Wait. How old is old? Because now I am a year more than half a decade. If that makes me old, I have to go pack my things and start to be a photographer, a craft that I have always wanted to polish. Only that I can’t do that at the moment. I have a day job that requires eight hours to complete. Ask me if I am happy with it. I am not but I can’t quit. There’s always that need or want decision-making in life, more like a do or die thing.
Long before I get old, I was already fascinated with captured faces, actions, expressions, emotions, colors, shapes, etc. in any form on a photo paper. It’s funny because we cannot even afford a camera. That again is another story. A lot of stories to tell, actually. So, before this becomes a very long and boring post to read, I stop here and share some photographs I snatched from the willing victims. I am not sure if I have the qualifications for this craft but then again requirements are always limiting for me. I just shoot in vain attempt to document moments and to preserve pictures to keep people alive (at least on paper). Apart from being fascinated with nature and places, I also love to capture photos of people.
Here are the unedited photos:
These children are so full of youth and life. They’re a respite from a disappointing day.
The photos below end my daily attempt in photography. 😀
One thought on “When I grow old, I want to be a photographer.”
I see a lot of character and charisma in your photographic subjects. I do hope you continue to enjoy your love of photography.
My dad is 75 now, and for the life of me I can’t think of him as being old yet. He is full of life and an inner and outer energy. I’m in my mid 40s. I know I’m no longer “young young”, but I still think of myself as single “young” to a degree. I guess I’ve taken after my dad a bit. I’m glad if I’ve inherited that from him. I find my hobbies and being around people help me stay feeling young. I hope you will continue to explore your hobbies and write as much as possible. The joyous smiling faces of the people I saw in your photographs should hopefully help keep you young at heart and mind.
