Hello, friends! I look forward to the Between Lenses project each month, and Tara and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of you who have joined us in this creative bloghop! It’s more than just a photography project, but one that really allows you to be creative, to use your heart in capturing a theme that represents you. This month’s theme is Movement and I can’t tell you how much fun Tara and I had capturing this one!
Movement. Such a powerful word, one that I’ve been excited to shoot since Tara and I chose it. To me, movement can mean so much — the coming and going of people in a bustling city street, the way a dancer graciously moves across the room, or even an artistic movement. There were just so many ideas flowing through my head, but it wasn’t until a recent trip to the coast, that not only did the little light bulb inside my head come on, but the sheer feeling of excitement & wonder to truly see movement in action.
High above the mountains along the California coast, I stood there in complete awe, as a blanket of white fog drifted in front of me. It draped the mountain in a mysterious white veil, I couldn’t help but be enamored by it. Once in the distance, you could see the ocean, but instead there was only sheer white. I stood there, for what seemed like ages, and watched it make it’s move from the ocean than finally into the trees.
I’m not sure what it is about fog, but I have always been so captivated by it. It represents peace to me, but more than anything, it’s nature moving in it’s finest.
Oh my. I absolutely love Tara’s photo, I just can’t stop staring at it! You know that feeling of pure joy, almost like being a kid again? That’s the feeling I get when looking at her photo. I just love it. And it depicts movement so perfectly and her description even more beautifully! You have to hop on over to Tara Victoria to read the feeling behind this moment for her.
It’s easy to see that Tara and I had a lot of fun capturing Movement. We’d love for you to join us! You can easily link up with us via the following steps:
1. Create your blog post and feel free to use the header image in which you can download here.
2. Copy your blog post’s url.
3. Notice where it says Click here to enter — click that and follow the easy instructions. Be sure to only link up with one of our blogs, not both. No worries — since mine and Tara’s blogs are interlinked, your blog post will show up on both!
4. And for fun, you can share your photo on Instagram & Twitter using the #BetweenLenses hashtag.
Our goal for this collaboration is to capture & reflect upon life, to cultivate inspiration among one another and to connect with other bloggers. And we hope that you’re one of them!
