As a photographer, it's easy to prove the above statement. Almost every photo I capture could be deemed as something that I have an appreciation for. I appreciate the red rust on a sheet of steel blue metal as easily as I am awe stricken by an Hawaiian sunset. So, I wondered, how I could artistically prove these statements.
Hmm? Well, one way would be to do a appreciation journal series. That would cover the writing about it — the IN part. But, how would I handle the ON part of the journal? Finding photos that I love would be no problem for the series covers, however, coming up with a title or header to encapsulate the series’ concept was another thing, especially when the words love and appreciating are so similar in nature. But like usual, after playing around with the words, I finally came up with a phrase — I Love Appreciating Life Journal. And the best part, as it turned out, was that this phrase had three different perceptions embedded within it. See below:
- I Love Appreciating Life Journal
- I Love Life - Appreciating Journal
- I Love Appreciating - Life Journal
They all work in my opinion. As you can see, it’s only a matter of where you want to lay the emphasis.
In the end, I picked the middle one (#2). And below are the final journal cover results. Plus, I wrote a little snippet to show how much appreciation I do have for the little things, the big things — All things.
That's all for now.
