Off balance


Do you ever have moments or days where you “just don’t feel right”?

The past few days have been that way for me…and I don’t like it.  I’ve been super emotional and easily set off.  Which is just not me.  I mean, yes, I am an emotional being…but this is crazy.

I feel drained.  And anxious. 

Lacking any motivation to get done what needs to go done.  And yet looking for something to go do.

It’s. Frustrating.

Watercolor skies


I know, I know.  I didn’t even manage to take one day off!

All day long things kept jumping out at me yelling “take my picture” “look at me” “don’t forget”.

The one thing that I loved most about today was the sky.  I always love when there are clouds mixed in the sky.  Today was no exception.

All day long I noticed the clouds, and on my way home they were especially beautiful.  My phone would do it no justice, so I didn’t try.  Every few minutes, or every few turns, the colors were changing and creating a beautiful watercolor in the sky.

Sunsets.  That’s what I miss most about Florida.  No matter what mood I was in, a trip down to the beach to watch the sunset would make my day.  Especially when the clouds were in the sky creating magical creatures and feelings of being trapped inside them.

Day 365!


So.  This is Charlie.

It’s been 1 full year today.  365 days of photos.  365 days…wow.  I actually did it.

It’s been a long year full of many memories and many changes.  I am so grateful to of had a place to voice myself.

To those of you who have been with me from the start, thank you.

To those of you who have joined me along the way, thank you as well.

I’ll end the year with this:
6 things I’ve learned over the past 365 days

1) Everyday, is a lot.

2) I love documenting my life. 
This is something I’ve known for awhile, but rarely take the time to actually do.

3) Create for yourself – not others.
I’m not doing these projects for other people.  Some days I just don’t have the energy to get a “good” picture…and that’s ok.

4) I do like positive feedback, but I don’t need it.

5) Listen to your gut, and be adventurous.  Don’t be too scared to go for it, you might surprise yourself.

6) There is something interesting everywhere…you just have to be willing to take the time to look for it .

Thanks again, and till next time! :)

Day 364


I was driving home with my windows down, music up, enjoying the beautiful summer evening and thought to myself…Wow, tomorrow is the very last day of this amazing photo journey.

I decided to head over to Jones Bridge Park before going home, in hopes of getting one last “great shot” before this collection is done.

Man, am I glad I did.  The sun was setting, it wasn’t too busy, and the scenery was gorgeous.  Plus, there was this misty fog over the Chattahoochee River that was breathtaking.

I love evenings that feel like this.

Day 363


Mmm…sweet potatoes…

Day 362


Lots of homework/studying.  It’s a ton of work being designated the “leader”.  At least for me because I want everything to be right…and not everyone does their part.

Day 361


Jeez…we were soooooo slow this morning.  It was like a ghost town.  Luckily I was able to pick up a night shift, and ended up making some money. 

Too bad I spent it all at the grocery store though…haha.
