please join me at shutter sisters today where i talk about healing through my lens.

do you give yourself permission to shoot what's real, even when it is not always pretty?

bless you for this.
this touched me today, right where i needed it.

my body has served me well, and i need to be tender to myself, much more loving of myself.

thank you, and i hope you recover fully from your surgery.

I read your post earlier today and it really touched me deeply - thank you for writing it and for the beautiful picture. It is authentic, true, real, and courageous. I wish you a speedy recovery.
As for allowing myself to shoot what's real, I am trying. I have gotten reacquainted with my passion for photography and don't go anywhere without my camera in my bag. What's real for me are my kids, my life, to not take anything for granted and to live in the moment. take care x

Loved and relished every word of your post on SS today . . . and I'm glad that you are on the healing road. All too often, photos I look at seem like they are somebody's life that I never can have: too perfect, too pretty, too tidy. But you know what? I kind of love the life I have . . . mess and all. Go rest up! And I'll find you some fabulous heels you can wear even with that bunion.

Nope, I don't! Too scared. It isn't pretty so I don't think I want to see it.
Maybe if I took better care of it? Maybe.
