A new direction? 01/15/2011

I took this a while ago, and had forgotten about it :P This was at a little local nursery that Zach and I went to this past summer :) It is such a cute place :)
I have been doing some "soul searching" lately. For some reason lately I have felt that I really needed to connect to who I am and what makes me "me".
Part of this started for my search of creativity. A while ago I asked myself how does my art express what I want it to express? I unfortunately wasn't able to come up with an answer for this.
Before I was "happy" with my creations. But now I am just playing and having fun; making photos that will hopefully make people laugh and bring a smile to their face . I feel that I am finally expressing my different thoughts :)
As Zach said the other day "why does it feel like everything is coming to life?"
It's because I feel that my creativity has come to life, and is taking on a new direction.
Before all of this I would have long long periods of artist block. Now I can barely keep up with the ideas for future photo shoots :)

We'll see where this goes! I am hopeful though :)

A new word of the week is up. This week is "Balance"  You can find it here at:  Word of the Week
 
 
Sorry for disappearing on all of you for so long. I became super duper sick the day after Christmas, and felt horrible for a week. I'm still a tad sick, but doing so much better :D

Goodness! I have so much to tell you that I am not sure where to start :P I guess I will start with our new addition to the family :) His name is Ulysses. He was my sister's kitty, but she was unable to keep him. So Zach and I said that we would take him in. He's such a sweetie, and is doing very well adjusting to his new home :D

I didn't take any photos with my new camera when I was sick, but I have all sorts of ideas of things to shoot right now :) especially since I picked up this book on amazon Inspired Photography. It is a wonderful book so far, and I highly recommend it to any type of artist having some creative blocks.

I have started my "52 Words" project for this year and the first word is up :) You can find it here 52 Words. I want this project to be fun, silly, and just plain old enjoyable for those of you who follow this project. Last year I learned how to become disciplined enough to take at least one photograph every week. I am now building upon that :)

It seemed like so much more to tell you when I first started this post, but that was it! hee hee hee. Well off I go to play with my camera more :)
