When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” - Rumi
when i click that shutter something happens... i experience an inner joy... a surfacing of passion... i forget about everything around me and focusses on the object... i smile... constantly... i observe... with deeper meaning... poems go through my mind... i connect sentences and words with pictures... i notice all the details... the colors... (i sometimes wonder how one can capture the smell?)... i move slower... i notice every thing... i want to capture more with my lens... i want to hold on to this moment for ever... i see the littles things... i look up and see the big, open, blue skies and know that He is alive...
i am alive... in this moment, i am passion... it's moving through me, like a river, capturing this moment.
