i like to think i'm daring.

.
every time i got in the shower and ran my hands under the water to test the heat, this thought struck me: one day, you need to take a photo of your hand in the shower. the sun will begin to set and the rays will stream through the rectangular bathroom windows, and it will be beautiful. it ran through my mind for the rest of the shower, and once i got out, i completely forgot about it. i think this cycle went on for about two weeks, until one saturday, before my youth fellowship, i remembered before i got in the shower and seized my opportunity. i think it's the most dangerous thing i've ever done with my camera. and i'm not one to put my electronics in a situation where their working ability is compromised (that sounded so official). i just wanted to do something a bit... i don't know. i like to think i'm daring. i like to think this photo represents cleansing in a way. water cascading down the palm of my hand, erasing all prominent failure, telling me i can try again tomorrow. whether this is your view of daring or not, i just feel proud of this moment. i feel like i should keep trying, keep doing.

happiest wednesday to you guys.

  6. okay, you are so flippin' cool. I would be scared to death to do that to my camera, it also helps that it's actually my dad's camera. :P but, your hands are very artistic too! ;)

  12. how do you come up with so freaking good ideas?!

  13. This Jocee, this is why you are so beautiful.

    Oh, and I agree 100% with the i'm not one to put my electronics in a situation where their working ability is compromised bit. I'm just that way too. Many times I've had fairly similar thoughts on great photographs, and backed out due to putting my beloved Camryn in harm's way.
