First, I want to tell you that I love Otto’s post Humanity Captured. Ha ha… Seriously, I have written several posts on what I have learned at Otto’s workshop. It was through that workshop I’ve built my foundation of photographing and what a strong foundation it is. Thank you, Otto.
We were in Scottsdale for several days. Living in Minnesota for almost 40 years, we have never run away from the cold weather until this winter. I am afraid this has nothing to do with the weather, but something to do with our age. Maybe Florida or Texas next year since now I have good blogger friends there (you know who you are 😉
Scottsdale’s scenery is very different. My first thought was that I could only capture the beauty of the land via a panoramic view. These were taken with iPone6.
But later, I did see other possibilities.
Blogging is fun. I enjoy sharing my stories, thoughts with all of you and I also enjoy reading yours. But, when it became like an addiction, I was concerned. For a while, I would rather write or read blogs than doing anything else. It was quite clear that I need to do a better job in balancing my time. I should focus on life, not on blogging alone. (Yes, I am cutting down my blogging time. Still, I will happily blog whenever I can.)
My New Project
“Look! You are Beautiful!” is my new project. (If you have read my posts on Passion and Purpose part 1 and part 2, you would understand what this project means to me.) My idea is to take photos of those who are currently having difficulty in their lives (for whatever reason), and give their photos to them. It’s my hope that they would be able to see how beautiful they are no matter what is happening to them at this moment.
To be honest, I have no idea how this going to work. I left a message to a lady who is giving away free meals once a week. I am hoping she will let me go and take some photos. I would like to convince her that people need food not only for their bodies, but also for their souls. Wish me luck. (Thanks! 😉
