Circles



There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
Nelson Mandela

I've been thinking lately....assessing really......as I noticed that I was picking up my (big) camera less and less.  And finally I came to the realisation that I have been ignoring the whole purpose and reason for my love of photography.  All the extraordinary ordinary.  The moments of my everyday.  I have captured the light on my bed a thousand times.  And yet this image is different to the 999 times that have gone before.  That's what I love about photography and the whole photography process.  Once again I have come full circle back to that realisation of purpose.

And so I return to my best loved places, literally and figuratively.  I seem to circle this issue a lot.  But I always come back to the same place.  Here I am again.


Linking up (belatedly) with Texture Tuesday.  Image processed using Kim Klassen texture yesteryear.

  1. In some ways, it's like the circle and the cycle of life...we can wander away from something that "is" who we are, we attempt new things, try new experiences, but in the end, we come back to where we began and feel so at home in doing so. Love this capture Becs...so inviting!

  2. "The extraordinary ordinary". How easy to lose sight of that. Perhaps that is life itself - the circling around.

  6. Love the combination of light and shadow here as well as a probable hint to more of your interests with the stack of books next to the bed.
