California Inspiration

How to Use Feelings in Your Pictures

One of the many things I really love about living in Southern California is the many beaches.

When life gets a little too stressful and my mind goes into overdrive I often pick up my camera and go for a walk along the ocean. The sound of the waves, sand between my toes, and the smell of water, is like a magical highly potent recipe for finding quietness.

Overcome space, and all we have left is here. Overcome time, and all we have left is now.

Once my mind calms down, the magic happens. I start seeing beauty everywhere. I love how taking photos with my Lensbaby lenses allows me to translate my inner peace of mind into pictures.

In the end. Only three things matter. How much you loved. How gently you lived. And how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

This post is part of the Lensbaby blog circle that I recently joined. In this blog circle a group of Lensbaby enthusiasts from all around the world comes together. Each months we will share a blog post of Lensbaby images. Each blog in the circle will end with a link to the next member. I hope you enjoyed seeing my pictures. Please continue your journey and head over to Martina’s beautiful blog at Moerkrum I find it extremely inspiring and fascinating to see what other photographers do with their Lensbaby lenses. There can never be enough inspiration in our life as artists.
