I was fortunate enough to see the B-29 Doc’s first flight since it was restored. Doc’s last flight was in 1956 and came to Wichita in 2000. I was in highschool at that time. I remember it being such a big deal when Doc was delivered to Mcconnell. Seeing Doc fly has made an impression on me that I will not likely forget. For one thing, Doc means a whole heck of a lot to a lot of people. It’s also a reminder that my photos are not for me, but the aviation community as a whole. I have been so fortunate meeting people, and strive to continually learn, which it was a learning session for me as well.
After seeing Doc fly we went to Dallas. Today we went through the Presidential Library of George W. Bush. He is one man I do look up to. Not because I agree with everything he’s done, but the down to Earth he portrays to be, and that he tried to do the best for the country. I’m not getting into politics here, but if I could meet the men I admire, he would be one of them.
As I have been doing photography, and even the trip to the Library has taught me, I can continue to learn and improve, but I was created the way I am. I am designed a specific way, and that is OK. Photography is an outlet for me, something I enjoy, and allows me to chase my dreams. I have no idea what the future holds, but I have many dreams. I don’t need to be the most outgoing of people, nor do I need to be the best at any one thing. Photography is about living the dream, and purusing it through thick and thin. For me, it resembles my life in persevering. I am exciting for what the future holds, and can’t wait to see it.
