Fragile Petals

“Some women feel the need to act like they’re never scared, needy or hurt; like they’re as hardened as a man. I think that’s dishonest. It’s ok to feel delicate sometimes. Real beauty is in the fragility of your petals. A rose that never wilts isn’t a rose at all.” ~Crystal Woods

From Sunrise To Sunset

In the city of Myrtle Beach I always have opportunities to visit local areas where I can capture amazing sunrises and sunsets. In these photos you will see the sunrise from the shore of Myrtle Beach and the sunset captured from a market area named “Broadway At The Beach.” 

Now, while these moments were planned, there are times that I see things around this beautiful city I would like to photograph, but I do not have my DSLR camera in hand. I have often wished that there was a compact DSLR camera with the same capabilities to capture in high-megapixel quality and powerful enough to take even the best low-light photos. A camera that I could easily carry in my pocket or throw in my purse. Recently I was introduced to The Light L16 Camera, developed by Light.co, and they have developed just this style of compact camera. I was thrilled to be asked to be part of their #VantagePoint Project which you can check out on Pinterest

“The sun will rise and set regardless. What we choose to do with the light while it’s here is up to us. Journey wisely.” ~Alexandra Elle

The Gray Doesn’t Last

s-3c58c8bda2ea1f259d06b1079a58c43b1c558fa0

I have to believe that… 

The days won’t always be gray
We will make it as we are
Both having come so very far

I have to trust that…

Life doesn’t give us any more
Than we can get through
 You have me and I have you

I have to remember that…

Perfection is not something real
But in this existence I know
Most important is the love we show©

Tales From The Fitting Room

shirtfactory_changingrooms

Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “spell.” Use the word “spell” any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use it in the first sentence. 

Let me sit for a spell and tell you about my week. If you are unaware, recently I began working in fashion retail. This week was busy, as I live in a tourist town, (a spring vacation destination no less). My job is aiding people in finding items of clothing, well a bit more, but that is the simple description.

People are quite “interesting” creatures, consistently surprising me. If you have worked with them in any capacity than you know what I mean! I am considering writing a book named “Tales From the Fitting Room” and it would be a comedic-horror-nonfiction. I mean, I have seen way more than I ever wanted to, in just a short period of time.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my job! But, this week was crappy, I mean literally! I shall not elaborate more, but needless to say…disgusting! And, I work in a high-end retail store, you would think that it would be better. I guess it doesn’t matter what walk of life you are in, people are still people. The good, the bad and the terribly inconsiderate.

I never knew that one person could try on so many clothes and leave them in so many manners of inside-out. And how difficult it is to pull a shirt from a pile, whilst not leaving the entire rest of the pile on the floor. And if one more person ignores my greeting and gives me attitude… On the bright side, I had my highest personal sales day with over $1450 sold.

So, as I go to spell the next name on the next fitting room door, I shall be filing away more stories to share. Maybe the next one will be yours. And, do forgive me if I forget to spell your name with two “L’s,” miss an “H,” or add an “E.”©
