I Dream A Dream

Posted by on 7 March 2013

I dream a dream of being a photographer. As in doing it professionally and doing it full-time instead of just indulging a ‘hobby’. Because, deep in my heart, I feel that I have been blessed with the ability to see things that few people see and make everyday things look extraordinary…even with ‘just’ a camera phone.

I dream of being a travel photographer. Because I love traveling as much as I love taking pictures. And pictures don’t mean much unless you share them with friends and family (and blog readers *wink*).

But above all, I dream of being a portrait photographer. Because I found out that I can take pictures of people that they actually like…and once they see the pics I take of them, they ask me to take their pictures time and again.

But as the song goes, “there are dreams that cannot be”…at least not at this given moment, not under the current circumstances.

And thus, for now, I shall continue dreaming…

    Your dream is actually transforming into reality. What happened to that NY School of Photography?
