A New Habit: Writing Wednesday 004

Today was a great challenge and opportunity to write. I didn’t know what to write about, so I used one of my other renaissance pursuits (Photography) to get the juices going. I walked through my neighborhood and took some shots of the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. One shot captivated me when I was reviewing them–the shot showed life and death in one image. A beautiful African Violet blooming, but a dead flower interspersed throughout the blossoms. Got me thinking deeply on life and death. Here’s what I wrote:

A Foray Into Photography

These are some shot’s I’ve taken throughout the year of 2014. Some are Spring time, Summer, or now Autumn. I bought a DSLR camera for myself on my 25th birthday back in January. Making time to learn and improve in this field has been a challenge, but also lots of fun. It’s nice to take the time to learn something completely outside of the usual realm of my main work. I love photography, and hope to continue to improve and study this craft.

Essentially this is a small part of my path towards renaissance this year. Personally I think there’s some good shots, but I’m curious if that’s just self-flattery. Any feedback is welcome and appreciated.

Thank you 🙂
