Weekly Photo Challenge and Photo-Heart Connection

Today I am reaching out to some new communities of like-minded photography bloggers by participating in Kat Eye Studio‘s monthly Photo-Heart Connection series and WordPress’ weekly photo challenge.

The idea behind Kat’s Photo-Heart Connection series is to help deepen the connection between your photos and your heart.  Review your photos from the previous month and post the one that best connects to your heart.  Then link up with others and develop relationships with photographers also searching for that connection.

The photo I selected from May is one that I almost didn’t take.  I was with my daughter walking past a little pond on our way to a story hour at a park.  We were a little late so when I noticed these lily pads, I didn’t stop to point out their beauty or take a picture.  Then I came to my senses, backtracked, and we spent a couple minutes looking at them and all the different colored flowers.  It was the best part of my day.

“Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.” ~Khalil Gibran

The WordPress weekly photo challenge theme is TODAY.

“It’s about TODAY. This day. The day you’re reading and reacting to this post. No rules or guidance on what to post other than the photo must be taken today!”

Well ok then! I read the prompt, took the photos, and scheduled this post… for a few days later!

This lovely cafe is such a great spot for a breakfast date or sitting alone with a cup of coffee and a book.  Won’t you join me?

  1. One of Robyn’s favorite haunts, she introduced me to Brazil a couple years ago. Loved the chicken salad sandwich. Your photos make me feel like I’m right there, tasting that great sandwich again. You are gifted, Na.

  2. I love your lily pads! I’m so glad that you “came to your senses” and went back to capture that image. It’s a beautiful, peaceful photograph. I can see why it connects to your heart! Thank you for joining us in the Photo-Heart Connection. I’m glad to have you!

  3. I love the hear when others consciously stop and turn around just to grab a shot. (I do it all too often.) Your Lily pad image is so tranquil. Oh, if only I lived closer I would gladly meet you for coffee. 🙂

  4. it is easy to let the most important moments pass as mundane. so wonderful that you came to your senses. . . . and what a terrific lesson for your daughter. i love lilies. we don’t seem them much in so. california.
