The real juice of life, whether it be sweet or bitter, is to be found not nearly so much in the products of our efforts as in the process of living itself, in how it feels to be alive.

Put it in your calendar. Try to schedule the time for doing what you love. I had two friends ask me to take pictures for them this week. I love using what I have learned in the past to practice my photography skills.

I read an article in Click Magazine last night written by Kelle Hampton. She described her reasons for leaving her photography business behind and getting back to what she loved, taking real life pictures instead of posed photoshoots with props of all sorts. As much as she appreciates the art of portrait photography, she prefers to take pictures of things in her life that make her happy. The moment that is held onto forever because of that single photograph. I concur.
