[all I know to do]

Yesterday whilst getting getting a lift from my sister
and recounting tales of the recent wedding that I
photographed and she commented that she was
happy that I was still keeping one foot in the photography
side of things. And that got me thinking. Photography
is pretty much all I know to do at times. It is my main
skill and what most [if not all] people associate me with.

For me to live my life and not be doing something photographic is
strange to me.

It’s just not going to happen.

And in a couple of weeks [or next week, I’ll check my diary] I’m
photographing my old photogrpahy tutor’s stepson’s wedding.
Now to add a little history, my old photography has kept in
contact with me even though college was years ago and gives
my weddings to photograph and work in general and has said,
and I quote

“This is Richard, one of my old students. And he takes
photographs better than I do”

Which to hear from your old tutor is pretty amazing. As you
probably know I have been doing photography since about
the age of Seven. But it was at college that I started to
pursue it. And Mike is a big part of that. Now I’m known as
‘Photo’ by many and like I said before alot of people know me
by photography. Doing anything else would be strange.

Oh and on that point I am going to be working on a
website soon for my photography. And maybe other
aspects of my creative life, like for instance my writing
and so on.

And one more point, and this is mainly for Savannah
[yourownpersonalmonster], I’ve decided to make that
book up and when it’s done I’ll put a link up. Gonna have
to make some new material up for it though.

    You should stick some of your photos in the book too, because like your poetry, they never cease to amaze me. You have no idea how much I’m looking forward to it. 🙂

    Well, I live about 45 minutes out of New York city, so it’s not exciting. As for it draining it me, everything is so boring and lonesome up here. I can spend time with as many people daily, but it doesn’t help. I’m not sure why, I just feel very stressed up here.

    The book will be much more fun to read. Even if it’s compiled love poems, it’ll be as fantastic as if it were not, if not better.

    Everything has me stressed: Writers block, the loss of half the people that mattered most, being so lonely, and a lot of shit that’s just too stupid to list.

    I’m very afraid of the dark. Which sounds weird because I’m most active at night, but something about it makes me very paranoid.

    It’s a horrible feeling isn’t it? I feel so, strange making new memories over old ones.

    People with manners are so sweet and they give me hope that there’s still good people out there.

    I’m not moving on, as I type this I’m begging for him back in the worst way possible. I’m a joke, a horrible pathetic joke.

    I feel all our comments are all of the place. Speaking for myself, I’m a scattered person, I don’t mind the crazy order one bit.

    Your photographs on your photoblog just continue to blow me away, dearest.
    Although I’m confused on if you would like me to continue to comment on this one, or if I should migrate to the new one.

    Your love poems, regardless of who they’re about, are wonderful. And I understand your situation with her, but I’m sure you know that already.

    I feel lonely because, well, I feel no one understands me. Harry wasn’t more than a mere one night thing because I haven’t heard from him since. Tumblr people, they can’t really fill the whole empty void because they’re all very far. I should try making friends who live around me.

    Anyway, I hope all is well with you. 🙂
