My Favorite Place

How far I have come!

Photography has opened up a whole new world for me
How I love looking at my life
through my camera lens
I feel safe and connected there.

My photo prompt for 
this week
was "My Favorite Place"
I had to really think on this one!

I thought of my art studio
where of course I love to be
I thought of my back yard
which is my little corner of heaven
I thought of the ocean shore
in the Outer Banks
where I seek refuge
over and over again
I thought of my Poetry Books
where I retreat to
for nourishment
I even thought of my weaving loom
who has been with me for so long

None of these places were
exactly my favorite,
then I realized that it had to be
behind my camera lens
for that truly is my favorite place!

My camera is my constant companion
there is always something new that I
see and observe
and that I want to capture!
I am having so much fun with
my iPhone too
for I am an Instagram addict!
I love capturing snippets of my daily life
and seeing what others are doing too!
It is a way to keep us all connected.
I can always find inspiration there.

So yes to my favorite place
She is my friend, companion and teacher.
 She has taught me to look at life
so differently now!
I have learned so much along the way.
I can't wait to see what comes next!
