Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. "A child is born". But it is the festivities, the fun, the gathering of familiy and friends. Yes, the holidays are almost upon us and life just gets crazy busy. Schedules conflict, deadlines are missed, shopping is not done. But sometimes to enjoy the moment you just have to go off the grid. Take a moment to breath, meditate, walk. Whatever gets your mojo flowing again in a positive manner.
Not only do I find this helpful, it sparks my creativity. I want capture these personal moments of being "off the grid". Looking through the lens of my camera often times gives me a different perspective. What was my mood? What time of day? Am I in the woods are on a busy street. This photo here was taken after a very busy week of taking my mother to doctor appointments and keeping up with work and life in general. I literally pulled over and looked down this road and thought, sometimes you just need to go off the grid.
Whatever your mechanism is, find it so that you may enjoy the holidays too. Slow down, enjoy the moments and capture it, as it is just a snap shot in time that you will not get back.
Whatever you celebrate, may your holiday be full of love and laughter.
From my home to yours - see you next year. Susane - Owner of Lema Street Photography
