Yesterday’s Daily Shoot was: Find something beautiful and make a photo. Don’t over think it.
What I find interesting is the response to this dailyshoot was. Okay, so there is a lot of flower/ plant photos. And there’s a fair few photos of people and animals.
But people have also posted photos of sprinkles, shadows on a tissue box, paperback books,and a bank deposit receipt.
I have to say, I like these photos more than other totally gorgeous photos.
Why? Because they actually stick out in my mind. These images resonate more because they aren’t something that on first glance I would really consider beautiful. But once you shift your perspective, then you can see the beauty in simple things like sprinkles or shadows on a tissue box.
As for my daily shoot, it was an idea born from several hours on tumblr combined with a loooooong car drive home and a dead camera battery. I borrowed my Mom’s really nice Nikon (so want to steal it!) and took this photo fairly quickly.
Why do I find this beautiful?
Well, even though many of my good friends are thousands of miles away, across seas and on different continents, they still make an effort to keep in touch with me. They send me cute letters, postcards, emails and even packages filled with things they saw and bought for me just because they knew I would like it. This photo goes out to all my beautiful friends who remind me constantly how lucky I am to have them in my life. <3
