Just a year ago I was about to finish an online photography course with Kat, and most of my blog posts dealt with what I was learning along the way. It’s been amazing to look back, read and ‘see’ where I was as a photographer then, and think about how I have changed and grown.
That’s why I chose this image for the August photo heart connection. That burst of light represents so much. It’s about being there at a time when you can experience the beauty of nature and the morning sun. It’s also about learning to move around a subject until you find the image you want to capture. And it’s about knowing more about the camera and how to use it’s settings to play with that fabulous light.
More importantly, to me, is being still,
as still as the water in the pond that day,
still enough to listen to what is in my heart,
still enough to let that light dance and draw me in.
