Every year on new year’s day I try to do something related to the intentions I’ve set for myself in the coming year. This year, I simply set out on a walk and made an effort to try to see things in my neighborhood differently. What I discovered were textures I’d never seen before, colors hidden on old boards and rusted metals, trees made more interesting my simply shifting my angle of looking at them.
I want 2012 to be a year of expansion. I want to keep growing my photography skills, building followers on my food blog, and broadening my creative endeavors. But I also want balance.
I think today was an excellent beginning. By doing nothing more than seeing with fresh eyes, looking at things differently, I turned the familiar into something brilliant. Here’s to a wonderful and inspiring 2012.
