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©

See Through Me

b690914ee208d7feb6aa477183acea1b

You see through me, for I cannot hide my heart away
Longing for a reprieve from feeling darkness someday

You know how black my soul is, you can see the hues
But yet how you can love this vessel, I’m so confused

How can I deserve one as you is such a great mystery
Our true love is the kind that goes in books of history

One day I hope that all the black from me fades away
Longing for a reprieve from feeling darkness someday©

Hands Of Time

time-value-min

Time slowly passes the days go on and on
I have so much to bear and now you are gone
Thought that I’d do much better, able to be strong
But now I know I wasn’t ready and I was very wrong
Life can be so fleeting, the moments ebb and flow
Believed life was perfect,  just want you to know
Moments in a lifetime, just pictures in a frame
I want forever but you just couldn’t remain

The hands of time are just so unforgiving
Allowing death to steal from all of the living
While plundering our hearts with terrible grief
Taking from us so that our souls cannot find a relief
Broken and undone, I have lost all sense of feeling
Will this pain ever stop to allow me some healing
Yet from the loss and heartache I must believe
In this there is a lesson for me to receive©

You Can Never Satisfy Them All

022

Nobody can ever please everyone all of the time

In fact you won’t even satisfy half of them partly

Desiring to do things just to make others happy

One will accomplish gratifying nobody equally

Thereby forever working hard to be discontent©

Keep Your Vision

“Don’t be discouraged if people don’t see your vision, your harvest. All they see from their perspective is that you’re watering a whole lot of dirt. They don’t SEE what seeds you’ve been planting with blood, sweat, tears and lack of sleep. Make sure you don’t abandon or neglect it because “they” don’t see it. You have to KNOW and believe for yourself. They don’t see the roots and what’s budding under the dirt. But it’s okay, because it’s NOT meant for them to see it. While you wait, MASTER it. You continue to do YOUR work and have unwavering faith! Remember why you started planting in the first place. Your harvest WILL come!”
~Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir
