“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” ― Henry David Thoreau
The Daily Image – A Place to Recharge
I often spend time here. Its my go to place in the morning with my green juice, protein smoothie, or on a late start day…a cup of coffee. The balcony. A place that I seem to run to every time I answer the phone. Its a place that ideas seem to flow at me from the ever-changing Florida sky.
I can usually count on it to feed me in time of need when I am on the phone. Sometimes its a word of comfort to someone going thru a hard time, perhaps a suggestion to a friend about a project they need a help on, I client looking for a new design idea, whatever the case is….its a fresh place away from the home office I spend too much time in.
Living in the moment. Thats a tough one sometimes isn’t it? I’ve pondered that one more than a few times during early morning journaling or late evening moments when I head out here and take the time to look off into the sky and appreciate the gift I have, of that very moment. Really, I do. Sounds a little wacky perhaps and certainly a far stretch from the stressed out over achieving entrepreneur I used to be and sometimes still am.
Treasure the moments…..
Some of those moments for me are the times I give myself to create my art. In fact, I can frequently be found on this balcony with an insane amount of camera gear doing just that. Its a great place to try out new techniques and ideas. One of those as of recent is my time-lapse rig. I’ll post a blog soon about all the technical pieces involved, but for now, I just wanted to share a few images taken from were I try to “stop” time….
And share below, an example of how hard that is to do!
Most of the clips were created by capturing an image every 5 to 30 seconds and created in camera with my Nikon D800. Its one of many ways to create time-lapse art. Like I said, more details later if you are interested, but till then….enjoy 🙂
