I’ve mentioned on many occasions how photography is a form of therapy for me. Picking up the camera and peering through the viewfinder is a great way to unwind. The key to this therapy is slowing down and observing. We pass by uninteresting things every day, but there is an element of beauty in the mundane. It wasn’t until I picked up the camera, that I learned to “see.” After a rough day at the office, I needed some unwinding. I typically shoot outdoors much later into the evening for better lighting, but sometimes you just have to shoot when time allows. My unwinding session yielded a small collection of random images from landscapes to still life.
Did the unwinding session work? Yes it did! I felt relaxed during and after this session. The only downside is that I did not have more time to explore. Whatever it is that makes you slow down and escape reality, even if it is just from a moment, I believe it would be in our best interest to do so. Our lives would be less stressful.
