Photo Heart Connection January

Journaling, Photoshop and Lightroom

“Life is an experiment in which you may fail or succeed. Explore more, expect least.”
― Santosh Kalwar

I had decided not to have a word this year but it sort of crept up on me and there it was. Out of all my January photographs this is the one that cried out to me.

Taken on my iPhone early afternoon the sun was already beginning to go down . It wasn’t until I got back home and downloaded my photos that I saw the light through the trees.

To me it cried out as a new beginning in my 59th year, I want to explore myself, my environment,my life . The light shafting through the trees was the split, the crack inviting me to walk through and to see what was on the other side.


I’m linking with Kat Sloma for her monthly Photo Heart Connection.

What image spoke to you this month ?





Books, pages that smell fresh and new, old and dusty. Lines of type that miraculously turn into conversations, descriptions, words of love and fear. Where shall I go today ? To France with Joanne ? On a train with Agatha ? On a moor with Emily ? Or flying through the air with Mary ?

Invisible to others I sit mesmerised by the words that lift off the page and make pictures in my mind, only to vanish with the slap of the the cover shutting.
