a year ago at this time, he had dropped out of school.
a career in criminal justice just wasn't going to happen.
working full time in construction didn't keep his attention either.
although what he learned in regards to tiling, drywalling, roofing, closet systems, wood working and electrical will make him a wonderful husband someday.
then he got accepted into the music and recording technology program, moved back home
and his life has been changed. our lives have been changed.
to see our child loving what he's doing. wanting to learn. not skipping school. working long hours into the night. well, this is what we prayed for.
to watch him do what he does, knowing that what we see at home is just a tiny part compared to what he's doing at school, is a blessing.
only parents of other "where do i go, what do i do now" kids will understand
how proud we are. how happy we are.
finding your place in this world...even a tiny parcel of it....is an amazing thing.
a gift actually
thankfully i have a new camera, that can basically shoot in the dark. with an ISO of 1600, there really isn't any noise and with my 50mm 1.4 lens, taking these photos at 11pm was a breeze. the last one was taken with a bleach bypass filter that i don't really like, but made an" in the dark photo" kind of cool. the rest were shot in monochrome mode so that i wouldn't have to do any editing. so yes, these are all sooc. a pentax friend recently played around with my new pentax camera and even shooting at ISO 12800 produced amazing photos.
