More than meets the eye

Much like my initial impression of this shoot location, its important to get to know those worth getting to know beyond past the surface.

 

     This week I decided to keep things simple and minimalistic with this blue jean look. I got this hat a while back from Chinatown in downtown L.A and never had a reason to wear it until now. When my friend sent me different shoot options for locations, I immediately felt a connection here. The drive, I will admit, I wasn’t too excited about, but it truly was all worth it when I arrived. I ended up getting something much more than I anticipated. Before I came, I had no clue the location was near an ocean and that made it even more beautiful!

     Which brings me to an observation I must tell you about. You know how you kinda have an idea how something or someone may be from your first impression? Well, I sure learned my lesson. Much like my initial impression of this shoot location, its important to get to know those worth getting to know beyond past the surface. You may be surprised to learn theirs more than meets the eye and you just may be surprised at finding out more. I love how I can look back at my first impressions of people who I’m close friends with now and I’d go, “You seemed so stuck up when I first met you!”

     When you look back, you think to yourself, thats not at all who they are! What was I thinking? When you think about it, you become aware it’s really important to kinda get to know people or give them more chances than your first impression if you have a bad one. You then become grateful. Can you imagine if you hadn’t run into or met that close friend of yours? Who you practically consider family? Yeah, me neither. Thanks for tuning in and I’ll see you on the next post!
