I am In the Process of Decorating My Home..
The Last place I lived was a small Town house and I used Photo's to decorate ...and I'm gonna use Photos this time also.. yeah I'm into Photography.
I have a Passion for Nature and Wild Life, 2 legged and 4..legged!!
I took all of the Photos that I had enlarged and framed and spread them out on the floor, Some are of whitetail deer, birds, Zoo animals.. flowers....Old farm Houses, Sunsets, Sunrises...Horses..etc.....
There is One Pic I took that makes Tears come to my eyes, besides the ones with my Dad...!!!!!
I went Bass fishing with a Bud of mine ..I guess it was 4 or 5 years ago.. We went to the Potomac River... Pre fishing for a Bass tournament. We went Up to DC....What a sight!!!!
We would fish a few Min's here and there and move on.. deeper in DC we went...
We went To the Down Town DC area, Awesome sights!!!
But There was a Guy under the down town Bridge taking a Bath in the river, Homeless,!! I'll never forget that sight...he had his shorts on... but that Dude was washing like he had never had a Bath before.. He scrubbed his head for a long, long time,I'm talking 10-15 mins or more. he had Long dark n Grey hair... he Looked like the Jesus Pics that we all have seen....
I told my bud I should take his Pic...but I didn't wanna Invade his Private time! My bud told me to take it...So I did.... With tears in My eyes... I mumbled to myself and to Him.....Sorry man.... I'm sorry Life Made You this way.... ! I wanted to go give him some Money.. but my Bud said hell no, he might feel invaded and freak!
Who knows, He may have been a Doctor,Lawyer, Vet. But he was someones son, Maybe someones Daddy! But He Gave up!!!!
I Say a lil Prayer everytime I see the Pic or think on that time.
So yeah... I took ONE Photo....that's all! It was under a bridge, next too another bridge so..the Lighting sucked and I was using and Old Minolta XG1 35mm....No Flash!
But Ya know the Pic came out.. Awesome!
It shows that the Camera was Starving for Light... kinda Hazy... but I enlarged it and framed it... and Use it to remind me, that We Cant Give up Hope!!! We all could end up Homeless, if Not for the Grace of God!!!
What makes You Keep On? A thought? A Picture? What is it that Pushes you on?
