Have you ever wanted something to happen so bad and then it happens? Are you excited? Anxious to see what it looks like? Anxious because others are going to see your work?
That is how I am feeling right now! Yes, I am going to be a debut author in the summer of 2021 but I also have had two of my photographs published in products that others will purchase!
The first photo was purchased for a local Poetry calendar. It was so exciting. The amazing piece was that the month they used my photo for (without them knowing) is my birthday month, July. How exciting! Meet Pearl, my model for the photoshoot.
The other photo that was recently published was for the Cotton issue of Southerly Photographer magazine. It was taken one very cold, frosty morning of a cotton boll in a field that had not yet been harvested.
Never stop believing in your dreams, no matter your age. Dreams do come true. Be that author, photographer, performer, scientist, or even President of the United States. Never let you ethnicity, gender, others, or whatever (yourself) stop you from your dreams.
