Sifting through my digital camera memory card I discovered several shots that I thought were worth sharing. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about feelings? How do certain shots make you feel? What emotions get stirred up? And how do you react to those emotions?
These are just simple flower pictures, but if you just try to appreciate the simplicity and beauty, you might find they say more to you than you initially thought.
So many things can't be put into words, so when you try to express yourself, what do you try to convey? Instead of using the stream of consciousness technique, try something different and think of just one word that each picture makes you feel. Can you find a positive direction to go with those feelings?
Give it a shot and see what you come up with.
Thanks for reading. Questions and comments are welcome.
I realized it's been a while since I posted some original photos from my excursions in and around the San Diego area. Recently, my daughter and I went to the Wild Animal Park in Escondido. It was a decent time. I would recommend, that if you are going there, make sure you get on the trams and safari tours. You simply can't appreciate the place the way its intended if you don't.
We did get a lot of walking around done, and with an eight year old, that's saying something. I did get a few pictures taken, several of which came out well, so I thought I'd post them up for your consideration. Remember, I'm not a professional photographer, just a novice. Hopefully I've captured something that will inspire you.
This is a great view of most of the park from a balcony. The picture doesn't do the landscape justice, I'm afraid.
Here's a little waterfall along one of the walking paths.
This was my favorite shot of the day. I'm not sure what flower this is, but the color just blew me away.
This guy wouldn't stand still for very long so I'm surprised this shot came out at all. Looks like I got lucky.
These trees struck me as other-worldly. Talk about exotic.
I took a lot more but these are my favorites. Sometimes, I get a real blast of inspiration for my writing when I look at certain pictures. Hopefully you'll get a sense of that too. Feel free to comment or ask questions. Thanks for reading, and viewing!
