I’ve been pretty hard on myself the past few years. Always pushing forward and practicing self-discipline.
It makes me feel happy, balanced and like I’m not wasting the time I’ve got here on this wonderful miracle we call our planet – there’s just one downside: there’s no time to recharge. It leaves me tired and in a state of constant light burnout
So, last sunday I decided to start a small compromise and not get up at 5am (or earlier) once a week. Let’s call it a self-discipline cheat day :-)
Went out to capture the beauty of my hometown’s historic alleys – and forgot the tripod, was too lazy to go back home and get it, told myself ahh there are street lamps, I can do this without a tripod. Well, I messed up the focus and holding the camera more steady but I still love the shots and want to share them with you because that’s what practice is for, isn’t it? To mess up and learn from it.
Also, I realized once again, I don’t have any problem being alone in the forest but passing three drunk teenagers on a sunday morning in the streets makes me freaking nervous.
but look at that bokehlicious focus accident and the glory of orion ♥
