The Time Is Now

Impressions from yesterday morning, strolling through an area I have not been for a while now. Even if you think the weather is too crabby for photography – give it a try and you might get back with some favorites of yours. All images are shot with the incredible Canon G1X and none of the images are converted into b&w – they are all color images. What I love most about photography? …living in the Now, living in the moment! No thoughts about what was (the past) and about what will be (the future), just living in the present and living each moment to its fullest, loving what you are doing at that exact moment. The improvement on this would be to have this attitude on an ordinary, daily basis, with everything that you do, not only when doing what you love. To me, it feels like a journey inwards, a journey I can´t book, a journey with an open end, a journey I don´t know where it will lead to…On the other hand, I´ve booked a self-guided tour to Iceland from the 8.-22.Dec.2013, maybe I can combine those two journeys into one….

Something to think about at the end of the day (by Max Lucado), which brought tears to my eyes while reading it that very morning: “When you are in the final days of your life, what will you want? Will you hug that college degree in the walnut frame? Will you ask to be carried to the garage so you can sit in your car? Will you find comfort in reading your financial statement? Of course not. What will matter then will be people. If relationships will matter most then, shouldn´t they matter most now?”….there is always a possibility to change your opinion/attitude/whatsoever – if you don´t feel comfortable with the old one – change it – Now.

Hope you enjoy the stills/video and make sure to hit the HD-Button for a higher quality! Music by Loreena McKennitt – The Mummer´s Dance. Cheers!
