Today continues a series of guest posts from Photo-Heart Connection participants. I invited them to write a post sharing what the Photo-Heart Connection meant to them this year. For the next few days I will share these very special answers with all of you, celebrating the first year of the Photo-Heart Connection. Enjoy!
I take photographs with my heart. I always try to capture anything that moves me and speaks to my soul. I also try to express my feelings in words, a huge reason why I started blogging more than a year ago.
Hearing of Kat’s Photo-Heart Connection deeply intrigued me because the concept was so similar to what I had been trying to do with my blog ever since I started it. I remember reading more about it and feeling absolutely determined to participate in the next one. I’ve been a regular ever since I started a few months back. It has been an intensely satisfying experience for me and I cannot wait to start afresh in the New Year!
I look at my photographs with new eyes now and I also look within searching for stories and emotions behind my images. While writing my post, I sift through words searching for the ones that match what I am trying to say. I edit to my heart’s content, tapping away at my laptop oblivious to everything around me. I cherish interacting with my fellow Photo-Heart Connection bloggers. I always come away feeling inspired and encouraged. At the end of it, I cannot wait for the new month to start all over again.
Every month is an opportunity to do some much needed soul searching. Uncannily, emotions that I’ve been trying to disguise come straight to the forefront and I have no option but to address them. It always leaves me feeling better. I feel that the quality of my posts has vastly improved in the past few months thanks to this practice.
I sincerely feel that continuing to participate here means an endless road of self-discovery. Thank you Kat, for this wonderful opportunity every month. I love being here. 🙂
