D153: Slipping Away

In Black & White, Uncategorized on June 3, 2010 by Eric Kunimura Tagged: , , , ,

Today’s Tasra365 ThemeThursday subject is Time.

As creatives in pursuit of a dream it seems that the time we have slips through our fingers everyday. I find myself up late into the night reading, editing, and viewing images. I “make time” to pursue photography without interrupting my family life. I dream of days when I can spend all my time working creatively. I’m amazed how many people waste their precious time watching television, reading about celebrity news, shopping for useless material things, or keeping up to date with the latest gossip that has no direct impact on their lives. I wonder if, 30+ years from now these people will look back and regret not putting greater value on the time they had.

Are you taking full advantage of what little time you have in your life?

I had a lot of ideas for today’s theme but ended up shooting this. This was one of the times when a model would have been great but I had to make do with a mirror and myself. Sometimes I find myself full of ideas but neither time nor place to capture my most favorite idea.

Read: The Wisdom Of Cosby – Collide Magazine. You are who you hang-out with. If you want to be creative, surround yourself with creative people!

Viewed: Focus For Humanity council member and wonderful humanitarian Gavin Gough. I’m spending the next week or so to view the work of each FFH council member. These are the kind of photogs I admire.

  1. I can totally relate to your “Slipping Away” post. This is exactly how I spend most of my time also. No T.V. no games, oh but how rewarding it is when I learn something new in photography.

    Eric, great job articulating your blog entry and nice photo to go with it.

  2. I love the image. Very interesting perspective, but I find your words even morfe thought provoking. We do have to learn to go after what we want, which necessarily means being selective in how we use our time. Great job.

  3. I agree with you 100%. Nice story here.

  4. Fantastic post about creative living and using the time we have to pursue our dreams!

  5. the tilted angle is nice here, it works with the shot – as opposed to being a gratuitous tilt : )

    And thanks for sharing some great links
