Last March I started a new practice – take a photo every day, print it, pin it up on a board and notice the patterns that emerge. In the city, on the island, in the car — no matter where I am, I can see my own point of view more clearly when I take it out of the camera, off the computer screen and put it on paper. I’ve found the different aspects of my life fit together and make sense instead of feeling scattered and compartmentalized. Letting go of judgment of what I’ve created, following my intuition, letting it guide me, going back to the same spot over and over, taking a different route than normal, working toward my 10,000 hours to perfect my craft — these lessons and much more, all from this simple practice. Here are some of my latest favorites.
When the New Year begins, I encourage you to find a practice of your own — make your mark, do your doodle, find your rhythm, move your body, live YOUR life.
Sally and I plan to spend more time on our new website poppyandsallyphotography.com in the year ahead. We hope you’ll join us there. Happy Holidays!!
