The first time I saw my love.

This story is about a photographer destined for greatness, and it all started on March 17th 2003. It was a normal day at Phineas Banning High School, she was going to her classes and nothing seemed any different she had gone to her photography class like she always does, but she had never before created a photograph that she thought was any good. Blurry photos, processed wrong, scratched negatives, she thought of herself as a really bad artist and she was about to give up in till the end of the semester and I will never take photography again, she kept on repeating to her self in disappointment. She goes into the darkroom to pass the time and she found a picture of her sister Shanalee she might want to print for her mother as a present, so she makes an attempt to make a good print and you know what she actually did. Her mouth hung open when she took it out to dry and all she could say is “O” My GOD ! I did it she said over and over I printed an actual photograph that did not suck. So enthusiastic she showed her teach Mr. Alvarez, he paused and then said I told you, you can do it, all you needed to do is to believe in yourself, anything is possible. She goes home that day and tells her mom that she wants to be a photographer. And you know what her mother said if this is really what you want to do than never quit no matter how hard it gets.

If you have a dream follow it, No excuses we live only once so live your dreams before they become nothing but memories of what could have been.

I am fighting that same fight five years later, for I know I am destined for greatness.

The first time I saw my love.
