I did not intend for this to become a series, but after I wrote the previous post, I was challenged in the Sunday message at my church to embrace limitations…To look at the actual limits that I may encounter where I am and use that to spark creativity.
One of the people I learned about was Valerie Jardin, who put away all of her fancy photography equipment for a 35mm camera. Inspired by this, I decided to take a week and shoot pictures only in black and white (more on this to come in the next post…stay tuned!). Although I don’t take many black and white photos, to me, they seem to quiet all the noise so that the viewer can really focus on what is captured within the picture.
I was also challenged in this message to find beauty where I am right now…in the “ordinary.” And isn’t that what I want this whole blog to be about anyway?
Even with my Etsy shop, I fall prey to wanting more and bigger things…but what if I just used what I had to create? That’s how I got started in the first place…
