Leave it There

Four years ago I started my blog and began to work at the art of photography. I never dreamt I would become so passionate about it. I never dreamt this art could take me around the world or be the catalyst to new friendships. More than that photography has fostered a sense of adventure and wonder that I doubt could have ever surfaced had it not become one of my foremost pursuits. It awakened a desire for me to see and collect light from every corner of my life. It changed how I see everything.
It seems to me that I have become more connected with the permanent things in this life: a bible, a rugged path, a mountain top, folk music and strong words. And though photographs in the grand scheme of things are temporary, they bring a permanence to moments otherwise lost in a cloud of memory. These images serve as anchors, pillars for my story, and they can bring me back to the times that mean the most to me in an instant. They become like forceps, delicately pulling every memory, every detail into the front of my mind, so I can recall them precisely as I should.


the worst thing about being shy and introverted is that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just dont and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared

"There are a few things in life so beautiful they hurt: swimming in the ocean while it rains, reading alone in empty libraries, the sea of stars that appear when you’re miles away from the neon lights of the city, bars after 2am, walking in the wilderness, all the phases of the moon, the things we do not know about the universe, and you."
— Beau Taplin (via marcescentfleur)

Taken on May 26th, 2013, this was a dissipating low precipitation thunderstorm near Broken Bow, NE that produced one of the best lightning shows I have ever witnessed in my storm chasing career. Even more beautiful was when the lightning lit up these incredible mammatus clouds in the night sky. These type of clouds are often associated with severe thunderstorms, and their ominous and foreboding appearance is a message to all that severe weather may be on its way. Photographer: Anne Goforth
Anonym: What does friendship mean to you?


Friendship is about growing and being oneself, and not about apologizing for your entire existence, and even being sorry for possibly stealing someone else’s oxygen.

It’s about being big and taking up space in people’s life’s because you’re allowed to. It’s not about making yourself as small as possible, so you don’t bother anyone.

It’s about support and singing with them in the car and laughing about stupid jokes. It’s about small gestures and accidentally saying the same thing or finishing the other person’s sentences, because you exactly know what they’re about to say.

It’s about appreciation and loyalty.

It’s about love. Not love love.
But rather this ‘I’m- so-damn-glad-you-are-here-and-I-appreciate-you-so-much-you-have-no-idea love’.
Sometimes it’s also a ‘thanks-for-tolerating-me-on-many-days-because-I’m-horribly-annoying love’.

I like how friend’s can make you feel so happy inside by just breathing.
It’s also very nice how you can make them smile and make them feel better about themselves and all.

Another important thing is that it’s ok to allow them some space if you feel like they need it. It’s ok.
