I thoroughly enjoyed an online photography course mid year. I learnt a lot about my camera and about different techniques. I participated in interesting weekly assignments, encouraged fellow students, saw some lovely photographs and ideas. I still need to practice and there’s always more to learn.
Experimenting with camera shutter speed was fun.
I’ve also enjoyed using my new “olloclip” macro lens that takes amazing images with my iphone. Seeing a new level of detail in everyday objects is intriguing.
As well as our driftwood tree that evolved over the months, I have worked on several crochet and knitting projects, also created a terrarium.
I completed the challenge to submit a picture for one hundred consecutive days, of what made me happy. Check out the website 100happydays.com and my post here.
“We live in times when super-busy schedules have become something to boast about. While the speed of life increases, there is less and less time to enjoy the moment that you are in. The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, is the base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being.”
