shooting with happy thoughts

\

To make me think happy thoughts on my last day of maternity leave I took my new camera for a spin. While I was driving through the town I grew up in, this wall caught my eye . I got charged up to go photograph it and froze my tush off while doing it. But while I was outside shooting I realized all my negative thoughts were gone. I felt recharged and a little less cloudy. That's why I love photography, it makes you open your eyes . Today mine opened a wee bit more.

Then I realized that this past summer I used this same spot for engagement photos as well. This shot made me very happy back then too.



I had another photo from today over at A Crooked View

I like shooting happy thoughts

I have walked in these shoes - on the eve of a daycare drop off. I can't lie, it's not easy. But I'll be praying for you. Praying that your sweet babygirl will get more hugs and loving than you could ever imagine!

I've seen that wall... where have I seen that wall? It's driving me mad trying to figure it out.
