Following on from my previous post, I decided to do another portrait post. Jay Roxas is a professional mixed media designer, a very talented dj and a photographer in the making. Check out his awesome website here.
Hello! How has everyone been?
Time flies and I can’t believe that we’re almost halfway through 2012. Ok, maybe not quite halfway yet.. but we’re definitely more than a quarter way through.
It’s been a very long while since my last post and I do sincerely apologise for that. Lots have happened (both personally and professionally) – work has been hectic and crazy as usual and it’s been rather difficult to find a little bit of “me time” let alone update this blog (alright, no excuses). I hope that you do forgive me for the lack of updates though.
However, I’ve decided to do a late night personal portrait post – Thanks to a friend who reminded me today of why I first started this blog and my passion for photography. Thank you CC.
Special mention: The last photograph is in dedication and loving memory of my beloved grandfather who was called home to the Lord in December 2011. It was also one of the last photographs that I took of him at his 90th birthday dinner. He was an inspirational man, a teacher and a great role model. But above all, he was a dedicated father and a loving grandfather.
People say that “a picture is worth a thousand words”… well, the way I look at it is that “some pictures hold a thousand memories” and it is simply priceless.
People never know what they’re missing until it’s gone. It’s true. We take things for granted and never ever tell those who are close to us, how much they mean to us and how much we appreciate them until they’re gone. We never take the chance to just slow down, spend a minute and say ‘Hello, how are you?’. We’re often too busy working or doing something “more important” that we don’t make time for the really important things in life, for those that matter. We often forget to take a step back and just be still and be thankful.
Don’t let this be you and don’t live a life of regrets. Tell someone today that you’re thankful for them and/or that you love them.
Treasure each day, appreciate your family and be thankful for your friends. Don’t let it slip pass you because you’re “too busy”. Each day is a gift from God and be thankful to Him for all that you have.
