As a photographer I get to see some pretty wonderful things. I want to take you behind the lens of my life.
Picture Title: “JUICE BOX” Diversity| Innocence| Refreshment
Always meeting friends and colleagues for coffee?
When is the last time you met up for a juice box?
Picture Title: “SEE NO EVIL” Intuition| Commitment| Reality
In work and in love the truth is always there. It is our choice whether we are ready/willing to see it. Open up to what is real, uncover your eyes!
Picture Title: “REACH” Opportunity| Energy| Response
Every day we are faced with chances to expand- our friendships, our romances, our careers. And with each interaction and each decision comes an opportunity to grow. Pushing past our perception of our limits is the very definition of growth. Today, let’s step out of our comfort zone and reach!
Picture Title: “KNOCKING OPPORTUNITY” Awareness| Symbolism| Expression
The enjoyment of life is a matter of perspective. For this reason, love can be found everywhere. Seeing the best in people and moments can make each day an event. What can you do to make your ordinary day extraordinary?
Picture Title: “THUMBS UP” Experience| Acceptance| Enjoyment
Wise people will often say that the more they know, the less they understand. So perhaps true enlightenment comes from us accepting how little we really know. This picture reminds me that no matter how my life goes and no matter how long it will last, enjoying it is up to me. Are you giving your life the affirmation and encouragement it needs today?
Picture Title: “LOUD” Living| Dreaming| Expressing
There is a time for everything. A time to dance and a time to rest. A time to catch and a time to release. But this picture reminds me that there is a time to be quiet and a time to scream. Don’t let it all just build up- feel your life along the way, every day. So whether you are outgoing or shy, whether you consider yourself weak or strong, try to find a way today to do something out of the ordinary. Live. Out. Loud.
This week’s Weekly Shot is about hope.
Picture Title: “MAKE A WISH” Honesty| Belief| Release
What does it take to create the life you want? Sometimes we are so busy making things happen we forget to make wishes. But in the absence of birthday candles, we still have the power to ask for our dreams. Stop today, preferably somewhere beautiful. Take a moment to be clear with yourself about what you want. Make a wish, believing it will come true and then let the outcome go. You will certainly be amazed at what happens next…
Picture Title: “BLANK CANVAS” Crossroads| Possibility| Desire
Life is all about the journey, not the destination. But what if your path currently has you standing still? What if you don’t know where to go next? Maybe it’s time to seize the uncharted territory and write your own map. Or perhaps it’s time to simply enjoy the view…
“WONDER” Simple| Exciting| Discovery
It is easy to see our world through a clouded lens of experience, fear and damage. But children are blank slates, seeing the world as new and fresh, colorful and wild. Take some time today to notice a child noticing the world and allow a little wonder in.
“SHARE” Laughter| Warmth| Support
Whether you share an inspirational sentiment via email with someone or share a laugh over a cup of coffee, remember today that you are not an island because we are all in this together!
“DARE” Original| Authentic| Individual
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder than perhaps we should dare to be beautiful. Dare to see things differently. Dare to be comfortable in your own skin. Dare to be you.
This week’s Weekly Shot: “CHEER” Self Confidence| Positivity| Encouragement
This week’s Weekly Shot: “STYLE” Bold| Original| Expressive
What does “having style” mean to you? To me it’s about find your own voice- your own way of doing things and then moving forward in confidence. It’s about making sure you are having fun. This picture reminds me to add some red to the gray of life!
This week’s Weekly Shot: “PERFECT” Relative| Genuine| Unique
This photo wasn’t taken in a room full of people with cat-like face paint but it was taken in a room full of fearless souls. Self-expression can set you free and inspire those around you to do the same. There is no such thing as normal, and please- pardon the pun- but you are Perrrrrfect!
This week’s Weekly Shot: “PROTEST” Courageous| Idealistic| Individual
Dare to be different, dare to be you.
This week’s Weekly Shot: “CREATE” Color| Imagination| Expression
Paint your world today, whatever colors that bring you the most joy.
