Open Your Eyes

So folks, as some may know, I'm now a full time photographer.  What does this mean? It basically means that I'm essentially broke and have to beg for jobs!  Seriously though, it's a whole different life than that of cooking in professional kitchens and so far, I have to admit, I really like it.

There is the obvious transitional period that one goes through when going from a job with specific hours to one without; structure and organisation are key to success.  That doesn't mean that you can just work all the time either! It's important to set aside time for fun and make sure that you don't always have that nagging feeling "I should be productive" in the back of the head all the time.

So today, on a lazy sunday afternoon, I decided to walk around my house and look at the nice little lawn/garden thing that I'm fortunate enough to have.  I shot about 15 images of various mosses and grasses and tree trunks and ants and holes-in-things and nature in general.  I didn't have any financial benefit from this, obviously.... no one is paying me to shoot pictures of my lawn.  But it's important to realise that when you choose to do something you love for money that it should NOT ALWAYS be about the money.  Keep the love in it.

So of all the pictures I shot today there was 1 (ONE) good one, and that's what I love.  I saw it and shot it and processed it and I got what I wanted... 

Thanks for reading and enjoy....
