Un Livre Je Suis Lecture...

"Photography is a way to capture and celebrate life"

If you're anything like me you love the art of photography...taking pictures, flipping through photography books, looking through old family albums and digging through photo boxes. When mum gave me Linda McCartney's book "Wide Open" I immediately fell in love with Linda's photos and the beauty each picture captures. Linda McCartney alongside being an avid animal-rights advocate, musician, author and wife of The Beatles' Paul McCartney, was also a gifted photographer. Her pictures take its viewers on a journey of calm and serenity, and prove that you don't need to be a world traveller to capture the beauty of nature or the natural world...simply look out your front door or window, take a walk through your garden, or visit the beach.

This book has inspired me to carry my camera around with me wherever I go and find beauty in even the smallest things life has to offer us...

You are so right Kate. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. A positive attitude makes good pictures, as I have noticed my mood will often determine what I photograph.
Linda McCartney's book looks interesting.

Ooohhh, I love this post! Photography is one of my favorite media, and I'm hoping to someday soon take a photography class. I need to find Linda's book...she was a wonderful photographer.

I will be posting about a neat photography site in the next week or two, and I think you'll enjoy it.

Love, Andrea
