Don’t know if y’all remember, but I re-opened my photo store via 500px recently…here it is !
Because they had changed their payouts rules in favor to the photographer; but they’re so complicated, they barely accept any picture for licensing. It has to be super basic, something they for sure know it would sell, or shot with a real high quality camera. So I’ve been struggling to get myself at over 20… and it’s not even my fave pictures.
That’s just not how I like to shoot, plus I don’t care about the quality so much, I’m more into this film-like aesthetic that I have going on, which fits me perfectly. Besides, I’m a hobbyist photographer, I ain’t gonna drop a large sum of money on a high end camera, when my iPhone already gives me incredible shots.
Anyway. I’m gonna have to move my sales to another platform ! I’m keeping 500px for sure, and I’ll update it as usual, but I need something where I can pick and choose what I want for sale, and have better options for myself. I guess I’m gonna be spending my next few days (and not weeks hopefully) at this research and make. 🧿 We’ll see what I come up with, xoxox.
While I was on my “internet hiatus” I actually edited quite a bit of pictures, because I still updated my instagram every little while… so I’m gonna share some of them with you on here, to give me some time to edit new pics !
Nothing crazy, just my life, as I’m enjoying my time at home, between my plants and my flowers, and my walks in the woods, and magical sunsets 🤍
A little peek into our home ❤️ that I share with my boyfriend.
We live in a wonderful little town, neighboring Paris. We are meters away from the Vincennes Woods, and we have a stunning view on it. I just love the openness into the sky, sunsets here are something else. Every day we get a show !
Even though we love traveling and going away on amazing trips together, there’s nothing quite like coming back home to this peacefulness.
So I started this creative writing thing with one of my friends, it was his idea, and it’s a great idea to kick off inspiration. Especially because I’m lacking of it at the moment, and I want to finish a book… I’m in a complete utter blank ! I’ll take all the help I can get.
The topic this time was “happiness” and my version of it.
I wish I could write out all those feelings that I have bottled up inside of me, but in truth it does hurt to say things the way they are.
And it’s a terrible feeling, because we all probably wish to be happily free from anything that ties us down. Being able to express yourself is liberating. I haven’t managed that properly yet, but I’m working on it.
It definitely goes hand in hand with my recovery process. This healing journey that I’m on, and how my mental health is affected through that. It’s an every day struggle to say the least, and it’s a fight… but it’s okay, I’m a warrior. And I’m damn good at fighting for myself.
So I’ll trust the process and surrender to positivity.
