August 9, 2014 (Part 2)

I can't decide if I will be writing on this side of the notebook.

So I'll skip for now.

- my coffee has gone cold -

I've been doing a lot of things recently, more on personal growth and improvement. I'm currently studying learning the Spanish language and I just started on learning journalistic writing (unfortunately this entry does not benefit from that). I have also started getting back in shape. It has been more than 10 ten years since I last went to a gym.

But during the last 14 months my photography [endeavors] has been on a rut, to say the least. No dedicated shoots, 10 photos posted, no blogs, [nada]. My backlogs have reached the 200 GB mark which stretches back from our trip to Japan, maybe [farther].

- I ordered another coffee -

This morning's photowalk and this writing is a __________ to jumpstart my comatosed hobby. It's been too long.


I woke up around 6:45 [in the] morning with a sunrise shoot in mind. Before sleeping last night I checked  what time the time when the sun would rise and Google said 7:05. The plan was [to] walk around the vicinity of Plaza de Armas and sit down at this very cafe and write something - this. By 7:15 I was in the subway and 15 minutes later I was in the station beside this cafe. Funny (or is it tragic?) thing about catching the golden hour here in Santiago is the hour seems to really an hour.
