Beauty is everywhere, but can you see it?

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” – Ashley Smith

 

It’s too easy to take for granted the innate beauty all around us: the flowers, trees, and blue skies. But what if you slowed down and really looked…

What if you pulled over off the highway to watch a beautiful sunset?
What if you took the time to feel the warm sunshine on your skin?
What if you listened to the sound of birds chirping?

What would your life be like then?

Life becomes manageable when you slow down. It ceases to feel rushed, overwhelming, and hectic.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharlal Nehru

 

When you slow down, you begin to use all of your senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell.

Fresh strawberries taste better when you slow down long enough to smell them. Food is more nourishing when enjoyed fully. The same goes with any other experience.

What do you want your life experience to be? What do you want it to look like?

Find and see the beauty all around you, and your life changes for the better.

“Beauty awakens the soul to act.” – Dante Alighieri

 


What students say about Brit’s teaching:

“I’ve taken many classes. With the way Brit taught and explained things, I finally said, ‘I get it’. She made me enjoy taking photographs.”

“I have taken quite a few courses offered by BPSOP and learned so much from each one of them. All of your teachers are stellar. Brit Hammer’s class and method of critiquing took me to another level, and I am so appreciative. The video format and her commitment and energy she puts into her students’ work is inspiring and makes you want to work that much harder to utilize her suggestions for improving your photographs.” – Patricia Tedeschi – Galarneau (Celebrate Your Life in Beautiful Images)
