What’s up guys it’s your boi Dave 😅. Fire starts with a sparks, ignites with kindling and is sustained with logs. So is a passionate and full life. What are you adding to your fire? Are you putting it out with things you think are kindling but is really water? Let’s all have sustainable fires in our lives filled to the brim with joy ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . #ig_exquisite #ig_shotz #global_hotshotz #superhubs #pnw #master_shots #exclusive_shots #pnwonderland #jaw_dropping_shotz #worldshotz #theworldshotz #pixel_ig #photographyislifee #photographyislife #photographysouls #photographyeveryday #photographylover #worldbestgram #iglobal_photographers #ig_great_pics #ig_myshot #shotwithlove #justgoshoot #xposuremag #icatching #collectivelycreate #wanderlust #heatercentral #highsnobiety #shotzdelight
