Blog Writing Challenge My photography

What am I excited about?

Today’s challenge is for me to write about something that I am excited about. Honestly, I believe in, and feel so deeply about everything I do. When I do something, no matter what it is, I do it full force and with all I am inside and out. I go out of my way to do months or even years of research. No matter how long it takes me, I do everything 110% and with everything in my soul. It is exhausting the majority of the time but it has become who I am.

When I was little, no one ever took pictures unless it was a special occasion, well at least in my family that’s how it worked. This whole act of taking pics, or lack-there-of, set the stage for my obsession with taking pics.

I have always been a “picture person”. There was even a joke going around the family years ago that no one really knew what I looked like because I constantly had a camera, of some sort, in front of my face.

I believe, a picture can tell so much about the subject of the picture, and it speaks even louder of the person taking the picture. It can really tell you about the mental state of the photographer and how that person sees the world. Just the ability alone to be able to see life through the eyes of someone else is absolutely amazing to me. To experience the same exact situation but see it through a totally different perspective is so fascinating. Or, to be able to live my life as normal, but live through pictures of someone else at that exact same time, half way around the world is, amazing. That is the impact I live for.

Lately I have been taking my pictures a lot more seriously and it seems to be paying off in my favor. I went out and bought a professional camera with professional lenses and just having the camera in my hand makes me happy and at peace with myself. I got the camera with no expectations of an outcome but I seem to be quite good at taking pictures and editing them. So far, so good. I have got a long way to go but I am starting off on a great foot and from here it can only get better. I plan on taking a few photography classes just to learn the more advanced settings but at this point writing and taking pictures are what soothes my soul. I love it….I live for it! I am so excited to learn and get better at doing both, writing and photography that it is literally all I think about. I have started a “My Photography” category within this blog, please feel free to stop in and let me know what you think.

Hi there! I'm Beth and this is my life and my little corner of the world. Some would call this a "lifestyle blog" and it is to a point, but it is for all who struggle with the daily whirlwind of life. The ones, that just need a someone to identify with. Someone that understands when all is against you, maybe even a place for a quick escape, even if only for a moment. This blog will cover such a wide variety of things that at times it won't make sense, but in the end it all will tie together, maybe not "perfectly" but it will all tie together. I am a mother of two amazing, grown boys and a Nana to the best little 6 year old boy anyone could ask for. I am also a wife of over 2 decades....TO THE SAME MAN! 😂 He is one of the most wonderful and most brave man I have ever met....and the one who will put up with me. I struggle sometimes, life gets hard, life is depressing, overwhelming, and sometimes everything seems to go all wrong, but in the end it's all about your attitude and how you deal with it. Nothing is perfect no matter how bad you wish it to be. I am not perfect, neither is my life, nor is this blog, but I hope along the way that you find at least a moment of peace within my writings. Please feel free to contact me, leave a comment, or just follow along and read at your leisure, whatever makes you comfortable. Thanks for visiting and happy reading. ❤📕
