New Beginnings

When I think of new beginnings,
I think of a fresh start.

 
When I think of fresh,
I think of fresh air.

 
When I think of fresh air,
I think of walking in the woods.

 
When I think of walking in the woods,
I think of capturing nature with my camera.

 
When I think of capturing nature with my camera,
I think of details, shapes, and colors.

 
When I think of details, shapes and colors,
I think of what fresh new things my eyes will see.
 
When I think of fresh, new things my eyes will see
I think of how grateful I am for this new year we're beginning.
 
New Beginnings...the idea for this post came from a wonderful daily blog Focusing On Life.  No only do they have inspiring daily posts, they have a Flickr group with monthly themes (this month's theme is New Beginnings) and they have just started at Focus On A Photo A Day which is a 365 project.  It's a great place to go for encouragement and beautiful photography.

  6. Oh Cathy, I love this post....reminds me a little bit of the book, "When you give a mouse a cookie" :)

    Perfect words to go with your beautiful photos, and so happy that you find encouragement through Focusing on Life. Thank you for all your support, xo

  10. Oh, Kathy, what wonderful photos and I love the way you tied them together with one sentence leading into another. So clever! Your mention of FOL is so appreciated and we love having you as a regular follower. I thought of you as I signed up for a 50mm photo workshop yesterday and remembered when you won our giveaway and bought one of those for yourself. My, you have done some amazing things with it!

  15. And, as your post so artfully illustrates, one thing usually does lead to something else. Start at the beginning and then, one step at a time, make your way to the end.

  16. I liked how you "mind-mapped" this post - going from one word association to the next - showing us all those things that make your photography what it is. You always capture nature in such a unique way.
