A picture is worth a thousand words


I  love to write. Thankfully I do. But I decided I needed another outlet. So I bought myself a much-wanted camera that I could take better shots with for my blog etc. That's what I told my husband when he suggested one for my Christmas present.


Instead I've discovered that I'm in love with photography as well. A writer friend of mine told me good photos should capture the essence of that particular event. I like that thought. It makes me want to think more about what I shoot. Like I do when I write a scene for a book. It's also a great outlet to rest my brain and learn to look around me since I write about life.

So watch closely.

There might be a story closer than you think.

I have a love for photography too, Terri. Do you have an Instagram account? You might think about it now that you have that awesome camera. I love that picture. You have a knack at really seeing the big picture. Awesome, Terri!

Your photos are great. I love photography too... and it's a quick-to-complete activity too!! Unlike writing ;)

I got a camera last year but haven't used it much. You are inspiring me to get it out and use it more! :)

I really like your new header, and the results of your new hobby. Looking forward to seeing more of the world through your eyes as well as through your words.

Congratulations on your camera! I have a Rebel too, however it is about 5 years old now. And have had a photo blog for a few years now that I am now contributing regularly to again. It is great to see what others shoot as I think our souls show up in what we see through our lens.
