Dancing in Antigua – Cause I Could!

Since going through my 30 Days of Photos, I wanted to say a thank you to all who were part of it too!! (or not :))

I took a little break this past week as even though it was a good self challenge, I did spend a lot of time on the computer – needed a little more nature plus have been diving into some cool new expressions of how I would like to do more shooting and editing – so new stuff coming up!!

I learned, grew and expanded during this 30 days process and now I would like to take that further, after all we are talking art here – and life 🙂

I have posted all the 30 photos in this post – on Thursday I will be picking 2 winners – to receive a print of their choice (from here or my site – 11 x 14).

In order to qualify –  leave a comment on the post in  my FB page – share  which image you like, like the page and share.

Easy and greatly appreciated!!

I so look forward sharing more creativity!!

Had to do one more! 🙂

This one is called Magic

Behind each new door, adventure, learning, growing, openness in one self is where there can be magic.

Magic of the unknown, being open, learning new things and ways of doing things, expanding what you do know and trying new things.

There is very little to any magic in the same old routines and ways of thinking and being………

Magic is fun!

So, my take aways from doing the 30 days is…..

I did it 🙂

I learned new skills, yet in PS still have a ways to go, yet it did most my confidence.

Art cannot be forced, there were days when I just didn’t feel creative, and I pushed anyways and well, the end result showed it – art is a creative process.

Not everyone understands my metaphors, likes them or my art – so it got me to thinking who I am really creating for and why.

Then I got, my vibe will attract the right tribe – that is for anything and everyone.

I also got a bit clearer on what I really enjoy working on and what I don’t, I still don’t have a niche and actually I am totally fine with it – love having some diversity  even in what I shoot and create.

I can do it! – I have put this off for over 15 years, as I focused too much on making money (and not always in ways I enjoyed – but thought it could get m ‘there’ faster), was intimidated by PS (still am yet way less :)), it’s ok to spend time creating and playing – I was programmed to work hard in my life, wouldn’t get paid for taking photos……..

and I did it.  It always feels good when we set an intention and follow thru, when it aligns and feels good – then is much easier, I enjoyed almost every moment (except when I forgot to save and lost the image – happened only twice!).

Hope you enjoyed seeing the images as much as I did creating them!!

Thank you and coming soon is a FREE giveaway.

This one is called Take the Step

Sometimes in life, we feel lost, confused or can’t see the next step,

that is when we need to trust and really listen to our own guidance,

from within.

It may not make sense at the time,

as it’s usually beyond the mind

and ends up even better than we could imagine.

It’s called The Magical Mystery Tour

No I wasn’t on anything while creating this one 🙂

it was created for fun and to see if I could – all about learning new skills

but

What IF……

you could take a magical mystery tour,

where would you go?

That is what is so cool about imagination!!

This one is called Let Go

When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?

Or just let your mind wonder off into dreams, other possibilities, been playful or had that childlike sense of wonder……….

What if………???

This one is called The Box

The box represents mediocrity, conformity and security,

all illusions.

The truth is,

You were never born to be in a box,

break free and listen to your heart,

it’s knows the truth of you!

This one I did keep kind of easy as I am working on a few other fun ones!

Yet I did learn a couple of new things!

Wouldn’t it be fun to explore new places, from different perspectives?

With a little more fun?

This one I call Searching

Whatever you are searching for,

including the magic,

is already inside of you.

Just learn to lean into it,

hear it,

trust it

and it’s not from your head!

After surrendering yesterday, I woke up today more energized and wanted to work on a new image

here it is, it is called The Dance

Letting go of what we think we know

After surrendering yesterday, I came up with a different image than what I had started on.

I call it Thto dance in the unknown,

is where the magical and mystical lies.

Will you dance there?

You might be looking at this photo and wondering what is so special.

I mean it’s cool and all, 2 young kids in Antigua learning the ropes of the selling their parents do at the top of the hike on the mountain.

But that’s not why I included it.

The real reason is I was working on an image, something different, cool, mystical and only had 1 more thing to do after several hours of working on it.

Oops, I closed the wrong window and I hadn’t been saving as I went.

Note to self – save my work way more often. 🙂

I didn’t have the gas to restart it today – tomorrow maybe.

I won’t miss a day though and I do have to do some clean up on this one!

I call this one Be Open

We all go through dark times or unpleasant times, when we least expect it,

the light shines and a solution or a new perspective can appear,

especially when we least expect it!
