“I react, I go, ‘Oh my God, look at that,’ and the camera goes click.”  

Ted Grant


I want to grab my memories, make them warp their emotions and views around me like a cozy blanket.



I think that’s why I love Photography so much. It takes the amazing things I see and gives them a physical way to keep them close.



Each sunset, laugh, shadow, and light is there. Taking me back to the jokes, fights, the cold or warmth.



Like Ted Grant reacts to what he sees, so do I react to what I see and my mind tells my body that I want to have this memory forever. I want a way to go back to this time, place, feeling.



I see the world in photographs. Whether it’s watching a movie and seeing what parts would be the best stilled or if looking at someone when they talk. I can’t help my self from seeing what I could photograph.


 



 

I’m happy that I have my 22nd birthday as a physical memory.



So thanks for going down memory lane with me. I hope you enjoyed it.

Friends and Oregon.

I feel like I could live in these moments forever. The little ones that creep in the middle of the night. The still ones that wrap you in warm sun beams, making you want to lay like a lazy cat. The peace of the cool rain drops falling and breath-taking thunder running through the sky. The sand between your hands, eyes closed, listening to the orchestra of the waves. It’s these moments that I crave and cling to. I take pictures to fling me back, almost like those amusement park rides that makes everything blur and turn upside down.

Knowing that those moments are happening in that moment is spectacular feeling.

I went to Oregon one weekend a while ago and I went to the beach. While all of my friends were doing things around me, I sat and watched the waves and ran my hands over the sand. Later that night we sat by the fire joking and listening to the waves. I felt and knew that this was going was one of those moments that I wanted to travel back to. I’m so grateful for my friends and the adventures they bring. I love that I got to have sometime with them and to just soak in the feeling of relaxing fun moments with them.

Don’t forget those moments.

New Ground.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.

What you have caught on film is captured forever…it

remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

Aaron Siskind

It’s a moment. Small at the time, sometimes silent. Looking back its huge and filled with noise. Emotions of every type flooding over you like Whirlpool. You sit and look at it pulling the feelings apart like tangled string, trying to figure out what you want to have stand out. Then at the end your left with a little bit of the beauty of what you see with your heart and eyes for everyone else.

This is photography to me. It keeps me grounded with changes in life. It takes me out of my head to see what the bigger parts of life are, making sure I see the light when all I want is to wallow in the past.

I’ve gone through some changes in the last couple of months and I wanted to share some of the moments that have happened so far.

Can’t I just stay in Never Neverland?

Hi all readers,

So as you guys know this past year I’ve had to come to terms with the fact I am having to grow up and get used to the idea of all that grown up things, like paying bills and getting a job, a place to live, Which isn’t really how I wanted to spend the year out of high school, I feel like right now I should be doing school work and hanging out with friend and getting really bad coffee from a collage campus, but you deal with what you’ve got and right now that is the idea me being coming a real adult, which is scary to say the lest. I mean why does no one tell you that the idea of finding a place to live and getting a job that can support you so you can at least pay bills and eat, is so not easy to deal with, well at least to me. I mean its not like I’m all along in dealing with this, I have a really great family that will help me with anything I need in life, but I know I have to learn how to walk all on my own again and that’s not easy. A part of me really wants to just hide in my room under my cover and not come out, but then I think of how I can spin this into a more adventure then real life. Like in my head I sort of play what could happen in my head like a movie, and yes even with possible sound track songs, because I am just that awesome, then I take a deep breath and let it out and go on with the day. I don’t know who all reads my blogs but maybe at least some of you guys can understand what I am going through, because I feel like I am not really that crazy, or if you don’t maybe you can still connect with what I’m trying to say, its really hard to grow up and move on from being in a little safety bubble. Most people who know me know I try to stay positive, because nothing really gets done with staying in the negative parts of life, and I know this isn’t one of my more happy post but I feel like its really important to show that living life isn’t as easy as what people think it is, but that cant let that make you stay in this negative part you. Push through it till you come to the part where you can at least take that deep breath and say to yourself its all ok. Now that I’ve said all that, I know that a lot of you guys like to see my photography, and this post I am going to have some but its done my Dad and my Sister who are really great at photography and I love there work so I wanted to show there stuff off, I did do the editing, I hope you guys like it and if you liked this post you should like it or comment letting me know what you think. OH and is there anything that you guys might want to read or see on this blog?? I’m all for suggestions!

Till next time, lots of love,

Emma-Rose
