Fuschia

Fuschia

It’s been a rough year for us. At a certain point, I felt my energy sapped, and I lapsed into being tepid regarding photography. But then I found book called, “The Practice of Contemplative Photography.” It addresses how taking a contemplative approach to photography–by learning to SEE what is lovely or intriguing in our supposedly ordinary lives–will improve our skills as photographers; but also how it will rebound and improve our skills at seeing ourselves and our lives. It was what I needed for a kick start.

The book presents certain challenges: the first is Color. We’re to open ourselves to be aware of flashes of color, stop, observe, perceive–and then shoot.

I’m going to work on this one for a while. This is the first: a brilliant fuchsia shirt on a young woman huddled over her work while seated at the counter at Barnes & Noble.

    The fuchsia is definitely an eye catcher! Nice to see you posting again. I’ve only started back myself after an artistic lull while busy with daily life busy-ness. Best to you!

    Thanks for the heads up on the photo book. Sounds like a great way to get the creative juices flowing.
    Love the bright splash of color.
