My other passion photography

what a year
it seems like last year at this time I was wondering if we would ever recover from Hurricane Sandy. There was so music destruction.
I am happy to say many businesses , homes schools and Churches are making a nice comeback.
  This was also a good year of DJ gigs for me.
Although its not in my profile next to my love of music is photography.You probably figured that out, right?
 I got my first camera when I was 12 years old.It was a polaroid.Does anyone remember the smell of the film when it was appearing when your peeled the top layer off?I loved that smell.then as the picture came into view you waited to see how good it came out?
The camera after that was a Kodak instamatic.
I still have an old photo album with some pictures in it.
\OK well super fast forward heres a few recent pictures..with stories

Friemds and mixes

this year was a good year. I made a few new friends  through making mixes. though youtube and facebook I made friends and sent them mixes. I hope 2014 has as much success musically as this year did.
In 2014 I must pay more attention to my IMP page.
OK for those who don't know that's short for
a group of folks who still love making mixes in this day of mixcloud and so on.
I also an gaining quite in rep in the vinyl community page on facebook and on youtube. folks still enjoy CD mixes.

Music and Random Chatter

2 weeks ago I met up with 2 friends of mine who gave me a nice bagful of CDs. Im holding out on serious listening because that would give me the urge to buy more music if I didn't have enough music for the mix. I asked my sister for a few CDs for Christmas. I deliberately forgot what they were so I would be surprised at Christmas.
 Its been over a month since I bought any music. Watching everyone else show the latest music pickups on youtubes Vinyl community group is like taking a recovering alcoholic into the liquare store. Its like walking into a candy store when your on a diet. Dayam!
 not that I don't have enough songs in my iTunes now to make a mix but I have ideas for a mix but want to finish sending out my Christmas mixes first.
 It will be worth the wait I'm sure.
    Yesterday I went to the Beach House to deliver a few Christmas mixes. On the way there it appeared that folks were on the newly built platforms at The Mount street Beach. Luckily I had my camera with me so I went to check it out. I started shooting a video when I woman approached me asking if I needed a pair of gloves.I told her I had some and thanked her.
 Wow a total stranger offered me a pair of gloves. There are still some good people in the world.
   In the mainstream media you here about some acts of kindness but not enough. Watch the news and what do you see?
 They focus on the negative NOT the positive.
     We all have the power to change the world for the better. We all have the power to spread joy and positivity in our day to day lives. Whether its offering a pair of gloves to a stranger or offering food to a homeless person on the street we all have the power to bring happiness and hope into someone else's life and make their day better. We need to love more,laugh louder and Dance more. Perhaps if we focus more on the positive it might make a difference!
