Another Beginning

The wonderful thing about our existence as human beings is that we are presented with a unique opportunity nothing else in the universe is afforded: We have a choice to start over whenever we please.

Where there exists a beginning, so does an end. And where there exists an end, so does a beginning. And thus, I am ready to start another beginning... placing another bookmark to an end that has yielded many experiences...

Place of work...
A sense of self...

In no particular or relevant order, I will note.

Time and time again, it has proven difficult to let the end surface after enjoying so much of what began. It is even more frightening, in my opinion, to embrace a beginning that offers nothing more than the unknown.

After taking a break from my reality and basking in the pleasures life has to offer me, I had a strange sense of the proximity to the end. Something I've fought against for several months. And yet, in my place of peace... it was easier to accept.

We have to learn to take what people have taught us... shown us... shared with us... and apply that to the start of a new beginning. Otherwise, time is lost. Some people we will take with us. Others will be left behind and only through chance or fate will they reappear in our lives.

At the end, I just hope I've learned something. I hope I've helped make people happy. I can only hope they remain that way.

Probably the most breath-taking site I've ever seen with my own two eyes. This is called "The Window" and is located in Big Bend National Park (El Paso, Texas).

I like this one simply because of the dominance of the color green in the photograph. Hope you enjoy. :)

Believe it or not, but these miniature turtles are very shy and will dive down into the water at any sign of movement! I'm glad this one poked his head out long enough for me to get him on camera!

Hope you enjoy! :)

Again, not a huge fan of insect photography, but this one really captures the butterfly's natural ability to camouflage. Thought it came out pretty good. :)

This is another one of my favorite photographs. The location is right on the Laguna Madre - that's at the Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge. I'm starting to put together a professional wildlife photography portfolio and submitting it to various natural photography magazines and see where that goes. It wouldn't hurt to have my work circulating around for someone's eye to catch. I need to see about going to get my photographs copyrighted.
