For just over seven years, I’ve had a daily (morning) practice of yoga.
Over time it’s evolved to include meditation at the beginning, and simply giving thanks. All the latter involves is verbalising (at least in my head) five things I’m thankful for at the end of the yoga.
Others call this kind of act “daily gratitudes” and I’ve found it helps me greatly in staying humble and thankful for all the amazing things I have in my life, and all I’m able to do.
I’ve realised that photography also plays a fundamental part in this giving of thanks.
35hunter is a log of my adventures, “hunting for beauty and balance, camera in hand“.
The reason I seek beauty – and try to capture it with a camera – is to remind myself (and then others, via sharing it) that despite all the chaos and destruction we hear about in the world, there is still breath-taking beauty if we look for it.
And it’s usually much closer than we think.
So making these photographs becomes a way of acknowledging and giving thanks for the beauty around me too.
