Not just a pretty picture

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

A smooth, lavender latte, Belgian waffles with mixed berries and a stimulating conversation with a lovely, new photographer friend have left me with a heart stirring and mind running with thoughts and ideas. Ways in which to grow as a creative. There was talk of dreams and what makes a photograph art, talk of the importance of a connection with a photo. To not just take a picture for the sake of a pretty picture. It has to be more personal than that. I so love being able to connect with others in this industry…those who are like-minded but have their own way of seeing things. Getting into conversations can lead to all sorts of things and places. And as I walked down the city street back to my car, and the faintest of snowflakes fell from the silver sky, I felt a sense of new motivation, refreshed.

A sneak peek of another post to come…

    Ooo looking forward to this upcoming post.
    You are so good at articulating your words — you should write a book ;)

    This gave me goosebumps, and it’s not because of the snow…I hope you never get too busy taking pictures that you have no time to write. Your words are (almost) as beautiful as your photos. Ok, they are as beautiful. Thanks again for sharing. :)
    And I’m looking forward to that upcoming post, too.

        Hehehe, I think I would make a trip back for their lattes and raspberry waffles! I used to live just down the street from them and would go as often as my budget could afford. ;)
