I have to write this.
At 17:55 hrs., 1st of may 2005, while listening to Justin's Timberlake 'I'm lovin it', I am at room 206 of Villa Florida Hotel in Veracruz, celebrating my first business trip with a banana split, with lots of whipped cream and a cherry on the top. Yahuuuu!!! :) :) :)
Maybe for many, business trips are more than common (like my father) but this is my first, and I am quite excited!
The place is getting quite messy and sticky, but c'mon, I'm celebrating.
(I am the only person I know that prefers to celebrate with ice cream instead of alcohol)
The best news is that they didn't hire me as a graphic designer, but as a photographer!
Funny thing is that I never thought I would do this kind of job. I considered myself pretty amateur.
I confess I was quite afraid, (because I never believed my pics were good enough) but, guess what: I am not bad at all! :D
Of course the camera helps a lot, but that doesn't take away my skills.
I realised (and surprised myself) I know much more I thought I knew.
It was not that I didn't know how to take pictures. It was that I believed
So, (again my despite philosophy) despite I was afraid, and I thought I couldn't,
I took the risk.
And so far, so good.
I proved my belief was false, and I see myself with new eyes. (or should I say with new lens?)
I keep learning and expanding.
I'm lovin' it!
