“The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp.”

John Berry

I’ve been unhappy with my photographs lately. I spend time in Photoshop—sprucing them up—and then decide that the picture in the frame wasn’t really worth the effort.

Yesterday is an example. I spent the morning at the beach with my son. The weather was perfect and the ocean was beautiful, but the images I shot did the landscape no favors (although I’m sure I will keep trying).

I came to the conclusion that the photographs I dislike the most are usually the one’s I’ve taken when I was trying too hard. The results are always better when the picture comes naturally.

I found a book of quotes at the thrift store, and skimmed through it while sitting on the sand. I think the quote above expresses my thought perfectly. So… I wanted to try something different today—a piece of digital art titled Reflect. Ha!

Peace & Love Everyone!
