I’m sitting on my friend’s sofa in California right now! I’m here on a little inspiration vacation. The thing is, hopping on a plane to Caliornia isn’t a typical ‘thing’ for me to do. I’m such a home body… very content just to ‘be’ in my quiet world. I was telling my husband before I left how excited I was to see new things, take different photos, get inspired. I went on to say ‘I’m always photographing Ben, my walks, pretty cups, old bottles and books…This will be good for me. Right?’ I was feeling anxious about leaving home. I think I was trying to reassure myself, that this was a good thing.
I’m here, and YES I have seen all kinds of beauty and inspiration. I’m so grateful. California is just so beautiful. I’m so glad I took the leap to come.
The other night Myriam made a cup of tea and there it was in front of me, just waiting for me to take a picture. I’ve taken many photos this week, but this cup is one of my favs. Myriam’s home has so many splashes of the things I love; beautiful cups, old bottles…. art, and texture. There’s such comfort in the familiar. I love it all! I’ve been taking many photos of the things I love.
We are who we are. We can change things up, choose different locations…. and that’s so good. But it’s okay to be true to who we are, recognize what brings us joy…and love what we love….
Today I ask you, what brings you comfort, lights you up and begs you to photograph it? Share with us today.
December is almost here! Can you believe it? We have a new hashtag for the One Word photos, #ssdecember. Feel free to continue using #shuttersisters as well. Thanks so much for sharing your photos with us!
