I found myself alone today in a quiet house. The kids and hubby were out and about, the cat was taking a nap and I was about to enjoy a cup of tea. The solitude of the moment calmed me. I filled the kettle and lit the gas.
I have always loved this quote:
Tea…is a religion of the art of life. ~Okakura
I wanted to capture this thought on film and (finally) add some photos to my blog. A challenge and the time and space to do it in, lovely.
I admire so many blogs for the sole reason of the photography and just the feel of the space that has been created. Orangette and 3191 are my latest favourites. I had no idea where to start? Overwhelmed I surfed around a bit hunting for advice and wasting time admiring the photos I hope to one day take.
I stumbled on this great article by Darren Rouse http://www.digital-photography-school.com/food-photography-an-introduction, and learned a bit and decided now was the time to take the plunge.
And there it is. As you can see I have a lot to learn and miles to go on this journey, but the first step has been taken.
