Photography is an excellent workout for mind, body and soul.
Here’s why –
Photography exercises my eyes, by encouraging me to look for beautiful objects, scenes and compositions that I otherwise might just walk straight past.
Photography exercises my legs, as the places I go to photograph I travel to by bicycle, on foot or most often a combination of both.
Photography exercises my mind, by imploring me to focus on what I’m photographing, meaning almost everything else in my busy head falls away, or at least is muted for a while.
Photography exercises my soul, by allowing me to immerse myself in nature and remind myself of all the beauty in the world.
