I don´t know about you, but I am sure ready for some color and happy things happening now after the long month of January. Why is it that I always think that January is the longest month of the year?! I thought I would give you some inspiration on how to take some photos of things or people for that matter, that makes you happy.
I have sets at Flickr that are called Happy things (insert year here). In those sets I include many random photos that makes me happy for some reason. It can be because that person makes me happy or in the example above, I was so amazed and happy about our giant rhubarbs!
I often turn to photography when I am feeling down. Setting out on a mission to find things that makes me feel better. I find comfort in going outside and I open my eyes to the magic that is nature. Some times I find things that is obvious like the sky or a view.
I used some of my wandering photos on this layout.
But sometimes my eye catches something small or something that needs me to crouch down in the wet grass to be able to capture it. And let me tell you, getting a little wet to get that photo is so worth it!
Other times I go on a hunt for happy things around the house. It can be a peek trough a window, a shelf, the sun shining into the livingroom or simply a clean table.
Jennifer made a page about her beloved iPhone :)
See, small things can make us happy!
Francine send me this layout and I love the photos!
The lovely smiles in Erins layout makes me happy!
I hope that this post sparks you to look around you and capture what makes you happy right now!
