“Hearts understand in ways minds cannot.”
― Louis Wilson

I recently wandered into Waterstones and found a beautiful book by Drew Barrymore. It’s basically a book full of photographs in which she has posted images of hearts found in absolutely everything. It sounds corny, but it’s actually quite clever. You can see the book here. I haven’t bought it yet but it’s on my wishlist. The other day we were looking for new mirrors for the house – we really needed something in the downstairs bathroom as it’s such a big empty space and also a mirror above our fireplace. We spent ages looking at mirrors, most of them were unwrapped and had dents or scratches in them. We found the one below for the bathroom but it had a small varnish stain in the lower corner…. but since it was heart shaped I decided I’d start my own mini project of Finding it in everything and we bought it anyway! Don’t worry, I’m not going to insist a heart is every photo I take this year…maybe a heart OR an owl…

I love Photography because if you’re desperate enough for a shot – like I am sometimes when doing the photo a day challenge – you’ll see something you’ve shot before in a completely different light. It’s mind-blowing when that happens. Especially if you’re busy and haven’t the time to be inspired.

Inspiration can hit when the sun breaks through the clouds and shines on an object – today that was a piece of jewellery I’d found whilst sorting out. So I dug around for some matching bits, grabbed the very fine fishing wire and ten minutes later I had my shots.

I like it when that happens. Shooting nature is great, but sometimes I feel like I’m taking the easy route by snapping something that is laid out in front of me, waiting to be snapped. So taking a bit more time and effort feels good!

I also like the way my camera adds a shiny ping to the images when the sun bounces off of them – sort of like the cheesy smile flash! It’s quite good like that, in the right lights. Lens flare – amateur but looks pretty!
