My Love For You

You know, it is almost like you have been elusive to me in so many ways but at the same time, I also feel as if life sometimes may have fooled me, yet I know you are out there. In some form.  I mean, I am not able to describe it correctly but somehow I search for your face around in the faces that I see or for that matter I almost could hear your voice uttering those cute notings. Till this day, I thought all this could only happen in movies or maybe in dreams but I’ve been proven wrong and comprehensively so. You are literally everywhere…

Why haven’t I been able to say all that I want, show you all that I am, and give you all I have? I’ve been a big failure when it comes to personal relationships. I do not know why is God making me wait or what sort of a test is he seeking from me, I would never know , because this is a factor beyond my control.

So, wherever you might be in life,  know that I love you and you will be the one that lurked passionately in my dreams each night. Night after night. Know that I am always longing for you and your presence. Know that you will always be everything to me. Even though I might not mean anything to you but you must know, I love you. I always will.

I’ve tried to describe your beauty, your smile, your kind heart in words and I’ve found out that my words only begin to scratch the surface of what I feel for you. You are too amazing, too much of a wonder for any mere language to describe.

If I could be frank, I really want to express my feelings for you but I cannot. How could I, when those feelings take my breath away? How can I measure my love for you when that love compares to nothing else, and when that love exceeds all categories and all expectations. No words can express the reality of how I feel for you. Nothing can express my love for you because you are indescribable, and my love for you is something which can NEVER be measured.

You know, simply looking into your gorgeous eyes feels like I’m in a whirlwind of intense emotions. Just one brief smile from you feels like radiance and, shall I say, absolute joy. My heart just beats like it knows no bounds. From simple things, like when I see you “Like” my posts on social networking websites to stuff you utter everyday just brings joy to my heart. You’ve no idea how big a part you are, of my life.

I’ve always been a passionate and inherently positive person but until the day I actually met you, I had never before felt so much energy & to a certain extent, hope. I want you to know, I shall forever be grateful to God for making me meet you. It is such a pleasure to just know you.

You might not even know this but you have given me a heart full of love and days full of positivity and I will give myself to you always. Anytime. All the time.

For, I LOVE YOU…

Passion Won’t Make You Successful in Photography

If you’re relying only on being passionate for being successful in photography, then, I’m sorry to break that bubble but passion alone won’t keep you in business. It is the harsh truth, but there you have it.

I understand the fact that this will perhaps come as a big surprise to some because we are conditioned to hear the word ‘passion’ everywhere. It is highly spoken of at speeches and on television shows and what not, basically it is everywhere. It promptly shows up at the beginning when an idea is generally discussed; it is extremely exciting and very shiny as all new things are but passion is the first one to get out of the door and run away when it comes to tough times.

Yes, we need passion for it makes you feel alive, brimming with some sort of purpose in life. We love passion and more than that, we really do need it. You would agree that just hearing the word makes you feel happy & motivated.

But, like I’ve said a while back, it’s a very strange thing. It is extremely powerful to start with but at the first sight of problems, it is the first one to vanish. Essentially, that sparkle that I talked about in the beginning, that wears off pretty quickly. It just wants to show up, makes you really happy and then go away.

Passion is a temporary thing but that is perfectly fine, as that is how it is really supposed to be. It is more or a precursor to something better that’s to come. If I can put it bluntly, passion is the seed from which something known as “dedication” grows. And trust me when I say, dedication, that is the real deal.

Dedication makes you continue trudging on when times are hard. Or stay up late till night when your body is breaking down and crying for sleep. Dedication is exactly what pushes you towards making yourself a better photographer, a better business-person and perhaps a better person, overall.

So, to all my photographer friends, there’s just one thing I’d say – Embrace passion with both hands but please don’t expect it to stay forever. For, you must always remember, “Passion is what makes you pick up the camera, but dedication is what keeps it in your hands.”

Photography – Addiction or Obsession

My name is Bobby Roy and I am a photographer by profession. I do it for a living, day in and day out, on my off days, during holidays, and almost everything else; basically I do it all the time. I do it so much that sometimes I start wondering whether I do take any day off; whether I shoot professionally for a client or I am working on a personal projects, the camera rarely leaves my hands. Should it be added to the list of things to seriously consider as an addiction? Or is it simply just the pure unadulterated happiness that I derive from this art-form? I wonder…

You see, it is so easy to get overwhelmed when you are running such a business and dealing with personal life, some family obligations, etc. at the same time. If you want, you’d always have some or the other excuse to not do a particular job or pursue a particular hobby that you generally love; and the reasons which you give to yourself or to others will almost always seem legitimate to you. However, ever since I got myself into photography, I always made it a point to make photography my top-most priority in life, and eventually I automatically, some-how seemed to find time for it on a daily basis. I not only love shooting, I also enjoy writing about photography, my projects, and everything in between. It is a part of the entire package and I absolutely adore what I do for a living. Yes, there are days when you’re down or do not seem to draw inspiration or motivation, no matter what you do but that’s a part and parcel of any artistic endeavor that you take on.

Although, I specialize in automotive, weddings and travel photography, I feel nothing is the limit when it comes to pursuing projects on a personal level – one can shoot anything from still life, lifestyle, street to macro and colors & abstracts when it comes to personal projects. The world around us is a beautiful place and as much as possible, I would want to frame it all within my lens. I feel the camera is like an extension of my eye, of what I see. Otherwise, how can one explain the fact that I cannot go one day without holding the camera in my hand and creating pictures, even if that be 1 picture a day.

If you think it is a good thing, it isn’t, really. You see, apart from me, nobody else in my family really takes to photography like I do. The rest of my family has little or no interest in photography. Ofcourse, they try & support me in what I do but they don’t necessarily share the amount of passion (or shall I call it obsession!) that I have, and quite understandably so. I have seen them looking at me with a blank face when I get excited about a particular frame infront of me, or I would see the brilliant light outside and get super-excited, and run out with the camera. If you’re wondering whether I leave my camera ever, then, well…not really. I mean I do take my camera with me almost everywhere I go, but there are occasions I do not really take it out, just so to enjoy the moment.

You see, photography as a hobby can get quite lonely or even shooting professionally can get lonely at times, and I, as a person enjoy that solitude. But there is a greater love & satisfaction to be had with sharing that knowledge with people around you; people who love photography as much as you do. People who share (almost) the same amount of passion that you have for this art-form. Perhaps, people who are as addicted to photography as you are.
