Friday Finds


This week I find myself empty of photography inspiration. Nothing that's really a big deal. It just seemed that after a very busy posting month, the finish of a 365 project, and completing two classes in August, I was ready to rest. I am keeping up my habit of taking pictures everyday, but there wasn't much worth sharing.

I have started another daily habit...writing. The only writing I do is right here on this blog, but for a while now I've wanted to journal. I've also wanted to record my family stories. One of the classes I took last month was Write Now with Amanda at A.L.M. Writes. The class was exactly what I needed to get me motivated. I now have two journals. One is for family stories. The second one is a personal journal I'm trying to write in every day. I'm taking another class with Amanda this month, Wholly Ordinary that focuses more on journaling and should keep the motivation going until writing daily is a firm habit.

So there you have it. My find this week is less photography...more words. This is very different than my usual Friday Finds. Must be the writing thing!

  1. I love writing and journaling. I also love your image. It is empty and yet full at the same time. It seems like a sacred place full of potential which is the perfect place to begin your writing.

  5. Good for you, Cathy! Writing down your family stories is an important project, and your children and future generations will bless you for doing it. This image is magical -- so simple, yet so full of meaning.

  7. We are all inspired in different ways. I've tried Journaling but it's just not my thing. The blogging and photos is my way of writing/journaling. I wish you much success with your writing but I do miss your wonderful photography.

  10. Good for you. I found I couldn't stop taking the daily photograph and without the pressure of posting my best picture everyday I feel more creative than ever, so weird. We will see how long it lasts, but I told my self on the days I don't feel motivated I will take a picture of the book I am reading or something simple like that. The main thing is no pressure.

  14. Ah, LOVE floor reflections! Such wonderful finds. Sometimes our creativity takes a different path - yours is now on the "word" journey. Good for you to take on the project of recording your family stories - I'm sure that will be precious to your children and grandchildren someday.

  16. I love the potentiality of this empty room, filled with light and shadows and reflections. I suspect you have some wonderful family stories to share; I'm glad to hear you're going to write them down. You can illustrate them with your beautiful photography!

  17. Good luck with journaling--I've tried a couple of different times but haven't stuck with it long enough for it to become a habit. It's great that one of your journals is for recording family stories--you will have the pleasure of recalling events and others will enjoy reading about them. And bonus--it will be in your own handwriting. One of the things I've realized recently is that only have a samples of my parents handwriting.
