Do you remeber watching the movie “Freaky Friday” as a kid? [They also updated it with Jamie Lee Curtis in 2003.] The whole premise is wanting to be somebody else so badly that you wake up one Friday morning & you are… and what we learned was that it’s not always what we see that’s what we want. Perhaps it’s just the mere perception of what we see.
I sometimes think of taking photographs that way. What my Artistic eye sees isn’t always what’s in front of the lens. I use cropping methods, lighting techniques, and angles to involve my audience into something they may not have seen if they had been where I was looking. I like to engage people into the scene sometimes. Get them engaged with their senses other than eyes. Invole a response:
“That reminds me of our vacation last summer…”
“Can we go there to see that?”
“Where in the world was that taken?”
** Make sure to check out the 30 Day Challenge photos. At the end of this month I’ll be asking you to vote for your favorite!!
Examining Passion vs. Goals:
Recently read a blog entry from Mom Drop Box. She explored the differences between passion & goals. Interesting entry. I liked the last paragraph she wrote & wanted to share it with you:
“I think it’s good to assess your life, and change what you can in a way to make your life sync with your goals and passions. But it’s also good to realize that sometimes, there are trade-offs, and in those times, it’s okay to be at peace with the fact that we really can’t have everything we’ve ever wanted all at the same time. ”
Happy Friday, everyone!
