I’ve Learned…

I’ve learned…

that doing the right thing is not always the easy thing

waiting for results, is TIME… Doesn’t happen over night

a hug is to pain, and a band-aid is to a cut

good intentions mean that another person failed to understand or see the reason behind your actions

that it’s not a matter of IF but WHEN you hurt someone you love

to know great pain, is to know great love

to never presume the good OR bad

true friends want the best for you, not for themselves

there’s a fine line between being generous and being taken advantage of

It’s not about winning, it’s about saying you tried

letting go is not as bad as holding onto something that shouldn’t be

when you think you are in control of life… is when life’s in control of you

moderation,  is one of the most important, single word to live by

that happiness is not based on any part of a materialistic world

a genuine smile is the best thing you can wear

that the admittance of struggles is a sign of strength

the more I learn, the less intelligent I feel

A Recipe

This is my recipe to maintain a sound body, and sound mind

Most of the time… 🙂

It is a lot of things, and sometimes I don’t need to do it all,

but if I want to keep my mind and body in the right place, well I thought I would share this.

First of all, everything in somewhat moderation, but that is different for everyone I suppose.

I am avoid junk/processed food say..85% of the time

The other 15% is called PMS fools. Deal with it

Eat what I would say a balanced diet, avoiding gluten, sugars, simple sugars and having plently of EGGS and veggies

Limit coffee to a cup a day, and try only 5 days a week


Lots, but the main ones are OMEGA 3, FULL spectrum amino acids, Vitamin D, MCT Oil, and digestive enzyme.

No big deal

I get my 7-10 hours of sleep.

Take Melatonin to ensure I sleep like a boss

I inject B12 in my leg for stress, and increase in energy once a week

( I do not advise this unless you’ve seeked a medical professional)

EXCERSIZE! Change it up, absolutely once a week no questions asked, BUT

usually 4-5 times a week workout

Music, yes! music, lots of it

And I like the stuff no one else listens to…. so not the radio is what I’m saying, BUT sometimes I like some mainstream tunes too.

this gets me in the ZONE!

Photog time.

Photography is that hobby that gets me out of the house and brings out my creative side.

Well this is  the bulk of it. There are many little things I do, but I must say one thing, it’s not that I”m crazy, it’s just a lifestyle I do to live a full and enjoyable life

YES YES, I eat chocolate, and laze around and watch tv sometimes,but that is not my lifestyle

Get it?

I am back!

…After a long ‘holiday’ away from my WhitestWash Blog, I have returned to take care of my neglected site.

My energy and focus has been on photography itself, life, work, website, and NOW blog it baby!

I’m hoping to post about what’s happening in WhitestWash’s Life, as well as others that are involved.

Photo tips, photo posts, Photo-shop tutorials, self-portraiture, life tid-bits, music (since it inspires me to work hours on my computer at times)

Those are some topics that will be covered in this blog.

I hope there’s something on that list that interests you! And if not, well your loss 😉


And I will chat at you soon enough

Srsly…wttrash is S.A. thinking

The good ol’ town so many of us reside in, or at one time have stopped in the local Timmies for a cup o’ hocho.

Well… sometimes this town shows it’s colors in ways that make us shake our heads in confusion.

For example :

Ummmmm sooo this once was a sketchy DQ place… then a “FISHY EATS” now some awful burger / fish/ breakfast place.







Or check this out:

This poor dude’s been suckered into lowering his manly self-esteem great amounts by holding a sign to buy pizza….

Wonder how many people honk…









And the place we all so wish we had time to go to:

WAIT!!! What if I’m only 18 and I REALLLLLLY want to go to Bingo???\

Dagnabit…(think that’s how you spell that) I CAN’T.

OO boy one more year and I get to play with the 69+





But… It does have it’s perks… and can be a beautiful place, with beautiful people.


Create A Story

Tips on Giving depth to Your Photo-shoot

1) Does not matter who you are taking pictures of, or what, work with it.

Create a character as similar, or unsimilar to their own character…

2) Create a story!

Where are they?

What just happened to them?

Are they happy? Are they melancholy?

Decide those things for them.

3) Setting.

Yes it’s important.

Doesn’t matter where really… more like WHAT might be distracting or taking away from the story.

Too many branches around… signs… cars that look out of place.

You want the attention where it should be.

4) Lighting.

If the lighting is gloomy and it needs to be sunny, be prepared to use a software to add warmth, OR change the date.

If it’s sunny and you want it gloomy, choose shadows, and perhaps a ‘gloomy’ location (cemetery etc.)


The biggest thing is details, and it shouldn’t take too much effort, if it is let it go a little.

Have fun, and if your idea isn’t working then just re-think it.

Good luck!
