PAIGE NELSON

My name is Paige.

I'm an aspiring photographer with an insatiable curiosity and an appetite for the fantastic.

This blog is dedicated to my greatest passion- photography. All of the photos on here are mine unless otherwise stated.
4/52: To the Moon on Flickr.I’ve heard a lot of people say that sunsets are overrated, especially photographs of sunsets. Try as I might, I still can’t understand why. 
Coming from someone who chased the sun daily for over a year, I still consider myself blessed when I can escape, even for a minute, to watch it disappear on the horizon. Not all sunsets are created equally, but each tell their own story.
Photographs don’t always need a planned concept or special effects to be beautiful- sometimes we’re just lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to tell the story that’s already there. 
You lived another day and will wake up tomorrow with a new beginning. What message could be more beautiful than that?

1/52: Keep the Dream Alive on Flickr.
No matter what anyone tells you, the American dream is not dead. It lives inside each and every one of us who has ever been passionate about something, passionate to do something bigger than ourselves. As Adrienne Bush once said, “Be defined by your ideas, your heart, your light…not by the negativity of others.” Don’t let that spark die. There will be some people throughout your life who will try to extinguish it…keep it alive. Live the life of your dreams and don’t be afraid.

139/365: Falling on Flickr.Via Flickr:Sometimes I wish for falling
Wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air
To give me some relief
Because falling’s not the problem
When I’m falling I’m in peace
It’s only when I hit the ground
It causes all the grief
Florence and the Machine
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I love Florence.
I’m so happy it’s summer because I have time for expansions. :)

138/365: Spectrum on Flickr.Via Flickr:When we first came here
We were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
We were light and paper thin
And when we first came here
we were cold and we were clear
With no colors in our skin
‘Til we let the spectrum in
Say my name
And every color illuminates
We are shining
And we will never be afraid again
Florence and the Machine
Cheez. You should view large.

118/365: Comfort Me on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Feist is such an inspiration to me.
“When you comfort me
It doesn’t bring me comfort actually
When you comfort me
True life in haiku
And balances of phrase
Out of the blue
And meaning shown to you
Where does sadness see?
The mirror has a mirror in his teeth
That’s what sadness sees
Big sky, tiny bird
And when the paragraph betrays the word
Big sky, tiny bird”
