My last photo walk in Islamabad Pakistan

Shortly before leaving Pakistan I was asked by two former students to go on a photowalk of a model village in Islamabad called “Said Pur Village”.

I feel very fortunate for the time I got to spend that afternoon just strolling around getting lost in the winding paths wedged between the houses. Most visitors who go to Said Pur Village only really see the restaurants. We went on a bit of a detour back in the neighborhoods of the village. While meandering around the twists and turns I encountered reality, not what I really expected to find in a “model” village. Seeing the children playing hide and go seek and running between the chickens and goats touched my heart, I had such a sense of community. Please enjoy the my last photos of Islamabad.

Sri Lanka

This was truly one of the most amazing places on the planet. Wonderful people, culture and food! You have to get there. I would love to live there some day personally.
Here are a few photos from our way too short trip.

Professional development

The image of a warrior bravely taking on a challenge is an appropriate crest for me over the next few months. Another chapter of life & learning await.
What awaits…diving in deeper on shooting & editing video, audio mixing, and getting ready for my first move to a different country. On top of that  hopefully becoming fluent if not proficient (fluency is the preference) in another language.

Create more than you cons…

Create more than you consume.

Focus (the mental type)

During slow business periods keeping on task is paramount.

Time to get to it and stop complaining. Doing what you need to do, and getting over any anxiety.
Be naked and transparent and finally honest with yourself and your goals.
The absolute worse thing that can happen is hearing the word NO! Thats it!
Take a deep breath and realize that this is you finally not getting in your own way.
