I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for..no matter how simple it is.
I love photography. And some days I also hate it.
I know the shots I want to take. And I get frustrated when they don't turn out quite as I imagine them to be.
And yet I know the only way I'll change that is by investing. Time. And lots of it.
Starting by overcoming the urge to stay in bed on one of the only two days a week I'm not already up at 5.30am.
Choosing the potential to create an amazing opportunity over the desire to just stay a while longer with eyes closed.
And so on this morning, I took a chance.
And fell in love all over again with this city.
I saw her opening herself up to the new day.
Opening her sleepy eyelids to greet the dawn.
I watched her allowing the day to caress and warm her cheeks.
This city, she opened her arms wide.
Embracing the possibility of the day.
And much much later, when the day is nearly done, I saw her exhale.
I saw the city allowing herself a moment, this moment, to simply enjoy the bokeh dancing before her eyes.
And the cars with their lights streaming all over the city providing an incredible all over body massage for her.
And when the moon rises, it's like a candle being lit over a romantic dinner for two, just me and her.
We linger over our meal, and sip the most delicious dessert wine signalling the stars to come out to play.
I learnt so much from this one day armed with patience and tripod and allowing the city to enamour and wrap herself around me with loving arms.
