setback only temporary

Standard

vintage camera

Well, if you have been following my blog, you probably noticed that, after I posted that my camera wasn’t working, I posted some rather blurry snapshots of a cute little snail I found. Well, literally the day after my post about my camera not working, it arose from its hibernation and began making me look silly for writing the post in the first place. I don’t know what the dealio with my camera was, but I am glad to have it back. I must confess, however, I haven’t really been taking any photos. : (

Years ago I skimmed a book called Write It Down, Make It Happen. The author of this book theorized that when one writes down a goal, from the very achievable to the seemingly outlandish, that the act of writing down the goal sets the goal into motion; that writing a goal down clarifies it and make it more real, and that from there, the goal setter will more actively work on the goal. To me, this makes perfect sense.

So, my goal is to take more photographs. I want to take photographs outside of pretty things, dilapidated things and anything that strikes my fancy, really. I want to set aside more time to just look for things to photograph, and shoot everywhere I go without hesitation. (<——This is me clarifying my goal)

Now, hopefully, with my goal written and clarified a bit more, this (according to the books theory) should help me get off my lazy butt and go outside for a change, camera in hand. Wish me luck guys!
