“Art is both the taking and giving of beauty, the turning out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit.”
~ Ansel Adams
I have not down very well with Every Damn Day in June this week but were in the past I would have hated that fact I am actually philosophical about it. I had a day where my sites where down and that kind of had a knock on effect on my whole week. Usually I would have battled to keep up and make up what I had missed. This week I just rolled with it. I feel good about that.
I have quite a few posts I want to write over the next 10 days or so. If I manage even half of the ones I would like to write I will be happy with that. One thing that I am really enjoying at the moment though is my photography. I miss getting out in the woods etc with my tripod and camera but I have set myself the goal of doing just that before the end of this month. I also have uncovered a few images from shoots I did a couple of years ago that I actually never got round to editing. Those are on my to-do list as well. My images often inspire my words so hopefully that might help with the writing part too.
I have always started sharing an image a day on Twitter. Currently I am up to day 30 and have no plans of stopping. At first I thought I would do a months worth but I am enjoying it so much and it is a place where I can share portrait aspect ratio images that I sometimes don’t share here because as a general rule landscape aspect ratio tends to look better. I don’t know how long I will keep it up but if I am honest I have always wanted to do a 365 on my twitter account and I am starting to think this will turn into that. No promises mind but if you want to find what I have done so far here is the link to the first post in the thread.
As Ansel said, art is both the taking and giving and I am finding joy and happiness in doing both.
