Throwback // Treasure hunting

I'm much too impatient to wait until Thursday to throw back in this post. 

For the past three days, I've been treasure hunting on my old external drive for pictures to upload to Getty, because why not. I've gone through thousands, thousands (a terabyte) of photographs from when I was 13 and 14 years old. I love them... I mean, most of them are crap. And it's a shame I didn't shoot RAW before freshman year, too. I could have saved so many shoots that were actually really good! Not to mention not being friends with any of my old models, so releases are a definite no-go. Everything changes. And sometimes it sucks, but all you can really do is enjoy the photos for face value; for what they are.

My favorite thing about looking through these is that there are just so many... I took pictures of everything. My camera went everywhere I did, and I loved shooting anything and everything. Even among the mountains of crap, there was a little bit of beauty in there. Just had to look for it. That's life for you.
