Being aware of the “frantic rush” {Personal Photography}

March 21, 2016

When asked how you’re doing, isn’t “busy” one of the first things that comes to mind?  We’re all SO.BUSY.  It seems like the pace of life keeps escalating and it’s more and more difficult to really immerse yourself in the here and now.  So when I woke up this morning and saw the snow outside, I grabbed my camera and spent a little time with mother nature.  I know most of us are sick of the snow and ready for warmer weather, but I felt compelled to get some shots of what will probably be the last snowfall of this year.  A little later in the day, I listened to a podcast from Ben Hartley’s “Six Figure Photography”.  His topic was all about the concept of “busy”, and how we should not always look at busy as a good thing.  Most of us hate red lights and drive thru lines and waiting rooms.  We hate these things because they make us WAIT!  We’re all too “busy” to have to deal with any of it.  But maybe we should reconsider just how busy we are.  When we’re at the red light, where do we REALLY have to be?  We all want to get where we’re going, but maybe we need to enjoy the ride a bit more than we do.  It’s good to be busy…we all want to feel accomplished.  But if we try to be more aware of the “frantic rush” that we sometimes unnecessarily create for ourselves, maybe we can truly soak in all that life has to offer…even if it’s winter on the second day of spring!

    Beautiful photos! I prefer to say my life is ‘full’ rather than busy. I think it gives a much lovelier connotation to life.
