One of my greatest joys, is my photography. It is something that I love to do. It is an extremely personal part of me that I thought I’d share with you.
Even if you are facing difficult financial times, find something you love to do as well. Read my previous post “Don’t Let Your Debt Consume Your Life. Take Advantage of Free Beauty Around You” for more information about this philosophy.
This photo really needs to be viewed large to appreciate it. It is ironic how much detail can be found in nothing. Here I was, sitting outside on a bright morning in Old San Juan Puerto Rico and I looked up at the canvas umbrella covering the table. I spotted what looked like a cigarette burn hole that must have been made when the umbrella was folded down.
The strong pattern of the canvas, punctuated by the blue sky above, made it feel so full of action and life but minimalist at the same time. I tried all sorts of crops on this photo but in the end, the bulls eye crop was my favorite. After all, you’re going to be drawn to the blue sky anyway, might as well put it near the center so that it is surrounded with all that textured canvas.
