WPC – Between flowers


I love this weeks challenge because I absolutely love the blog that has inspired it which is Broken Light Collective a truly beautiful blog full of amazing images taken by people who have used photography to work with and overcome struggles of the mind.

There have been times since I have followed this blog that the stories and photographs have resonated with me so clearly and with so much clarity, so this is a very special challenge for me. It has at times brought me to tears yet at the same time has taught me personally that without raw emotion I would not have one single photograph that means anything to me because I always try to photograph from my heart.

I decided a little while ago I was going to try and fill these challenges with new photographs. So this photograph is one from just today in the garden that I thought worked quite well. I failed to get the actual shot I wanted because Mr Bee was not in focus in the way I wanted. I wanted the movement in his wings but more focus in his body. It is proving quite the difficult shot to nail. However I still quite like it for all its flaws. This shot regardless of the fact that it wasn’t the shot I wanted taught me how badly off my settings were for this kind of shot and made me go away and think about what I need to change to get the shot that I initially wanted. (Which I haven’t as yet.)

Nobody ever always gets it right. It is essential in life to make mistakes because without them there can be no growth.

    • Thank you very much Jane. I am quite a private soul but the broken collective blog is such a wonderful blog and tells such a powerful story I urge everyone to follow it. 🙂

  1. I’m glad you posted this “gettaway” shot—it gave me a wide smile! It also makes me want to look again at my own collection of “Blur Bees”!

    • Ah there were many, many gettaway shots ha! Despite the fact they appear to bumble away banging into things they are surprisingly fast on those flowers. 🙂
