25 Days of Thanks: Day 4

I have so much to be thankful for that I hardly know where to start…..Each day so far in this challenge I think to myself, “What do I want to do today…?” It’s not because I struggle with finding something to feature but rather the opposite. I struggle to choose just one.

For Day 4 I wanted to show thanks for my love of photography. I know that may seem petty to some but I don’t feel the same. I struggled on the inside almost my whole life because I felt like I never had a hobby-there wasn’t anything that I was particularly good at. I knew I always loved and cherished pictures and especially once my first born came along. I realized that I may love taking pictures more than the average bear but I still didn’t put much thought into it.

It wasn’t until recently, when I completed my 30 Days of Beauty Challenge that I really realized the love that I have for this! I’m constantly looking around my world thinking, “WOW! That would be a great picture!” It’s almost like looking through a camera lens even when I don’t have the camera with me.

Here are a couple of shots I took today during my lunch break….And while I’m at it-I wanted to link up to Perceptive Perspective. The topic this week is “treats.” While I know these pictures aren’t your typical Halloween treat….They were MY treat today. I took a nice long ride during my lunch break, by myself, and found the perfect spot. What a treat it was to me…..I loved it!

And over the last 6 months (even though I’ve been a major photog for the last 20 years I really have discovered that my passion for photography is the first REAL hobby I have ever had. I literally can spend all day & night thinking about it!!!! When I get busy w/ my blog I sometimes forget to eat lunch & lets just say NOTHING has ever made me forget to eat!! LOL).
