Expression of Art

Follow Through

I really did delete my writing projects! A very strange thing to be excited about, I know, but this past week has been the lightest I’ve felt in a long time. I don’t go to sleep feeling like a loser-slacker because, for yet another day, I haven’t hit the finished mark. Clearing the path, to allow new worlds clearance into the foreground, is an exciting thought, not to mention the point that I actually followed through and did what I said I was going to do!

(Not sure what I’m talking about? Check here).

A Different Approach

Despite what I anticipated, I didn’t dive right into one of these new worlds, even after I signed up for the 12 Month Author Challenge that started October 1st. I took a different approach to expressing my creativity by picking up something entirely new…

ZBEAUTY-LG…I played with my camera. Well, it’s really my boyfriend’s camera, but since he’s put away his photography annoyance (as he describes it) I figure it’s up for adoption, and I’m willing to be it’s foster mother to test things out. All week, it was in my head to play around with taking some pictures; see what other kinds of creative juices might flow. Instead, I threw all my focus into studying to re-test for my Personal Trainer Certification. Over-studying better describes it, but I don’t just want to pass the test, I want to ace it.



SONY DSCSONY DSCI’m living in a house of cats right now, so these three energetic nappers were my subjects. I experimented between two lenses, wanting to get close shots, because -well, I just did. I missed a bunch of shots forcing this issue. Being close with a zoom-lens is not conducive to grabbing shots. What do I know? Hello learning curve  😉


Express Ourselves

I never understood photography as an expression of art. I think that’s a lot of the reason I’m interested in trying it out. Is it really an art? Does it really express anything unique to the photographer? Capturing reality, then manipulating it to fit a story… is that it? Or have I looked too far into it?

Expression of art comes in all forms. I’m hoping this break from writing gives me renewed energy when I finally sit down to start a new world. Or maybe I’ll find another outlet for the madness that lives in my head.

Until then…
