Kat Sloma has a great series of lessons and challenges called Exploring with a Camera, I always learn something interesting and I like the way they are paced, with a bit more time to work on the challenge. I was convinced her Rimmed with Light challenge was beyond my skills - I just couldn't get the technique to make sense in my head - until I visited a local garden one evening. Quite by accident I started to notice how the setting sun was affecting some of my photos and things clicked. I got a couple of shots I loved - and even though she's moved on to the next challenge, I was so excited to finally "get it" I just had to share.
Am I the only one who learns this way - you read something over and over and it just doesn't seem to make sense, you walk away from it for a while and then, suddenly it is staring you in the face?
I can't seem to get enough of Peter Bradley Adams - his music is so amazing. As I drove home from the garden, this song came on and it had me dreaming of a love just like the one described in the lyrics.
Peter Bradley Adams - For You
Then his I Cannot Settle Down came on and I remembered that my restless need to travel and explore doesn't make that dream of finding very easy. I love it when listening to a couple of good songs results in hours of reflection.
