Picture This Lyric

Share

It’s all about finding projects, passions, labors of love, and things you enjoy in life. As I mentioned previously, I recently bought a new camera, which has helped fuel my passion for taking photos again. When I was younger, I always used to have my camera with me, and I even used it to make some pretty good money for awhile.

So many interesting people walking around makes this a dream for capturing some candid shots of people. For a moment, it’s like catching a glimpse into someone else’s world.
