Everyday Thankful | A Photo Series
This series. Oh, I told you I couldn't wait to see what unfolds.
My good friend and extremely talented photographer, Mike Davis, opens this series. A series of everyday good.
Reminders that we have so much to be grateful for.
Thank you so much, Mike. These photos are beautiful.
First things first, I'm truly grateful to Ashley for asking me to contribute to her amazing website, and more so, for her sharing her incredible talent with the universe. Thank you, Ashley.
Now, you may not know me, but it is quite easy for me to be cynical and take things so literally that any context to a situation is lost. For example, I planned to shoot for this assignment primarily on a particular Saturday. I cleared my schedule and was jacked to spend a great deal of time focused on the topic at hand and really create something meaningful. However, clouds, rain, fog, and anything else bad for my ideas, showed their face and completely thwarted all plans. No problem, the cynic in me says, just take some crappy photos of the things you're thankful for (sunlight) and state, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." But, no, I could not play that card because I am truly thankful for each and every season here in Maine and am blown away by the ever-changing weather situations. The very next day I, and every other Mainer, was blessed with a gorgeous 50 degree day with high seas and plenty of sunshine.
So what am thankful for? I am thankful that no matter what the weather these views never let me down.
Mike - Thank you again! What a beautiful way to kick off the new series!
If you would like to participate in this ongoing series, please contact me. I'd love to share the good.
