A Gem In My Life

I said in my last post that in the year of 2012, while I was away, I really got into photography. I've always enjoyed it, but I've recently learned to love it as well.

I love looking through a camera lens to focus in on a subject. The sound of the shudder when I take a picture has become like music to my ears.

I often take my camera with me when I leave the house, even if I'm just going grocery shopping. I never know what I might happen upon. One of the main reasons I love photography is because I'm a very creative person and I love to use my imagination. Some people get carried away to different lands in books that they read. Others actually travel to different lands. lol.

This girl gets swept away by raw, unique photos. Something as simple as a photographed coffee cup can take me on an adventure. Even old photos of friends or family that take me back give me a different appreciation for photography.

I get a warm feeling when I scroll through others people's photos too, because I don't know the story behind it, which allows me to be creative and come up with my own story.

It might sound absurd to you but that's how I feel.

Since I've now expressed my deep love for the creativity and art of photography, I thought I'd share some of my recent photos with you.

Such pretty photos! You do a good job. I think my favorite is the one with the tree and the water. I love how the tree is reflected.

You're back?? YOU'RE BACK! *squeals in joy*
I decided to take a peek at your blog this evening, and I'm glad I did!
I'm sorry 2012 was such a hard time for you, it kind of was for me too, in the sense that I too, and my family, was hurt time and time again by people we thought were friends. But we grew stronger as a family, and it very much sounds like you did too. I continue to pray for you, and especially your father, I just wanted you to know that.

Lots and lots of love,
Gwen
