I’m painting again and I’ve been having the urge to take photos so have started carrying my camera around more often. Just the act of taking the photo has made me stop and enjoy the view much more. I noticed too that some of my photos subconsciously influenced my paintings, without having intended this to happen.
I also tried going out early to photograph the sunrise. I was inspired to do this when I saw the beautiful photos taken by the6amjogger, so one saturday morning I bundled the children into the car at 7am to watch the sunrise. They really enjoyed it and I felt so alive!
