Being okay with okay

Museo-Tequila-Mezcal-View-From-SM

There’s nothing great about this photo I took in Mexico City of the view from the Museo Tequila y Mezcal. It’s a snapshot. It was taken in passing as I walked down a hall on my way out of the building. But I like it. I like the apricot highlights in the sky. The imperfect sun rays struggling to cast themselves on the dense and dark grey clouds, or the asphalt streets below. I like the little tufts of tree tops pushing past the old and weathered buildings. I like how it’s horizontally split in the middle by those trees, and that the cars look like miniature models (and I didn’t do any tilt shifting).

Something I’m starting to understand about myself is that I’m okay with okay. I’m okay that I’m not the best at any kind of style. I’m okay if I get stuck in how I’m drawn to darkness and how light plays on things. I know what works for me. I know what excites me about photography, and that’s what I will continue to share with you. Likes or no likes, this is for me.

Museo de Arte Moderno – Mexico City

You’ve probably noticed, but I like visiting museums. Here are some notable works  from the Museo de Arte Moderno. Museums are another way to escape reality, or enter a reality that another person has gone through. Art is so important. It’s an extension of oneself, an exploration of thought, the unconscious, the possible or impossible. It’s a reaction to how the world and others are treating each other. Here are a few pieces I liked. More from this museum on Flickr.
