Good Morning and happy Sunday.  I hope you all had a wonderful week and are enjoy your #simplySunday!

Do you have a passion that you don’t nurture enough?  Or something that has always interested you but that you have never really pursued?

This week for #simplySunday I thought I’d share one of mine with you… photography.

I have always loved photographing the world around me but it is a passion I definitely don’t nurture enough.  camera lensThere is something special about capturing a moment that I don’t want to forget, a beautiful texture that catches my attention, or something simple that reminds me how beautiful the world around us it.

Being behind a lens always awakes something special in me.  I love seeing things in different ways and capturing something special to share with others.  It is one of those things that I wish I could make the time to do more often.

I know that if I consciously allowed myself time to do things like this, it would make me happy and bring me joy.  Do you have things like that in your life too?

My challenge

In making a conscious effort to be more present in observing what is around me, I am challenging myself to take a photograph a day between now and the end of February.

Doing this will hopefully remind me to stop and take a few minutes each day to do something that I love.

So with that in mind, I thought I would share a few of my favourite photos that I have taken over the past few years…

The things I photograph are what make me happy.
