Glorious light at Knightshayes in Devon this week. It was so cold and windy but the light as the sun slipped lower and lower pierced through the trees and it was magical.
One thing I am learning that photography from the heart is the only way I can be true to myself.  The most perfect image in the world if it has not been taken with heart can be meaningless. Watching Brene Brown and Ali Edwards this week on Oprah talking about gratitude and how important the everyday is made me realise that it is so important to document,  to show, that we need to be grateful for the little things, the day to day because that is what makes us who we are.
Linking with collage obsession today

My Friday find is rediscovering the present I had last Christmas from Mark a Poloroid Pogo it is a wonderful little gadget. 
It’s great for journaling . 
The backing is sticky so I can stick them in my journal,  
I’m going to start a gratitude journal, wish me luck my track record is not good.
I’m joining up with Kim at Friday Finds and Patricia at Finding Serendipity

Have a great weekend any plans ?

  4. Oh my…sigh…that light is heavenly and I see your heart in it. I have been writing thoughts on this very same subject, shooting from the heart. How many times have we seen the perfect thirds, composition, blah, blah, blah, only to not be moved by a photo. They forgot the most important ingredient. Okay, can't say any more, haha! Now, that polaroid pogo looks very interesting….and sticky on the back, hmmm! 🙂

  5. One thing I am learning that photography from the heart is the only way I can be true to myself. Yes, Yes, Yes… I think you know whether it is true to a photographer's heart or not. I think if not the picture might be great but it will still lack something. Thanks for the visit to my little blog… 🙂 Nice to meet you.

  9. That first photo is so lovely! I recently read a book by Louise Penny, “How the Light Gets In,” based on that quote. Great book, by the way!. And I had never seen a Polaroid Pogo. What a great little gadget!

  11. Love you first image with the quote from Leonard Cohen…I was lucky to see Leonard perform last week in concert so the words are that much deeper for me. Really like the photos you took and printed on your Pogo.
