Photography

One of the things I would love to do more of is photography. The problem is my damn wheel-chariot. It makes it hard to shoot what I find intriguing. Abandoned buildings, homes, hospitals, cemeteries. Places with history. Roger bought me an awesome Canon EOS with all the gadgets and gizmos along with a big ole zoom lens. It is something that makes me smile. We also have a couple of amazing 35mm film cameras.

I am a huge fan of a FaceBook site: Another State Of Mind Urban Exploration . They also have a shop here: Another State Of Mind . Their photography and their eye is extraordinary. I urge you to like their FaceBook page as well as check out their shop. As most of my friends know I have a love for the unusual, paranormal, etc. The Asylums and abandoned buildings they find and shoot are first rate. I joke that I am living vicariously through their lens. Which, in all actuality, is no joke.

There are some amazing places in California I am finding with histories and even hauntings. I am hoping to one day be able to go to some of them and shoot some photos. Praying for some sort of crippled access. lol

Depression is a huge part of my Multiple Sclerosis, seeing the photos from Another State of Mind makes me smile, and imagining the stories behind the photos is so intriguing. I would love to show you some examples of their work, but copyright is very important to me. So I implore you to go check out their sites. You will be glad you did.

xx, Tracy...

      There is another called Paranormal Entity, it was pretty good.

      Wouldn’t that be amazing!!? I took photography in College, but then life happened and I got swayed.

      As for the meds, I hope they start working as I’m on month 3 going to 4 and not much. But, good things do come to those who wait. Right? lol
      love ya, xoxo

    Photography means a lot to me too. Walking with Kodi allows me to stop and photograph things of interest. I love nature photography, I like to find odd things in nature I’ve not seen before.
    I was lucky enough yesterday to be able to catch a beautiful cardinal low enough and close enough in the trees for me to get a picture of him. What a treat that was.

    It certainly is wonderful therapy. I hope you can figure out how to get out and about to enjoy your fantastic camera.

    Have you ever checked out the blog 24 at Heart? http://www.twentyfouratheart.com/ She has chronic pain from a car accident and is a photographer.

    Recently she started developing another blog (in her words):

    “I’m working on designing a separate place. A place where people with pain, disabilities, or any type of challenge or obstacle can come to share their love of photography. It will be a place where people can tell their stories – whether their stories be of struggles or triumphs.

    It will also be a place where they can submit photos to share. People who have loved and lost photography (as I did for three years) will be welcome – as well as those who have never taken a photo but would like to try.”

    Here’s a link to that post: http://www.twentyfouratheart.com/twenty_four_at_heart/2010/09/give-me-a-name-contest.html

    Just a thought. Hoping for the best for you!
