ring lake

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

“Golden Rings”

I was a little late getting set up for this timelapse of the sunset, but it worked out alright because I got this image out of it.
Sometimes I’ll jump into frame at the beginning of a timelapse in case I want to add myself into a time stack. Or I’ll do some light painting for the same reason. This time I threw a rock in the water to add some interest, and since I was late to start, this was during the sunset, while the orange and gold of the sky was reflected in the water.
I used 5 frames to make this image, the extra 4 frames were used to add the most defined ripples, as the initial shock wave spread out from the center of the impact.


Nature of Armenia

If I am asked where is the place on the earth that one can come across many miracles, I would name Armenia. Involuntarily you are suprised in such a small place on the earth it is possible to meet such monuments and such people, who can be the ornaments and pride of the whole world - Rockwell Kent
