My love for photography.

Since I was a little girl I was in love with color, beauty, nature and capturing it on paper. I used to doodle on each little scrap of paper I would get my hands on. Sometimes I still do, even at work and that sometimes gets me into trouble. Drawing and painting kind of disappeared as soon as I got married, but the love for photography emerged. Taking pictures of all the lovely nature spots we went to, and later all the photos I took of my children, made my husband trow up his hands as he bought me a digital camera, tired of all the times we had to develop ALL the photos I took on film. :)

So far this is just a hobby I do. I especially love taking pictures of nature, of beautiful flowers you see on my blog. Maybe some day I will be able to turn it into money making business? who knows... it does not hurt to hope. Then I can leave my office work and work from home taking pictures and traveling, my two dreams.

What are your dreams? Are you living your dream? If "Yes", then you are very lucky and blessed. If its a "No", May God help you fulfill your dreams, and live the life you always wanted.

Here is a web page I found that possibly will help me in my search for getting MONEY for my pictures!!

My creed.

I would be true, for there are those who trust me;

I would be pure, for there are those who care;

I would be strong- for there is much to suffer;

I would be brave, for there is much to dare.

I would be friend of all- the foe, the friendless;

I would be giving, and forget the gift.

I would be humble, for I know my weakness;

I would look up- and laugh- and love- and lift.

Beautiful prayer.

Psalm 16 (One of my favorite psalms...)

1 Keep me safe, O God,
for in you I take refuge.

2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing."

3 As for the saints who are in the land,
they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.

4 The sorrows of those will increase
who run after other gods.
I will not pour out their libations of blood
or take up their names on my lips.

5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;
you have made my lot secure.

6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.

7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.

8 I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,

10 because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.

11 You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Here are some pleasures that I enjoy... my children, the flowers... lovely hot summer days.
