I thought I would pop over to Paris this morning. Unfortunately I can’t take an hour flight to pop over there anymore, but it’s nice that I can do it anytime in my photos! We’re “Exploring Icons” this week in A Sense of Place, so I thought I would share this image of the Eiffel Tower, one of the world’s most famous icons. Do you see it in shadow?
I have to share how much I am loving this class! It’s so much fun to get to know the participants and explore the Photography of Place – one of my favorite subjects. I love learning about myself and my photography through the creation and teaching of the course.
Sometimes I wonder why I do the things I do… Why I am compelled to add things like this course on to my already busy schedule of my corporate job, my family, my friends, my travels, my photography. But this reminds me – it’s because I love it. I absolutely love it. This is who I am, how I need to express and process and share my world. It’s an integral part of me now, and I don’t think I could shut it off if I tried.
So even though my ideas sometimes add a layer of craziness to my life, and I wonder if I’m just making my life more complicated than it needs to be, I remember my love for what I do here. I am lucky to have found this part of myself, and to have a venue to share it with all of you.
