Im Published!


Stampington's Life Images , Winter 2008 issue has published a photo I submitted to them!

This has inspired me to keep snapping away..and to really try to capture and look for more hidden beauty that is around us everyday that we take advantage of.

I love looking for those ordinary things around us that have their own natural beauty.. to see and look for things we would normally pass right over.. to find something special about everything and everyone.

We get so caught up in the gossip and misfortune of others..crime and happenings in the news..we never stop to look for the good..or the beauty in things and people. Im hoping to keep searching for those little things that make me smile..and hopefully have a camera in hand when I do stumble across them!

My New Year's challenge to all of you who read this would be to do the same.. look for the good..look for the happy.. look for the special.. look for the tiny things in our life that bring us smiles :)

Oh hooray Sandy!! I haven't seen this publication yet but I have heard so much about it and I'm so thrilled that you are in it...hopefully it will be on the shelves here in Canada soon...

I love your challenge but I won't have to really take it...every single day since I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May '05 I pray for my blessings and each day I say "I shall look for the joy in the day"...and I do. I'm so glad you posted this as a is something we should all be doing!!!

Congratulations! That is so wonderful, having your work published and being inspired to do more. I will take your advice and try to see the beauty in all the deer footprints in our yard, and never mind about the fact that it means they are eating the evergreen shrubs....
