My Angel?

So here I am, still in limbo, or in transit, and struggling as I try to be even remotely creative. Where has my inspiration gone to? This is like going through the process of giving birth, but nothing appears. Well aware of the pain and anticipation (much like the actual birthing experience), I decided to read a few pages of books and numerous blogs of other creative people. One of my favourite artists and bloggers is Hyatt Moore.

His latest blog certainly resonates with me at such a time as this. I thankfully and with appreciation share it here.

Maybe next time it will be me standing with my angel behind me.

Creating Beauty

There is no need to be a professional photographer to capture the beauty in and around the world.

By being intentional about taking photos, one can virtually “stock up” on spectacular moments every day! Not only that, but being creative and taking photos can have delightful after effects and bring you to a fairly good state of mind for the rest of the day.

  • take pictures
  • talk pictures
  • see pictures
  • share pictures
  • draw pictures
  • love pictures
  • live pictures

You might love it so much that, as the the Van den Bergs mention in their book Phototips, you could very well start using “building blocks” to start creating images instead of just taking them. It is a whole new way of seeing.

That is where I am right now. I want to use the little knowledge I have now to start building beauty.

Try it.

P.S. All these photos were taken by me in my daily life, and I took them without going out of my way to do so. What might happen if I put in a little more effort?
