As I posted a black and white photo last week, I have decided that I will do all photos in September in monochrome to keep it fair. Some photos look stunning with no colour in them, and I was trying to take photos of flowers earlier in the week, but they were too light so didn’t stand out well. This one did though.
I was reading blogs yesterday – okay today seeing as this is scheduled as my computer is going to be on a fix haul this weekend. I was reading Michelle Marie‘s blog, and she was saying that she was in a bad mood, and then she had to take her daughter to the doctor’s as she had a fall and injured her knee. Although she was in pain, she still managed to smile, and it made Michelle realise that there’s a reason to smile all the time, and smiling can make all the difference.
I went to take some photos at the rowing club on Thursday evening as one of the rowers was heading off to Bristol to do her final year at University. I saw an old couple sitting on their steps with blankets over their legs and I thought it was so sweet. I waved to them and said “good evening”. The woman gave me such a huge smile and waved so much I thought her arm was going to fall off. It made me smile knowing how happy she was that I had acknowledged her. I did think of asking for a photo of them, but changed my mind.
Michelle found that if her daughter could smile in the face of adversity, then so could she. I smiled and said good evening to a woman, and that smile she gave me was worth a billion smiles. So a smile can make all the difference. Smile. It’s good for you.
Hope you all have a great weekend
