On December 15th, 2016. I had a life changing procedure.
I had a craniotomy procedure – brain surgery. I was diagnosed with Brain cancer back in 2015. Hence, I’ve been off the grid for the past few months. Life has been hectic, however this procedure changed my life for the better. Pathology report came back and said
I’ve been blessed.

“Stolen moments” create a feeling of enjoyment in our “intensive time” awareness. The glow and the intensity of those instants can guide us throughout a whole lifetime. They can expose a second or a third dimension of the daily events and shed an expounding light on all the little details we encounter. (“Stolen moments” )”

I can NOT contain my excitement. My photography portfolio is expanding tremendously and I can see myself progressively getting better and better. As an inspiring photographer, that’s HUGE!

The Titanic era; one of the most historical moments in time, John F. Kennedy having a tea party with his daughter, Mona Lisa being returned to its home in Paris, World War 2, World War 1 … and so many more were captured in black and white.
When I come across a black and white photo, I gather different emotions. It sets multiple tones, ranging from pure bliss to utter despair. Which is why I think most people are drawn and are able to connect with this type of photography.
“People say that a time machine can’t be invented, but they’ve already invented a device that can stop time, cameras are the world’s first time machines.” – Rebecca McNut , Smog City
I can’t contain my excitement when I capture beautiful Kodak moments. It’s remarkable what a camera can do, especially when it can capture photos like these below.
When you start shuffling through old photos, you pick up a particular photo, for instance it’s a picture of yourself and it’s your sixth birthday party. You’re absolutely thrilled because you received the birthday gift you’ve been wanting for a long time, you’re over- joyed!
You smile while you reminisce about that moment.. Your mind goes back in time for a few seconds.. Photo you had in your hands, became a time machine.
