memories and encouragement


I process a lot in B&W. But for this challenge I went back to my all time favourite. The one I will forever cherish. It was just 6 months after Jonah made his way to us. He was the most special little furry puppy I knew to that date. I have chosen this picture for a different reason, though. This picture was the first time I recognized a reflection somewhere. That's why it is so special, because life unfolded right through my viewfinder. And I had the pleasure to be fully aware of it. Holding it tight.

I really loved that the photographer on my featured picture reached out to touch others not only with her ability to create visual beauty. She also left her words for others to see. To remind them to live a kind life.
To be their own cheerleader in whatever the people who view this do. To gather strength.

Those two pictures fit perfectly for me, because they send me the very important reminder to pay attention to those small moments in life and to cheer yourself on. Nothing is too hard to do. If you want it, you can do it.

I was so enchanted seeing once again a lot of wonderful B&W beauties in the flickr pool. If you haven't already come check it out.
Thank you people for making this journey so very much fun.
Keep shooting!

See you in 9 days :)
