" there is no in-between, just shades of gray "

---

you're kidding yourself if you think there will always be perfect moments only. no one is going to hand you the keys to the castle. no one will sweep you off your feet. no one will pluck you out from the crowd to do the cash-grab booth game. no one will tell you you are special or loved or your words meaningful or you in any way make any difference in the world by your presence.

you're kidding yourself if you think that perfect moments do not exist. people will surprise you with their good nature. they will show you kindness when you're in need of it. they will share their belongings, food, a lift, and even their home. good people will come into your life and you will feel so much of their love, your heart will never be less than full. they will hold you close and stay with you until you realize that you are one of the most integral people on our planet, and they couldn't ever see this all being the same experience without you in it.

 you’ll never know what kindliness and interests lay beyond the mystery of possibility. to engage and request, to face another with honesty & genuine regard. 
 time unfurls itself and lengthens to suit the seemingly infinite space in which we wonder, and wonder if we will act upon that sense of wonder. 
 a sublime sweetness and a true graciousness, which welcomes you into that sought-out photographic situation. what will you do in that great moment, but do your best and make an image timeless? 
 how rare is it, the opportunity itself? and what an honor is each instance and occasion to prove your worth and quality? 
 (thank you for your time and graciousness  aridesu , i’ll have film for you anytime you are free and willing) 
 these are the shots i seek, and the most satisfying and fruitful. i love these opportunities, and never treat them with anything but thankfulness. 
 what did you challenge yourself to do today?
