I’m not sure how much work the real-estate will have for me, but it’s been good pocket money and experience to learn more of my photography hobby. I have a lot of video footage to go through yet. I manage to finish one video thus far in the last 24 hours. I just made a quick 40 second add like production show casing one of the local park/beaches. I can’t really show those ones – but I can share a photo that I liked whilst out doing more video footage for my next project:
Cloudy day,I like the illumination happening here. Highlights one of the subjects the real estate wants videoed. Beach front and all. I also like the looming shadows for the expanse it brings to my own minds eye; which by the way has me and my wife seeing some of these photos differently. Shadows are not the enemy and you can’t have light without the dark and all that jazz … none the less … I think I will be on of few that likes this one.
Getting the drone into position can be quite a challenge as to thereafter tilting the camera just right … bla bla bla … This is my favorite Real estate shot for today.
On other fronts – things are getting out of hand with the eldest boy. Lots of manipulation going in with the other kids ringing to tell my wife and I what hopeless parents we be. My wife finally got jack of it and reminded them how it was that I actually lived in the streets and went on from there. I don’t like getting into comparisons – but this time I simply thought “you go you good thing!” – for so long my wife and I have been turned against eachother in these little button pushing games so many of us play – but this time, whilst my wife was using the comparison to highlight how grateful they should be as opposed to humiliating me and my wife – I just thought it was good to see her taking a stand with me for a change. It was a good change and felt good.
We can’t take too much more of the kids handing out the parental guilt and all the other BS that goes hand in hand with separating from the tit – Sigh … My wife is quite ill today as a result from all the stress – a reminder that some of us older ones need out space so so many years after the eggs have hatched. The welfare system currently has many young ones fighting to stay at home and is rather feeding the welfare mentality as opposed to providing a means for kids to integrate and become independent.
Both my wife and I have come up with a list of alternatives for the lad to spread his wings and cast his shadow somewhere more suited to his needs. The free rent and board can no longer be sustained with the ongoing stress of the now volatile and unstable dynamics that now have us all fighting again.
If it keeps up, we are going to move into a small place – but really don’t have the means right now – the kids are just going to have to realize we are not meant to be in each others pockets – if you can’t work – be grateful for the services that are there to help one eat, sleep and breath …
Not sure where its all going to lead – ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz I think my wife needs to stand more often by my side, so the kids can see that the game is up – No more shedding the guilt on our door – Door is still open, but not open to abuse anymore!
