And then I get upstairs. And have a seat. I see this pigeon (the one on the left) with a full cracker...and I see his counterpart trying to get in on the action but very skeptical about it. And I start to think about humanity in general. The one bird has a big ol' cracker and definitely doesn't want to share with the other bird. And the other bird wants it, badly, but won't be aggressive about it. Sharing is caring bro. However I will say that if someone grabs food off of my plate without asking it irritates the shit out of me. Please just ask first. Please?
So I look up, and this is my view. Every day. Well, it used to be up until May. Then it was sporadically my view when I was headed to the city to shoot, meet friends, go to an event, go on a date, or whatever I might have been doing in the city. This week it's the start to my new routine. Back on a daily commute. Back to a regular paycheck. Back to daily socialization. No more sleeping in and going to bed whenever I feel like it. Back to responsibility.
Today for lunch I tried the Fountain Cafe and sat on a bench in the grass while I enjoyed my salad bar lunch. Day two of this new routine. AND I even made a decent decision on what I ate.
As I was leaving the office today I was reminded of my last place of employment. The place that lured me away from Genentech with it's pretty wood floor and modern lobby. With it's promise of something new and a beautiful view. What a sham. And then I realized that I am now in a place with lovely wood floored lobby and glass double doors. Minus the sham. So I knew I had to take this photo. It just felt like a sign.
Adoramapix and then head to an appointment by 6:30PM. It was tight. I made it to Adoramapix and picked up my three packages (10 framed photos) and headed to my appointment. Made it just in time. I was super anxious to open up my packages but alas, had to wait. I spent some time working on my head and emotions and connecting with people like me and finally headed home.
Once I got home I finally got to open my artwork. I took a moment. To see your images matted and framed and ready to go on a wall is such a magical feeling. It's a tangible representation of everything you've captured. For me it was also symbolic to the things I've accomplished and continue to accomplish this year. It's Through the Lens, it's a vision, a dream turned reality. And I just cannot wait to see how everything turns out.
By this time I was exhausted. It's been two full days of work (#firstworldproblems) with tasks needing to happen afterwards. So I cuddled up with Miss Marli on the couch and fell asleep to the sounds of the fan and the television. Good night, sweet world. See you tomorrow, sweet new life.
