*Warning* The subject that I will be talking about is suicide and some other tough subjects. If you don’t want to hear what I have to say please skip this.
First and foremost, as much as I want to say that I’m not around people who are suicidal, that I am. I can never imagine how one goes into that depth of darkness. Its pain for me to hear these friends who cant seem to find there way into something better. It pains me see them face to face live everyday like a nightmare.
It always pains me to hear there last goodbye.
I am sad to say that a friend who will never be get to another point in there life ever. Sad to hear that there nightmare was so bad they never made future plans because they knew how much it was taking them away from that. This friend of mine who was not ever taken in by his family for who he was and who he wanted to be. To only have his own father tell him that the gun safe was open for him and to take his only last opportunity. It sickens me that not only was he fighting this nightmare, his father made him live it until the sound of that fire arm went off. He never gave a sign of help because he thought that he could take care of himself.
So this is my message. If a friend, a family member, a loved one is feeling down by a person dragging them down. Dont carry life with them behind you. Separate your life from theres. Roll the dice, do what you like to make a better life. Do the same to others, they will do the same for you.
Portland Bill in the mist.
Can't keep up with social media at the min, read on for why... ___________________________________________
But first off....The weekend just gone presented somewhat of a challenging workshop, the mist down at the bill was so heavy we didn't expect it to break as it did about 20 mins after this shot was taken revealing amazing afterglow colours in the twilight with a crescent moon.
Soon to be adios UK until the end of the year. ........................................................................
Headless chicken at the min as the most indecisive person in the world tries to plan 120 day Europe trip having to coordinate flights out of UK to Ireland, back to Germany, then out of Italy to Ireland, back to Italy, then more out of the Midlands, then those back out to Midlands 3 weeks later, then finally 2 flights back to UK from Greece, all the time with me keeping moving setting up rendezvous points, some how I need to shoot and chill along the way.... Maybe even shoot the Milky Way??
Wrap up all admin, go to London 4 x next week until past midnight, drive home. Drop car at Gatwick, drive to Provence on the 4th, fly back from Marseille on the 10th, then run 10 nights of workshops.... Hit road to return late November, fly to Iceland... Hibernate January....
