"We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true."
—Woodrow T. Wilson
Live young. Keep your dreams fresh, for it's the only thing we live for.
I remember telling this friend of mine while we were out shooting this set, that I kind of wanted to create a Facebook page to help get my work out there, but also doubting it at the same time -I was worried about seeming pretentious or something. However, she totally did not see it that way, and told me instead that if it's what I love, I should go ahead with it.
So, I would also like to take a minute here to thank all those who support me, especially my friends. I made a new Facebook page just recently for me to publish my work in a proper place rather than just mixing them all in with personal pictures like birthdays and all. Seeing the audience building is a very gratifying business, especially when for now, they are all mostly my friends. I imagine it reaching hundreds, thousands and more, and think about then when it would probably be impossible keep track of all the people; and now, just one extra friend liking it means so much to me and even more so knowing that it's out of pure sincerity. Which is precisely the reason why I'm not sending out messages to everyone on my friend list, posting links on their walls, or even directly asking them to like the page. I've realised that it isn't the number of people you have on a 'fan list', but actually producing quality work -which I am striving so much for- and the people would come.
The whole process of photography makes me so happy. Thank you so much for willingly being my audience.
