Let your mind start a journey

“Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be. Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.”  ~ Erich Fromm

Chasing sunrises are like chasing dreams.  You have to persevere in order to catch them.  So I wake up at 4am hoping today is the best capture of golden colors and hues imaginable.  I have captured many sunrises in all forms, and each one was different from the last. I never say, “this was the same as last time” but instead focus on how I can tackle it from a different angle.  How I can make it distinct from all the sunrise photos we view on the web daily.

Most times, my best sunrise shot is my latest.  But in order to achieve the capture you want, you have to persist and perfect it.  It’s all in the mindset.

It starts with a dream that comes true only when you go for it.

    hi Jojie, I love this picture of your sunset , what is so unique about is how the blue boat was captured with its peculiar angle from photos I have seen. Can I make this one my new painting challenge?


Reach out and make me smile! :-)
