Breathing comes natural to all of us, however slowing down to actually breathe is completely different than breathing to take in oxygen.
In today’s world life is busier than ever. We are bombarded with various types of social media, cell phones, text messages, our jobs and possibly parenting. I thought when my daughter was grown and I wasn’t taking her to and from places anymore, life would slow down. Not the case at all!
As a photographer, there are so many aspects to running a business, especially when you also work a full time day job. With Instagram, Facebook, websites, blogging and actually trying to take photographs, life seems incredibly busy.
This week, after a very busy and exhausting weekend (a blog for another day) I wanted to share some peaceful images. My hope is that while you look at the images, maybe you can slow your mind down for just a few minutes. Retraining our minds to accept our lives as they really are, not as we have envisioned them, may help in the process of being able to breathe and slow down. Try and enjoy a few quiet and peaceful moments on a daily basis. Even if it is just for ten minutes to sit quietly and listen to your favorite music, read a favorite magazine or simply close your eyes and do nothing, but breathe.
While you enjoy a few quiet moments, here is to a peaceful week ahead . . .
Until we meet again,

A visual storyteller. I use flowers, tea cups, cake plates and various props to tell still life stories. I grew up in the city, but I have lived in the suburbs for over 30 years. Living close to the beach and a local small village has given me the opportunity to tell my story through photographs.
beautiful Debra, thanks for taking time to help slow things down a bit, and for us to breathe and take it all in.
Thank you Cecelia. 😊
Beautiful post! Thanks for sharing relaxing inspiration!

Beautiful! Words and pictures! I was trying to decide which photo I like best … they’re all beautiful! I think the last may be my favorite … although I don’t know … so peaceful! I love how you did such different settings for your still life!
Wow! Thank you so much!! That means quite a bit to me, coming from you 💕🌷💕
You’re so sweet Debra!
Absolutely beautiful Debra, you have really mastered your craft. The flowers are perfect as is the color of the chair. Superb
Thank you Tina! That is so sweet of you to say. The blue chair is one of my favorite props, I’m happy you like my work.
