The style of photography seen in the book “A year of Mornings” – which captures everyday Scenes in unusual light or angles or …- inspired me for this picture.
On a more funny note: 1 hour after taking this photo I invented a new kind of workout: “dough-wrestling” – if it is as efficient as enerving I will soon be earning tons of money on the Fitness market right after getting a patent ^^
Cake’s in the oven now, smelling really yummy. Just so you guys know. I would share it with all of you and by this I am saying thanks a whole lot for reading and your wonderful comments! It’s special to me, it really is! have a good Weekend, everyone!
Inspired again and again by the wonderful photo-art-collaboration “3191 miles apart” (see older post), sometimes during a quiet moment (making sure to have some each day!) I see the Beauty of simple things right where I live and make sure to get the camera out.
Ever since I started taking photos of those “simple”, every day life treasures, it seems my thankfulness of how and where I live has come to a new level, accompanies me through the day and just..makes me happy.
The pebbles in the photo above all but one came home with me from Eftalou, Greece. The one on the left which looks a bit like an arch was a gift from Max Bailly, an Artist and my art teacher for one week. He collected pebbles for everyone in the group for our last day for our final meditation round.
Here are a few more photo still-lifes of the past few days:
The cherry tree in front of the Loggia window. Meanwhile blooming fully and shining a bright light in the morning, when I have my first cup of coffee at about 6:15
And my cosy dutch favourite cup – with greek mint-verbena tea, I can almost smell it through the photo …
There is a beautiful Poem by Mary Oliver which matches the mood of this post.
Who love “photo-still-lifes” …
Who love simple things and are able to see the beauty in it.
A couple of years ago two women had -each – a flickr account of their own. Due to similar interests they came
across each other’s account and noticed how similar their style of photography is.
Online they developed a contact, then a friendship, then met.
And the “fruit” of them Meeting has become their first book “A year of Mornings”:
about 250 photos!
The two live in (!) Portland, Maine and Portland Oregon.
Every weekday morning, they took, without communicating with the other (and this is a very important and fascinating fact to know), a picture of their morning setting. May it be a Cup of coffee, a pair of shoes, a view out of the window.
The fascinating thing is how those photos match! Sometimes there are very similar colour or Motive schemes, sometimes somehow the theme is the same.
They made further Projects such as “A year of evenings”, unfortunately this book seems unavailable,
here comes the treat, dear Reader
online free accessible:
A year of Sundays.
You might want to take some time, like 20 minutes, and a cup of coffee or tea.
