Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

I came across this image in a store window on one of my wanderings through Holland, and think it is encouraging and good advice. After some research I found out that this picture was drawn by Mary Engelbreit, an American graphic artist and children’s book illustrator, and that this is actually a cover from a book.

With this I would like to wish all my blog visitors a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you for your visits and comments, I appreciate it a lot. I enjoy visiting your blogs as well, please keep your blogging work going!

Stillness

06/05/2012

One of the books I picked up in the library inspired me enormously. It is called “Expressive Photography – The Shutter Sisters’ Guide to Shooting from the Heart”. Published by The Ilex Press in Lewes, United Kingdom and edited by one of the Shutter Sisters, Tracey Clark.

The Shutter Sisters' Guide to shooting from the Heart
Chapter 6 is called “Stillness” and it is written by Irene Nam. She talks about stillness in photography and the sense of peace that is to be found in moments in our daily lives, that often goes unnoticed. “It is about finding tranquility in the way we perceive the world around us and capturing it, no matter how chaotic and unpredictable the circumstances are.” This speaks to me because I am very much interested in capturing moments, people, and objects in our ordinary, everyday lives that we take for granted and do not notice, and make them visible.
