When entering a new year I always get both nostalgic and excited, a mix of the both. I love looking back over the year and seeing how I have progressed as a person. January 2010 I was so shy, my photography was limited as I only used those that were around me as models, so it was the same old image pretty much. Yet now, December 2010, I feel i've really come out of my shell - I can meet up with people I've never met before - I can work well with a small team and I'm really just trying to suck it all up a hell of a lot more, because being shy and standing back behind the crowd isn't going to get me anywhere in life.
2010 was an amazing year for me (well half a year) - from April (when I met my lovely sean) onwards, it really began to get exciting. Summer was so special to me, everyday me and sean would be out in the sun together... taking photos down at the lakes, going for a walk in the woods, shopping in ikea for our new house, eating in random chinese food courts, going to the zoo, making a mini camp fire in the woods, baking cookies, staying over his and getting very drunk, parties, london london london, driving around in his car with sunnies and the music blaring - just everything about that summer was so amazing to me! Memories i will not be forgetting.
I always feel fresh when the new year comes round. I feel like it's a chance for me to get myself together, try harder and succeed better. I tend to make new years resolutions but never really stick to them. Although I feel I'm more dedicated and motivated now than I ever was before - so maybe I'll succeed better this year. But my main resolution is to work work and work on my photography. I want to get so much better than I am right now, I want to get my photos more well know, and I want to try some crazy fashion styled shoots. I have images in my head that I want to put into action - and in my head they look pretty damn cool - I'm hoping they will look how I visualise them in my mind - that way I'd feel more than content.
Anyways, that is all really, I do this every year on when I have a blog - write a last little entry of the current year; I look back, and then I look forward. and I will keep on looking forward, because I'm so excited for life. I hope 2011 brings you all good memories, and remember, a photo captures and freezes those memories - everyone should have a camera! That is all for now - keep checking this space for more blog posts in the new year!
