October edition of interesting and motivational quotes

“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also.

September edition of motivational and interesting quotes

“When you get to the end of the road and feel like you've arrived at a place where you don't want to be, for pity sakes, turn around, back up and move in a different direction. There's no road in life that is a dead end unless you stop there permanently.”― Toni Sorenson“Life does not favor the fearful nor does it reward the reluctant; it embraces and elevates those willing to climb in spite of their fear and willing to try in the mocking face of failure. It gives bonus points to those... continue reading

Children and Photography

Showed him how to use my camera a bit and how post processing works and... continue reading

A touch of Inspiration...

Just like many of you, after a hard hit of rejections I get a bit discouraged. And I always feel comfort in reading other inspiring blogs. So if I may share a touch of inspiration that helps me get back on the horse.I have to remember, that taking photographs can be richly rewarding (not just monetary). Whether it captures my memorable moment or experiments with abstract concepts, a photograph allows me to express my personal vision of the world. And no matter the subject, technique, or composition,... continue reading
