Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

A promise to myself, outloud.

Yesterday I decided to ask if I could get in to and take some more online photography courses that my favorite teacher, Carol Leigh, will be offering next year. I know me and I need to have goals. I also need to be accountable to someone or something.

Recently having returned from a great photography workshop learning experience in Jackson, Wy., I’d promised myself I would shoot on a regular basis. I’ve said this before, but his time I really meant it. Guess what. I haven’t picked up and used my big camera once and its been 20 days since that promise. Life just ALWAYS seems to get in the way. And……..the reasons always seem so real.

So when I read Carol Leigh’s blog post this morning I was jolted back into the realty that today is the day (well, tomorrow is the day as I’m driving in to LA:-)). I want to do what I say I’m going to do. I want to honor my wishes as much as I honor others’ wishes. Here is my commitment, one half hour a day, every day, I’m going to shoot with my Canon 40D. I can shoot for longer, but I will shoot for a minimum of one half hour a day with mindfulness.

Here is a link to Carol’s October 22, 2009 blog entry I just read. Hope you make time to read her blog post too.
