“Kodak in Dreamland”, by Nicole S. Young. Created with an infrared-converted camera.

It’s easy to get wrapped up in worry about what’s next. Looming deadlines, clients awaiting photos, bills due. All of these things, and (oh so many) more will always be there, always beckoning to us from the future, reminding us that they exist. And they will always exist.

So, what happens when the deadlines are met, the invoice is sent, and the debt is paid? I’ll tell you what: more of the same. Another deadline will approach, more clients will be waiting, and more bills will pile up. You cannot hide from the future, it will always find you. But you can live this moment, right here, right now.

Today is the only day that you can cherish. Always today, only today. Live it well.

    Hi Nicole,

    Awesome pic.

    just wondering what infrared range did you choose when converting your camera? and which vendor for the conversion process did you use?

    Thank you.

      The camera is a rental from I am considering converting one of my own cameras, and if/when I do I’ll be sure to post about it. :)
