I love photography. I really do. I really really do, but i have found the last few months to be an unmotivated self critical self-depricating void. In other words i haven’t given myself the freedom or the space to create. Consequently the other aspects of my life have suffered.
Today i read an article on 500px. I didnt really engage with the article and the suggestions were almost pointless (why im not sharing the link). It did however remind me that i do actually want to take pictures. My twitter feed was full of hundreds of worldphotographyday posts and i just happened on a scene with aome very dramatic lighting.
My wife had cooked supper on the barbeque and left our window open. Smoke filled our room and the setting sun cut a sharp beam through the swirling smoke. At first i just took pictures of the “cool smoke”. An amateur mistake forsure but then my daughter happened into my room with her mettalic winged butterfly. She was excited to dance and play in the smoke and the sun reflected off the butterfly wings making a magical bright glow.
Here is the result…
Happy world photography day!
