Photo *Heart* Fridays – The Big Picture

LandscapefinalK’s landscape creation after 10 weeks of art classes


I have always loved capturing landscapes with my camera. My only limitation is this, I don’t get to travel often or far enough to capture this sort of landscape through my lens.

Looking at this picture that K has completed this week showed me how we view landscapes is parallel to how we view our lives. Many times I find myself so occupied with the here and now, that I lose sight of the big picture of things.

‘Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.’ ~ Charles Linbergh

Despite the challenges of the daily grind, and of certain days that make me feel a lot less hopeful than others. I always need to remind myself to look up and out of the place that I have been, into a place where hope lives. A place where I have learnt to be content to be where I am and be energized again to move forward.
