Adventures In Seeing
As I navigate my way thru the 45 prompts/excercises in Kim’s “Adventure In Seeing” I will be Pausing, Focusing and Connecting with photography prompts that inter- twinkle with the feeling one has as they awaken to their life.
Upon downloading Adventures In Seeing I anticipated a cursary scan thru the iBook to start. The thought of scanning evolved into hours of delight filling myself with Kim’s wisdom, direction, story sharing and philosophies. The purity and simplicity of the page layout visually drew me into her world where I lingered. I wanted to know more. I was a contented explorer. I just kept going.
In the coming days I will return to the beginning and immerse myself in the photography prompts. A task I am relishing. The timing is perfect to start my journey of capturing images during the cocooning months of winter. I will bring my wonder seeking self to each prompt.
Kim inspires with a gift of sharing knowledge that runs deep. Each time I have taken an online workshop with her I expand. My curiosity curtains fling themselves wide open revealing new ways of seeing; always an adventure, always empowering. Kim's voice remains long after the workshop has ended. I now have Adventures In Seeing for inspiration on demand. It is a never ending gift to myself.
