It’s raining again today guess I can’t get a break so I can travel around with my DSLR no matter I will just have to wait besides I have other things to get done.
Trying to get things coordinated so I can find myself in a good space to do what I love and at the same time there is life to be lived bah!
I definitely want to get back into video and produce so that I have even more to enjoy hey got to love the tech as it keeps getting better although some social networks to me have become such a waste of time I find tumblr most appealing later.
Oh this is another old digital photo taken many years ago I just love the good old fun times!
Working on the website to really Rockit and showcase my photography as I find it the most pleasureable experience for me having tried all of those other noob social networks bah!
Honestly I am not going to deal with that amateur shit no more as I am totally fed up with it and all the bullshit technical issues that keep hindering my ability to showcase my work professionally.
So I will continue to enhance this experience for myself as I share my artistry with the world!
This photo is of a festival that we went to and had a most wonderful time of it Rockit!
Another day of rain here so definitely no going out with my DSLR but at least I have another very old photo to share of the nature trail that I love walking on when I have the time.
I am so very joyous to have this website on here because quite frankly the other social networks are lacking in functionality lol!
So I am just relaxing on the laptop and I just love being able to you know pause with my thoughts and there is no rush to post nor is there any feelings of obligation bah!
I know it is going to be seen on the Internet unlike one particular network that is a dying cave of the dead and long forgotten lulz! We all want that one place to just do our thing and have some fun for that brief moment and this is it.
Lot’s of things I want to get done and so much out here in which to explore and fulfil my need to view great content later.
I enjoy a wide variety of foods from different cultures and one event I have really enjoyed going to is the Taste Of The Danforth in Toronto. It has been years since I attended but let me tell you that food I can still smell and still am savouring the taste.
At the moment here the weather is not conducive to wanting to go out lots of dark clouds so I am taking it easy and just doing whatever I feel like which is why this post and photo is making it’s way to you.
Won’t be long till we have the Winter set in but until then I am going to try and find the time to get out there with my DSLR well this photo is old and not shot with such take care and Rockit!
The weather is warm and lovely out so it put me in this mood of comfort and so I decided to post this photo taken with my DSLR as it gives me this happy feeling like I can do anything and all will be nothing but good times.
Looking at a photo can totally change our moods and we can choose to be in whatever mindset we want to be in that moment such is the beauty of photography and why I love getting out there and shooting it.
This photo was take at a festival that me and my lovely wife attended where a group of dancers took to the stage and individually did their routines. Capturing those moments when another artist shows you a good time brings back to you so much more later as relive it all through your own artistry.
Sitting here having a coffee and was looking through my photos and was deciding which one I wanted to post and came upon this old one of the Toronto Skyline.
You can see the Royal York Hotel and I just love this photo which came out really nice after processing even with the overcast sky it just smells of the city that I love.
What a beautiful photo and I am really proud of it and the memories it is returning back to me as I remember that day!
So I had a long nap this evening guess I was quite tired as I only wanted to lay down and relax. I be sitting here gathering my thoughts as the clock is ticking in the AM.
Been really wanting to get out there with my DSLR but first I have things to still organize so I be taking my time. Let’s face it people view your post and move on in a matter of seconds but It has taken you so much more to produce that content.
This is something I enjoy doing in my spare time so I will be taking time with it and when I have time to do it or I feel like just hopping on here I will do that otherwise there are more important things to do with my time.
For me if I have to do it for the views of others I’m not doing it Rockit!
On this day I am very thankful to be able to create new memories and look back at the old and see how far I have come up to this day.
We take chances in life never really knowing what the outcome will be but realizing that if we do our best we will be truly satisfied. None of us is perfect but we should not make that as excuse to not try and realize our dreams and strive to be better at what we want to be.
No we can’t all be rocket scientists but who wants to let’s be real as long as I can continue to Rockit in that I realize me!
This photo is of Nathan Phillips Square in my hometown of Toronto where once again that special lady in my life my lovely wife Charmaine and I enjoyed a lovely day of sightseeing 10 years ago.
From the WatchStops archives for the very first time since it was shot over 10 years ago comes this photo of a baby Cougar as we were out enjoying the festivities.
So many beautiful photos we have to share with you and also many more to shoot in the years ahead and quite frankly this has made my day to finally be able to share it with you.
Getting up close and personal with such a beautiful animal is a memory I will always cherish but rest assured this many years later I would keep my distance.
I am about having good times and sharing those good times on here and that is what I shall be doing here on this my website.
For me to have taken so much time and effort in not only the shooting of my photos but the processing of them uploading and posting all I look forward to is knowing that someone online is enjoying them and nothing more.
I am all about providing you with content that I have created yes my own works unlike those who have to go online and steal the works of others for a false sense of accomplishment and notoriety.
Suffice it to say I have great contempt for that kind and quite honestly find it most offensive and not worthy of my viewership.
This is another old photo of people enjoying a Jazz Festival where each year me and my lovely wife love to attend.
Kind of getting cold earlier this time of year then usual seems we really never had a real summer to even talk about ha!
Been doing lots of thinking as to what I will be doing on here moving forward was kind of hoping for awhile a certain other social network would get an update and start to take shape but that looks not to be.
Yes it’s kind of disappointing but in a way it was to be expected as surely one cannot expect others to make something of their online experience.
I am really enjoying myself on here though posting my photos and writing something up that just comes to mind. It is something that I have always wanted to do unrestricted and nothing but creatively expressing myself.
Another photo old yes but brings to my mind the travels I will continue to make and photos I will take.
Gathering my thoughts this evening I am reminded by a post my lovely wife Charmaine made about her 5 year survival with breast cancer and I am eternally grateful that she is still here with me to enjoy these memories that we shared and continue to share with one another.
I can tell you the day she was diagnosed I went for a walk to air out my thoughts as to what this all meant not knowing the future outcome tears streamed down my face even though I was not crying it seemed rather strange at the time but today it is quite clear as to how much as a couple we would have to battle against the odds.
Invasive surgery chemotherapy radiation and I had to stand there feeling helpless as she suffered to survive not only the two forms of breast cancer but what would come later as a direct result of the therapy she would have a blood clot travel to her lungs and all I could do was call EMS not just once because she would be sent home with antibiotics but twice because they misdiagnosed the cause and she almost died.
Those tears were made of true love and devotion to the commitment that we made to one another to be there for each other no matter how helpless a certain circumstance might seem we as a couple would do our best for one another.
Now you understand as to our strength as a couple and the love we have for one another it’s unbreakable and no amount of criticism hatred or insult can ever separate what has defied death itself.
To my wife Charmaine I love you and know that together we shall be for all eternity because you are my life. XXOO David
Another old photo this one was shot in Whitby Ontario as me and my wife were taking a romantic stroll along the shores of Lake Ontario.
I am so very happy that I started doing digital photography years ago so that I can now share such wonderment and adventure.
Need to get out there and do some more shooting with my Canon DSLR which this photo is not shot with for obvious reasons lol!
I really love this old photo it is really so antique looking actually they do sell antiques there.
So I be just sitting here taking it easy and getting things more organized as it were. Lots of work to do yet with organizing things now that I have the software that I wanted installed on the new laptop.
Transitioning from old to new is always a lot of fun so I be taking my time and getting it done at a casual pace while I process my photos and posting whenever I am so inclined.
The thought just came to my mind that I am starting up my own little photographic art gallery on here.
I have always wanted to do this and at many times had started it up only not to continue with it but this time it is different.
It’s because finally I want to bring it together in one place that I will be proud and know it is my own.
Another old photo this time the fountains at Dundas Square in Toronto.
