I glanced out our west kitchen window and caught a glimpse of the setting sun.
I hurriedly went for my camera and stepped outside for a few shots.
Don’t know why this was so important as I have a thousand photographs of sun rises and sun sets.
I snapped the sun from various angles and positions, but post only two images. It doesn’t really matter anyway. The sun shines and sets as directed by the Creator so where I stand to take a photograph really makes no difference. Nor does taking a photograph.
However, a photographer, like a painter or writer, envisions that perfect image he or she has in the mind. It is an intuitive thing, I believe.
These photos are nothing extraordinary, but possesses a part of me. I was compelled to take it for no other reason than to bring myself a bit of satisfaction.
I share them to encourage you…to make an impulsive leap towards something which brings you joy and fulfillment…even for a moment or two.
I’ve been ‘down in the dumps’ lately and needed a bit of inspiration. Without a job and striving to start a new career as an independent business, I feel a sense of fear and self-doubt. Yet, deep down inside, I know I can make this adventure work to my (and other’s) benefit.
Every photograph, and every typed or written word helps.
I am blessed.
