A good friend of mine, who I have never met, is this weeks moderator for the lens-artist challenge. Tina Scnell brings some colour into our lives with her amazing photography (actually she brings some color but I have translated it to global…). She inspires us by:
To some, each day brings a struggle to see beyond the darkness. For the rest of us, it is important to find moments of joy. We are surrounded by all of the colors of the rainbow, but it’s up to us to recognize and appreciate them. Remember, gratitude is recognized as one of the most important elements of a balanced, contented life. So go ahead – find some colorful captures to make us smile.
In the presence of such wisdom and given the natural radiance and vibrancy of the subject I photographed, I for a change apart from acknowledging my gratitude will say very little. My words will detract from the visuals underneath. This weekend was my daughter’s Matric (final year at school) farewell dance. Two month’s ago my simple and stress free (I wish) life, became labyrinthine as my daughter appointed me as her photographer to this special event. It appears as if things have worked out though – how can I not echo my daughters gratitude? See translation underneath.
The photos are sooo beautiful dad, thank-you thank-you thank-you!
Pleasure my darling, you make the photos beautiful
My gratitude is in the first place for Irisna – her beauty is not superficial. Please read this short post by her and you will realize why: A lot of people struggle with their identity. My daughters will always be more vibrant than photos taken of them.
And by the way last week my post did not appear in the Reader so if you want to view the 18 year old as a 2 year old: The most beautiful flower in my garden
