In the name of World Happy Day today, I wanted to thank Ines from I’monnet Photo for including me in her nominations, as recipient of the One Lovely Blog Award. I am really grateful for that and wanted to say thank you for the inspiration through your blog! You’re always sharing tips on photography and interesting information on the intangibles, like style.
I’m continuously inspired by others and their works, and whilst I struggle with selecting a few blogs for such award nominations, I think it is important to share the love. Finding inspiration through others is a very uplifting feeling and I would like to show this via blog posts that have really resonated with me.
I hope you’ll enjoy them.
barbaraelka – This post on “European Helmets at the Met” is so beautifully photographed that I might have to trek uptown and view a part of the museum that I rarely venture into. Barbara’s blog always has great photographs; excellent style.
mondomulia has photographed a series of wonderful photographs in this Coming Soon Coffee post. Read this is you are a lover of cafes, sweets, coffee, and crisp photography.
draw and shoot – Karen’s latest post, “Deconstructing Architecture: The Canadian War Museum” is just beautiful. Lines, mystery and urban beauty; it has really elevated my appreciation for architecture photography.
cindymccauley – for some of the coolest macro shots I have ever seen! This post especially, “Shoo Fly, Don’t Bother Me” shows how beautiful a fly actually is!
Life through a lens – a wonderful post on tips for protecting that all-expensive camera; Val has documented gorgeously photographed ‘moments’; an inspiring photographer and person.
the human picture – ShimonZ writes with such grace and honesty. His posts are always so meaningful – this one “On Being Awake” especially so.
Cornwall – A Photographic Journey – Adrian has a gift for bringing ease into complexity. “That Water Effect” shows his gift for photography, whilst being able to share his learnings effortlessly.
Aware of the Void – the wittiness of this post “Spring to be Sprung” is too good. Brendan has an extensive portfolio of photographs that I always gain inspiration from.
Babb Photo Blog – an honest look at channeling a negative emotion into a positive one. This post brought to mind the quote by Theodore Roosevelt: “Comparison is the thief of Joy”.
cameravagrant – JP’s latest post, “Nowhereville” intrigued me so much. In fact, his entire portfolio is amazing; for the moodiness, the light, the words.
Homemade Wellbeing – ever since Kristina posted on parsley tea, I have been drinking it! One day, Kristina will open her own store filled with natural products and potions!
A Certain Slant of Light Photography – I am such a fan of this post, “A Florentine Sunset”; well, the whole blog really. A lovely portfolio to look through.
My thoughts, pics and personal opinions – when I shared this post with my yoga school, the manager replied, “It’s good to be a Gumby”. Pedro – I am looking forward to more yoga-inspired quotes!
I’monnet Photo – a perfect way to end is to share Ines’ series on “How to Define Your Style”. This post, in particular, shares the notion of being inspired by others. I’d like to share the quote on this particular page with you though hope you’ll check the post out for yourself:
“Nothing in this world ever makes sense without a context, it is easy to take the qualities of your work for granted, before having witnessed someone else’s approach. I strongly encourage you to participate in something where you can see your work alongside other people’s.”
