WOW!

Friday was absolutely amazing! I don’t even know how or where to begin. WOW.

Well I guess the easiest thing to do is to start at the beginning. How did my day really start off? hmmmm! I’m just going to give the short version of the story in the order it happened.

  1. Met up with some other Bajans here in the cold and we had an awesome video shoot (and impromptu photo shoot). We got some amazing footage (both Brook and myself). All that footage… I spent all of Saturday night into the wee hours of this morning chopping and cutting to find the stuff I would be using to edit for the video. And YES!! The video is done… for the most part…. just now for the voice over to be done. And the photos I took were beautiful. The model is both stunning and literally a natural. This is legit the 2nd time I’m shooting her ever and both times like a week apart. Both times it was so exciting to shoot her and furthermore… I think I am still excited now thinking about it.
  2. THIS WAS THE AMAZING PART. (Well the icing on the cake). And since I said cake… I’ll give it away… there will be wedding cake to come after today. Not for me per se but somebody’s going to get some wedding cake lol lol lol. So as fate would have it… we (the 5 of us) were shooting on this bridge connecting the two buildings in Eaton Centre when this guy came with some huge bags with letter balloons. So he proceeded to take out the letters. Did I say he was wearing a suit? Well he was and had a backpack on. So as he took them out… I realized the letters were spelling “MARRY ME?♥” We asked if he wanted help but he said he had it covered. Unfortunately the wind blowing through the tunnel had a different plan which made all the balloons blow on a side as opposed to stand up straight. So he eventually accepted our help. So we all came up with the plan for us to hold the balloons for him and we were there working through how it would happen. All this time we were watching the time because he had told us her friends were bringing her at 4:30pm. So we are doing all this under pressure. Why were we under pressure too? GOOD QUESTION! We hadn’t even known this man existed moments before but it was the idea this man was going to propose to her girlfriend yanked on all our heartstrings. I’m not going to lie! My heart was in a state of confusion… it forgot how to beat properly. I was to hold a balloon too but I decided I wanted to record this. This doesn’t happen too often if at all. I’ve never witnessed a proposal in my life furthermore a random stranger who we assisted with setting up for. Mind you… I only by chance had my Gopro on me as I almost left it home that day because I was going to be shooting with my Canon and said I wouldn’t need the gopro. But I grabbed it anyways because for some reason I had a feeling I needed to have it that day. Well things had gotten crazy. VERY CRAZY! As the time was counting down…. it got intense. By this time… many other persons were gathered to witness the event as well. I remember when he got the message and he shouted out “30 seconds!” That was the moment everything got REALLLLLL!

I remember when she walked in the tunnel and he stepped out and she stopped stunned…. I won’t forget what she said first… “IS THIS YOU?”

And he just walked to her…. you know what? I have it all on video…. just watch and see… MARRY ME?- Unsuspected Strangers

 

He asked the simple question… “Marry me?”

And she simply… nodded as she laughed in excitement.

WHOAAAAA! It is just shy of 20 weeks since I last posted. WOW.

Where has the time gone? wow.

Well it’s just after 1am and I decided it was time I came back to my blog and say something. I honestly believe I need to make a decision to come and blog on some interval. Maybe once a week? That’s realistic right? hmmm… Yes! I’ll go with that. At least ONCE a week.

It’s really cool when you see the things you learn in class come to life in real life. I understand that one never stops learning and even though I know this, I’m often times still amazed when something new pops up for something old. It happens with the people I deal with daily and it happens with the things I hear. Thing is, I should really really have this concrete in my mind. As a photographer I know 2 photographers can take a photo of the same subject and both producing TOTALLY different photos.

Females are the most interesting. I know I don’t understand them but what I keep finding out is that the small amount of what I don’t understand is only a small piece of all there is to not understand about females. LOL. It’s actually quite funny. Females have this way of making anything complex. There’s the human factor and then there is the female factor. LOL. The human factor is a variable in life’s equations (sorry for the analogy- Physics major) that varies due to many things, namely; time, setting, location, age, upbringing, character… etc. The female factor…. well….. let’s just say….. it’s far more complicated because feelings and emotions weigh heavily in the mix. There’s sooooo much more for me to not understand about females and I’ll just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I was just typing something there for the last 20 mins and I just backspaced because as I was rambling…. I lost my thought and then I realized there was no point to it anymore. LOL how did I get back here? This is another analogy to what I was just writing an analogy about LOL arguing with females…. after it all is over…. there was no point to it. It’s just a lot of wasted time.

I honestly wouldn’t mind arguments if there was going to be a constructive end, even if one side is not brought to the other, at least let there be an understanding. Arguing with someone who is not interested in understanding your point of view or what you are saying… WASTE OF TIME. And I’m not all females are like this. Would never say that. But I’ve come across quite a few who are.

Anyways…. I am tired now. Was studying earlier and I think I should be turning in.

So until…. next week? maybe? yes!

Ohhhhhhhh….. I just remembered…. I have been following the news around President Trump….. WHAT IS HAPPENING? IS THIS REAL?

WHAT A TIME TO BE LIVING! I never imagined seeing the day the President of the United States of America would do half the CRAZY things he has done.

Til next time.

I just wrote that title and realized that that is part of a song lol.

But yes. I was walking the other day and saw this tree and saw what appeared to be a heart hidden in the hues of the tree. So of course I took a photo. But it made me wonder. Where can one find love? Where is the love? 

I have realized that love is every where. You can find it when you aren’t looking. Many people search and search… but yet they can’t find it. Maybe they are just not looking. If you look too hard… you may very well just miss what you looking for. But at the same time… maybe they don’t know what love actually looks like. We all have our own view of what love is… so maybe what we were taught to be love or shown to be love… really isn’t love. Hmmmmm.

When our eyes are open… guess what… it just pops out at us. 

Many things open our eyes. One minute we have no clue… then blam!

Well enough from me for now.

Pray on
