I shall call this blog entry, “The random thoughts of Nicki”. I mean I have this live journal, why not start to write a little bit about my life? It's been a crazy year of growing and changing, I might as well release the demons and dump my brain out so I can then concentrate on the best job ever in the world. You all know by now that my spirit tree is the palm. I can live happily anywhere a palm tree can live happy. That means no snow, no cold, no gray skies. Round here right now things are looking up. It's June and although the last several weeks have been out of the norm for us here in South Jersey, I still know that there's no chance of temps going low enough to snow. Hahaha. Thank heaven for small favors. So the last few weeks have been full of cancellations due to rainy weather. And that's okay. I have been on a journey anyhow, doing some personal projects and catching up on things. I had a big birthday that I am not all that thrilled about.... ugh... a number I won't say at this point. But it's high. Like I have earned another “life degree” by now for all I have gone through up till now. For my birthday, I went to Ocean City New Jersey and took some photos. These are the photos from my childhood mind. The way I saw the ocean when I was a kid. Waves that keep on rolling, no cold, no snow just warm happy days, and this ocean. The sound of the gulls in the morning and my hair blowing in the sea breeze. These are the things I never want to forget. So I went to the ocean just for me. I am there so often but this time, I didn't meet a family or a couple engaged or a mamma in waiting. I met myself there. The girl who turned a big number that day and wasn't feeling too great about the amount of years passing by so fast. I spent a little time with the ocean. She was amazing, also a little restless, so we seemed to get along pretty well that day. I am re-doing Danny's house a bit with a sea side vibe, so I never have to feel like I miss that ocean, even in winter I want to see her and her salt water dreams. I made these images to frame and hang on the entryway walls. (if you are drawn to them as much as I am, just send an email to me, I think I'd be kinda excited to sell my personal work) I am thinking I'll choose three, maybe go square with the frames. Definitely B&W because as I get older, neutral becomes me. I love the peace of everything neutral. I love the peace of the sea shore, "the edge of where the ocean meets the land".
And so in keeping with the way blogging works, I need to mention where I am located so the inter-webs can help you find me. I am your South Jersey professional photographer of families and children and of course the ocean. Do we actually call this part of the world South Jersey? I feel like if I write just New Jersey, I could end up having clients from way further than it's practical to commute to, you know? Hahaha. Well, enjoy my little birthday project, all taken May 27, 2018 in Ocean City New Jersey.
