Through the eyes of the child within.
Murphy and I grabbed the camera, last night and went for a drive. The light was wonderful and it had finally cooled off a tad.
I read all about Miksang on line. I joined the Flicker group. I'll take the workshops when they are in my area because I am curious.
That said, I honestly think that I have been practicing my own version of Miksang. Last year I posted a number of blog posts about viewing the world through the eyes of a child. I know that I've been trying to do that in my daily life, my creative life and certainly behind the lens.
One of the RULES of the Miksang group is that pictures can't be altered in any way. I was rather pleased, lately, when I look at my photos and I'm happy with what I see. I don't feel the need to crop. Other times the picture is off balance or there are distracting things, at the edges that I don't want in my photo. I'm not quite ready to give up that kind of artistic control.
Anywho, I had some fun last night with Murphy and the above link will take you to a few of the photographs I took. I didn't wander to far from my house just down a few favorite back roads.
:)Bea Enjoy and then go CREATE!
