jakeegbert: Compared to yesterday...
Compared to yesterday today

Compared to yesterday... . Compared to yesterday today's seas were calm. But regardless of yesterday's seas today's seas could still have knocked you sprawling headlong into a pile of splintered driftwood, stolen your tripod, drenched your camera, and written disparaging remarks about you on the pit toilet wall if you weren't careful. . Comparing our challenges to another's is similar. You gotta tackle your own challenges today, regardless of what you or anyone else faced yesterday. πŸ’ͺ🏼 . . . Side note: we found lots of stuff in the debris left behind by the storm surge that cleansed the beach of photographers yesterday... 😳 Found: one tripod (not a really good one) an umbrella, two unmatched sandals, approx. 30 lighters, a ski binding, and a tattered mudflap with the silver lady nearly worn clean off. Oh, and I found again... but not buried in the debris -- He was standing ON it.πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ . . . . . . onderland isbeautiful nw _dropping_shots _captures _awareness _a explored

It wasn

Subtle Sunday Sunrise . It wasn't yesterday's sunrise this morning... But it never is! It's always today's sunrise you get to face each morning. . Just like challenges... You had them yesterday. Today's might be similar, but will bring their own unique spin. Tomorrow's challenges will most certainly be different, still! We face them all. And with optimism and fortitude, hopefully, we find the parts that will make us brighter and more enriched! πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ . .

jakeegbert: Diagnosis
The Rorschach test is a psychological test

Diagnosis . The Rorschach test is a psychological test in which a subject's perceptions of ambiguous inkblot shapes are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both. You've seen the test in a hundred movies and TV shows... Some psychologists use this test to examine a person's personality characteristics and emotional functioning. It has been employed to detect underlying thought disorders, especially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly. The test, not surprisingly, is named after its creator, Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach. . Um... Dr. Rorschach? THIS is what I see when I look at your inkblots. I think I have an underlying thought disorder... I guess what I'm saying is... . I got a fever... and the only prescription is more sunrise! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ€’πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ .

jakeegbert: If every sunrise were truly spectacular... NO sunrise

If every sunrise were truly spectacular... NO sunrise would be truly spectacular. πŸ€” . I guess that's why I'm so grateful for the gray drizzly mornings of the past week... The dreary gray drizzlers make the raging red sizzlers so much more special! . This spectacular sky show was the gift that January 2, 2018 brought to Portland. . Anyone got a line on Saturday's (tomorrow's) sunrise? πŸ”₯πŸ™πŸΌπŸ”₯ . . Separate silly topic: it felt like a whole lot fewer people saw my last post than normal (the silly one with my feet in it). I tagged it with a strange geotag... If you're 'liking' this post and didn't 'like' that one did you just not SEE that one? Or are you just not a fan of dangling feet like my friend ? Maybe it just LOOKED like Instagram was hiding my feet from you good followers? πŸ€”πŸ€£ Know this: if you read this far I think you're pretty cool. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ . . . . onderland isbeautiful nw _dropping_shots _captures _awareness _a explored avsquad

jakeegbert: Bro...
You reached down deep. You screwed your

Bro... . You reached down deep. You screwed your courage to that sticking point. You ignored the fluttering in your gut and the fear that seized your heart. In the face of everything that said it couldn't be done... you did it! . And... you are to be commended on some level for this, to be sure. . But were you too busy discovering that you COULD do it to even wonder if you SHOULD do it? πŸ€” . . 🀯 . . Alternate Caption: How many of Ansel Adams' famous photos would have had feet dangling in them if film weren't so expensive and if large-format cameras weren't so blasted difficult to use...? πŸ€” . . . . I'm tagging some folks that are way to classy to dangle feet in their photos. Real artists, they are. Not just schills in a beat up set of Keens! 🀣 . . . onderland isbeautiful nw _dropping_shots _captures _awareness _a explored

Was I crazy to put

Crazy Like That... . Was I crazy to put out a last-minute model/location call last night? . Was crazy for offering up a location and two gorgeous models, at least one of which was already asleep? . Were and crazy for allowing their mother to drag them to a mountain top at 7AM and 36 degrees F? . Probably . . But that's my kind of crazy!!! 🀟🏼 . . . . . onderland isbeautiful nw _dropping_shots _captures _awareness _a explored

jakeegbert: Happy Little Waterfall

Happy Little Waterfall . . I'm in Eugene tomorrow morning for the sunrise (if there is one). Let me know if you're in the area and want to shoot (or model) in the not-quite-freezing dawn... πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Also, I don't really know the area so drop me some suggested sunrise hot spots if you know 'em. πŸ™πŸΌ . I think we'll definitely be seeing more waterfalls in my feed this year... This is a simple little cascade that I photographed during a one-on-one workshop a couple of weeks ago. It made me happy. 😁 . . . . . onderland isbeautiful nw _dropping_shots _captures _awareness _a explored

As we ride

Pre-dawn Burn of Ages . As we ride off into the weekend let's not lose track of one fact. And that fact is that THIS happened this week... πŸ”₯πŸ”₯😳πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ We may not see such a sunrise for a while again yet but 2018 gave us flaming gold three times already. . Kinda makes me feel like just maybe... upon our deathbeds we may achieve total enlightenment. So... We got that goin' for us, which is nice.πŸ¦”πŸ€£ . What are your weekend plans? Strangely, I've got a hankering to go chase waterfalls... πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ New year. New me I guess. 🀣 . . Tagging some favorites.
