This picture pretty well sums up my life the last view months. College has been on the horizon, unfortunately, so have all the dollar signs that come with the joys of choosing one’s life path. I got to a point where if I heard scholarship, loan, grant etc. one more time, I though I was going to detonate.
I am a very bull-headed person that tries to procrastinate everything until the very last minute and then have a mental breakdown because everything is out of order and due the next day. Makes sense right? Anyway, due to the constant reminders I finally filled out some scholarship and loan information for college due to the fact my attendance was on the line if I wasn’t able to finance everything. Did I mention the school I’m going to is my dream school and the only one I applied for? Yeah, this money was rather crucial in the long run.
All in all, I did what I needed to do and finally received enough money to completely pay for the first year of college. YAA!. 😀
I never realized how much of a reality check/ major relief getting a loan and scholarships would be.
I cannot wait for the upcoming months of visits to tie in all the rest of the loose ends.
Last year, we shared some of our favorite photo apps and alternatives to Instagram. We’ve since discovered more photo apps, some free and some a few bucks each, as well as options focusing on specific effects (such as adding text and enhancing images with typography). Here are some options worth checking out.

Press play first.
We have been called many things. Travelers, by default. But we like to be called nomads. Explorers. Vagabonds. Adventurers. Wayfarers. Modern gypsies. Wanderers. We’ve adopted them all. A growing breed of humans with restless feet and the inability to stay still, the inability to stay in one place.
That is who we are. And that’s just the gist of it.
We come from all walks of life, from bustling gray colored cities, sleepy beach towns, snow-covered metropolises, small villages nestled in between lush green mountains, we come from everywhere. But our inner gravity always brings us to the same place… the road.
We deem courage weighs more than money when it comes to travel. We’re not rich, not financially well-off and we don’t travel for luxury. Our money does not come from rich parents, trust funds, or whatever privileges you think we have in order to maintain…

Over the last couple of days I have been walking from one end of the local high street to the other, my Nikon on my tummy, 35mm lens. ISO set high enough to yield a smallish aperture to get a safe depth of field. More or less. So much for the technicalities. The more interesting bit is the people who walk to and fro and generally inhabit this half mile of shops, paving stones and tarmac. From the quirky, to the pensive, the aggressive, the ugly, the resigned, the damaged, is there nothing that a camera cannot make look interesting? There’s little more to say on the matter. The true genius of photography lies in the ability to capture and freeze an instant of so called “normal” life, to be scrutinised at an almost forensic level, by anyone, at any time, and for however long into the changing future, as…
