inspiration wednesday...


i wish i could just climb into this little world of pictures. whenever i'm stressed i find myself going over to flickr. i like that there are few to no words... i can just fall into them and imagine what i want. or they offer little glimpses into others lives, and i can imagine the rest. i like that some are made perfect, and that others show the beauty in an imperfect world. i know very little about photography. i bought myself a semi-fancy camera last year. i hope to have the time someday to actually learn how to use it. i like to take pictures though, and i like to share them. want to know another secret? i do not know how to use photoshop. my husband is a master, but i can't seem to get myself to learn it... my brain is too full right now maybe. i do appreciate the way others use it, and would like to have it as an option at some point. i tried some of the more basic programs, but never like the effect.

i also like that people link to their blogs, because if i am curious for more i can go there. i don't like or understand why flickr frowns on this? today was a baaaaad day. i was browsing flickr for a quick break and came across this photo by soule mama. it led me to this post... and suddenly i felt less alone.

find me on flickr... i really could use more friends to share with! no foolin;)

I felt the same way about Amanda's post today. I'm on flicker--I'll be your friend. ;-)

thanks melissa! i love your shop. i love your blogger bio. i can really relate. i didn't make it quite as far... went to grad school to become a film professor and changed my mind.
i think it's really cool what you are doing.

Beautiful post, especially the day I've had today. It's always nice to know others are in the same boat at times. The photos did a lot to uplift my spirits.

I love your picture list, pictures are an escape for me... especially taking them when I am discouraged or sad.
I will add you on flickr (I have no friends right now!) As soon as I upload some of my pictures, right now I have only been able to use it as an uploader for the bighugelabs mosaic maker. (Probably you will see me around this weekend!)
Picnik (http://picnik.com) is a really super easy photo shop online place that is free for certain things... I use it for free and I understand it! (So it is guaranteed that it will be easy!) You should take a peek and see if you like it, fancypicnic uses it and that is how I found it! (hhheeeeyyyyy....Their names match!)
See you around on Flickr!
Kendall
