thanks to the lovely Victoria, 300 bloggers have got together to speak about what inspires them. it's been amazing reading all the participating blogs, and now it's my turn.
I started writing about what inspires me in general, but had I continued we'd be here forever. how about what inspires me to press the shutter button?
the land I live in
the wonder of nature
the best of friends
a best friend who believes in me, who continues to show me the world through her eyes and who inspires me to be better.
the people around me
the camera in my hand
the film I shoot
there's nothing like pressing the button on a polaroid camera, and having people crowd around to excitedly watch the image appear in that little frame. film, both instant and not, has a special soul that keeps me going back for more.
the places I travel to
the quiet moments
it's those peaceful times when I'm alone in a light filled room, or watching the sun fade from the sky, that the urge to pick up a camera takes hold. unknowingly, till now I guess, I've always tried to capture the quiet times, the times I need most. when my mind is still, and all I can hear is the buzz of cicadas, rain on the roof or the beating of my own heart. the times when the only thought in my mind is "this", the now.
be sure to visit with the rest of today's bloggers, and tomorrow, check in with the lovely one pearl button who is following on from me.
