100 Days Project

Robyn: Things that bring me happiness

I have never though of myself as a creative person but I have been inspired by my sister who is doing this for the 2nd year, so thank you sis.

My project is about taking a photo everyday of something that makes me smile and brings me happiness. I won't plan in advance what it will be, I will simply photograph whatever it is I notice on the day that makes me feel good. I want to do this to get into the habit of appreciating all the good things in life on a daily basis.

This project is also about learning how to use my camera and all the settings. I don't know much about photography but I really love it ever since I was given a camera last year. I work well with deadlines rather than left to my own devices, so it will be a good way to get the motivation to push myself to learn about photography and use something other than the programmed setting. I want to try taking different types of photos and to learn about what makes a photo look good.

Day 4:

Sparkles are a girls best friend

Today's photo is of a chandelier in our lounge, and this is why I love it so...

It has been constant fascination for our daughter Lili from the day we moved in. When we moved here she went through a phase where she started screaming blue murder every time I went to change her nappy. Not pleasant for anyone! The chandelier was my saviour as I quickly learned to use it to keep her distracted while I changed her. Now all I need to do is say "look at the light" and she lies back happily fascinated by the light. Now I can do that no matter where we are and thanks goodness that phase has passed too!

So thank you beautiful chandlier for giving Lili so much joy and me so much peace!
