I've read that it is a good creative idea to have a photographic theme that you pursue over your creative lifetime. I suppose it gives you a fixed reference to measure your progress and to try different approaches...a friend said her dad took a photo of an empty chair wherever they went, and he had hundreds of them. Or maybe I read that somewhere. Anyway, I thought that was a neat idea. I've been thinking what mine might be. The chair idea is a really good one but I thought I should give figuring out my own a go.
In the meantime, I've been seeing the beauty in the everyday. The way the dogs are back lit when they stand in the doorway to the hall and "grrr" to get my attention, or the way the light falls across the floor. This is one of those things I saw when I was focusing on something else.
This is one of two items I bought at the primitive art show that happens around my birthday every year. I love them hanging on doors and have moved them a couple times. I like the idea of art tucked here and there.
