Last night, my mom and I went out to eat at our favorite restaurant. We got to talking with our waitress, who told us all about her love for photography and her aspirations to earn her Master’s Degree so that she may one day teach photography at a university. I love meeting people like that who know what their dreams are and who believe in making those dreams their reality. I like to think I’m like that, but sometimes I wonder if, even though I wrote my book and am trying my best to get it out there, maybe I not quite brave enough. Some days, I think I’m doing the absolute best I can, but most days I think, “No… there’s a lot more you could be doing.” I just need to figure out what those things are.
In the mean time, however, our discussion last night reminded me of my own love for photography, and how I enjoy nothing more than spending the day outside on a warm sunny day (not today) and taking pictures. I know this blog is predominantly for my writing updates, but I thought that I could take a day to share my other passion with you.
