Recently there have been quite a few moments that have made me smile - most fuelled by sunshine, a few fuelled by chocolate. Whenever this happens, I like to really take it in. Sometimes - if I have a phone/camera on me - I take a photo, other times I close my eyes and take a mental snap shot. I think this simple act is an important part of being happy; taking the time to appreciate such moments helps you get by when things ain't so rosy.
The moments I photographed:
bright pink lips for a sunny Sunday
al-fresco breakfast, chamomile tea, music & reading
favourite jewellery & favourite magazine
chocolate because, well... chocolate
The moments I didn't photograph:
coffee & croissants with my love
red wine, dinner & flat hunting
conversations with sanka cat
yoga in the sunshine
On reflection, none of these moments were particularly special - no birthdays, no landmarks, nothing deep and meaningful. Just perfectly ordinary events that, when looked at in the right light, are anything but.
What moments have made you smile lately?
