Following a Dream in 2017 – Day 49 of 100

cottonwood-3

A friend asked me today if I’m extending the time frame of my initial 100 days of pursuing my dream to become a professional photographer and writer. The reason he asked was obvious to both of us: I’ve been doing financial consulting a good deal over the course of the last 4 weeks to earn extra money. I’m happy to report that the answer to my friend’s question is yes! I’ve managed to put enough aside to at least give myself another 60 days toward my creative goal. I have no idea if that means this blog will also be extended–it’s been challenging reminding myself to post something daily–but I will know more when the time comes toward the end of the initial 100 days.

My hope is that 100 days is all I will need to know that an extension is much more than just two months. Two or three decades sounds a lot better. ūüôā

Following a Dream in 2017 – Day 46 of 100

Albuquerque Rainbow (1 of 1).jpg

I’m going to have another anniversary dinner tonight. The one on Valentine’s day was far from romantic, and my sweetheart deserves¬†much, much¬†better. So I’m taking her out again, the way¬†it should have been done on the 14th, and I look forward to what I know will be a wonderful night with an amazing woman.

I¬†captured the photo above in Albuquerque, NM. It was a stunning rainbow after a winter shower, and I shot it from an¬†unobstructed view at¬†my mom’s house. I¬†will return to¬†Albuquerque next month for my 40th birthday.

Following a Dream in 2017 – Day 44 of 100

Because Valentine’s day was this week, as well as my anniversary, today’s photo is for my girlfriend. She’s an awesome, beautiful woman who is incredibly supportive of my dreams and goals. Thank you for all that you’ve done, and I look forward to more wonderful dates with you as we continue our journey together.

I took the picture above at Taos, New Mexico several years back. The winter sunset was amazing that day!

Following a Dream in 2017 – Day 31 of 100

Shot 1.jpg

Today’s picture was taken a few years back in Taos, NM. I grew up in Albuquerque, and I spent a lot of time in Taos either skiing on the mountain or¬†hanging¬†with family and friends¬†in a rustic cabin¬†that’s without a telephone or internet connection.¬†I love looking at this photo because¬†I rarely get to see the beautiful lush green landscape of the¬†ski slopes. You need to be there in the summer for it. Whenever I¬†visit NM, it’s often during the winter¬†for Xmas and¬†New Year’s, a time when the photo above is blanketed in white.

If you’ve never visited Taos, I encourage you to go–whether it be in the summer or winter.¬†The air is fresh with the scent of pine trees.¬†The sky is clear, especially at night when you can see more stars than¬†you can count. And the water!¬†Oh¬†boy, the¬†water alone is reason enough to¬†go because it will taste so pure you’ll want to¬†carry it with you when you leave (as I have done several times with my water bottles).

I suppose this blog entry sounds like an advertisement for¬†my favorite¬†mountain. So be it. It’s an awesome place. I wish I could go there more often than I do (I live in California now), but I have a way of visiting it in different way. It’s called photography. ūüôā
