It's easy to think that photography only applies to special events and moments; however, some of my most meaningful captures have been made while shooting on an ordinary day - and while shooting the things that are a part of my everyday life. Maybe it was a person that, in what seemed like an instant, was gone. Maybe it was a pet that is no longer with us. Maybe it was a shot of the yard or our house before the next project changed it.
Progress is easy to forget and overlook if we let ordinary days pass us by. Having a few photos from everyday life to look back on from time to time can change our perspective and help us remember and appreciate what was - or maybe how things have changed for the better.
My challenge to you is this: take your camera out - not because of something special - just take it out. Take pictures of what surrounds you. Print a few of them off and create an album of everyday life. The things you capture can turn out to be both beautiful and special, as sometimes it's the smallest parts of our lives that end up giving the most meaning to our experience on this earth.
The following are a few of my "everyday" images that I'm grateful to have.
