I woke up today needing to photograph words. In those early morning hours, I honestly wished I knew why.
In taking photos every day, I have realized that some of my photos are inspired, some are the result of patience and waiting to capture a story, and some images (because I spend a lot of time looking and seeing what’s going on around me) unfold before me. Other photos fulfill another purpose; they satisfy a personal need. The latter being the most difficult for me, since the reasons behind what I need are not always clear.
Taking photos this morning was challenging. My initial search for words offered results with neither meaning nor purpose; I was definitely trying too hard to make a photo happen and forcing a photo never works for me!
I put my camera down for a bit. When I stopped trying so hard, I found the words I needed, right on my computer monitor. (Thanks, Jackie!)
When I read these words, I knew that I had found exactly what I needed and understood why I needed to find them.
This photo serves as a personal reminder to continue doing what makes me happy; I hope that you continue to do the same!
