last September, I returned home to Utah from New York and a 2 year proselyting mission for my church. Since returning, I've had a difficult time getting back into the flow of photography. I've created this blog to challenge myself and start A couple of months ago, I had a little photoshoot with my friend Legend (Yeah, that's his real name). This too, was an effort to start making an effort to get back in the flow of things.
Legend's goal for this photoshoot was to get some cool profile pics, but I wanted to find some shots that would provoke my creative twinge. This one did it for me.
I've been thinking so much about running. In the symbolic sense. I feel like I'm always running from something or too something. Never walking. Never taking a little stroll. As human beings, the only way to get somewhere is to outrace life before it catches up to us. Do you want to succeed? Do you want to become the person you've always dreamed of becoming? It's not going to come to you. You gotta break free. You have to run away from your demons and run, sprint, and chase that goal.
I want to succeed in my photography. Let this opening photo of my blog dedicate my pursuit of running away from the things that hold me back and running to everything I've always wanted to be.
