100 wednesdays – january 8, 2014

January 08, 2014



This day, I was waiting on a friend at my favorite local restaurant and was observing the table set-up. The arrangement caught my eye so I took this photo. The colors, the texture, the water glasses all spoke to me and beckoned me to capture the arrangement. Creative lesson: to use your eyes to view your surroundings and capture a moment in time.


{today’s view from the front porch – 1/6/14}

For about a month, I have been capturing the view from my front porch at various times during the day. On this particular day the weather was really cloudy and everything was really dark except for this incredibly bright cloud that you see in the picture. Creative lesson: to capture an image of the same location over a period of time so that you can see all the variations in nature.

planning the future

{planning the future over a cup of tea}

January is always a month of planning and organizing for me. Sometimes more planning than actually implementing but none the less important for a creative. Creative Lesson: take a moment to plan especially with a cup of tea but also implement the plans so that you have a sense of accomplishment.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
