  • Drinking: Hot Mocha from Rogue Roasters

O R E G O N // Investing in a journey of a lifetime...

Hey you.

I write this while I sit in one of Oregon's best coffee shops: Rogue Roasters in Grant Pass. I stare out the window and make observations just to take it all in. The pavement is wet from rain; leaves are dewy and changing colors (its starting to look like fall and feel like winter). Humans are cozied up in warm knitwear and denim jeans. A man sits outside sipping his coffee. He wears an orange knitted scarf tucked in his tight black leather jacket, with his leather gloves shoved in his back pocket of his loose cargo pants. He's a motorcyclist; the helmet in his hands and knee pads strapped around his pants are a dead giveaway. Hmm, a motorcyclists drinking coffee and wearing a knitted scarf... I really must be in Oregon. I'm so use to people wearing slippers and shorts, sundresses and bikinis -- it feels like I am a world away from home. And just 30 minutes ago, I was in Rogue River, dropping off my bf at his friends business... which is a completely different atmosphere in comparison to this coffee shop... there, they are running a legal operation growing w-e-e-d.  Where am I? Oh, Oregon. Where growing weed is legal. It's surreal seeing it happen... 'the herb processing', I call it.  It's interesting. Anyway...

Oregon is the home of many types of entrepreneurs and creative professionals (just what I love!).  My friends have told me that I should have visited this place along time ago. I don't know why it has taken me this long (I'm 29). I didn't realize it was this easy to get here {we flew into Sacramento, drove to Napa Valley, and from there, drove up to Oregon.} Granted, I am spending more money on this trip then I probably ever would have. But, I'm looking at this trip as an investment. A real investment that involves visiting an Oregon Vineyard and tasting many red and white wines (happening this weekend).  I'm trying to take everything in without allowing anything negative thoughts into my mind... because this trip is going to be the beginning of a new business venture that I start with my b o y f r i e n d . People say never to mix business with pleasure, but I think this is an exception... we're staring our own wine company and it's going to be EPIC.  I'm writing this here, just so YOU can get another dimension of me. I'm not just a photographer, I definietly have a "life" and many passions (wine being one of them). In the midst of all this, I'm shooting weddings (ig: BrittenLoveStories), model portraits (ig: brittenphoto), and doing graphic design & photo restoration projects. But, that's not as interesting as my wine travel venture at the moment, which is why I'm writing about it.

I'm trusting my instincts and doing what I've always wanted to do:
Be myself and be sure of my journey.

Here you go...

Steer your own ship and allow others to join you on your journey. If you're going to give your wheel to someone else to steer, make sure it is someone you trust wholeheartedly. Do away with the negative thoughts in your mind, learn from every experience, and move forward. Afterall, it is your life and you only have one to live. The journey is just as important as the destination, if not, more important. It's one very solid thing I've learned in life, is to compare yourself not to anyone else, but to the person you were yesterday.


P.S. Napa Valley was BEAUTIFUL and amazing. I'll share pictures as soon as I get more downtime.

With Thanksgiving just tomorrow, I wanted to post an early thank you to DeviantART for giving us a platform to share our work with the WORLD. I love this community and I am so glad to be a part of this. While I've been on hiatus for years now, I know what the DA community can do for an artist... it's truly remarkable to see an artist grow here from the very beginning stages of their work, into a professional in their field of art... and gain worldwide recognition.  Deviants that have inspired and influenced me in one way or another, thank you:

:iconseafairy: :iconlarafairie: :iconkatjafaith: :iconzemotion: :iconekud: :icondreaminginthetheatre: :iconhenderson:

I am also very grateful for all of my new watchers and those of you who have followed my work for years! And those of you who share my work in your collections, favorites, and blogs... I do my best to comment back and visit everyone's pages to return the love...
