Icy Blue



Although I'm super sick of winter at this point, yesterday's icestorm was visually stunning. As I played trivial pursuit with Jason in the light of our headlamps (power was out), I was also thinking about all of the photo opps I would probably miss because I knew I wouldn't get my butt out of bed early enough to seek them out. The problem is that my life has become so jam-packed that I don't have time to take photos just for the sake of taking them! I hardly have time to play trivial pursuit!

I didn't get up early this morning and by the time I drove in to open the gallery, most of the ice was gone. I managed a quick shot from the gallery door, but it's not the most inspiring photo I've ever taken. Or is it…

It does inspire me to not take photos like it anymore, to not miss photo opportunities, and to get my priorities straight. It's about something bigger than capturing a pretty picture, it's about taking the time to do things that make me happy. I recently went to a wedding photography seminar with David Jay (posted below) and his ideas and business practices all revolve around that concept. It's freedom! While creating more personal freedom may not be something that happens overnight, I resolve to work towards it!
