With all the doom and gloom in this testing world, I have been taking more photos more than ever before. People ask me what I enjoy taking images of? My answer has always been the same "I'm not really sure". This isn't because I actually haven't got the ideas but more because I don't want to feel limited to one idea. As well as taking wedding photos I teach Photography and the most common question I get is about 'inspiration'. "Miss I can't think of anything that inspires me...."I tell students to "open their eyes and their minds to everything and anything". For me the series of 'nature' images came from my daughter, who will often run up to me holding something precious like a flower, a snail shell or even one of our many pets. On this occasion I saw how she held the objects so tightly but careful and how beautifully presented they appeared. So I started to snap away, it became almost a game for my daughter, her cheeky grin and her muddy hands so ready to present her objects of choice to me and the lens.
