I like to think of my blog as a community of friends who care about one another, so before Christmas, I decided to offer support to two women who are passionate about what they do.
1). Fiona Hugosson-Miller or LadyFi, to those of you who are familiar with her beautiful photography. I purchased one of Fiona’s prints which is called: Soul Food. You can see Fiona’s matted print on my living room wall. To view her work, please click on Red Bubble button at the bottom of her blog.
I asked Fiona to describe “Soul Food.”
“It was taken on the evening of May 28 2010 at about 8.45 pm, so no doubt I ran out to take this shot in my dressing gown!
After a long winter, it was so lovely to see the sky in all its glory again. This jetty is just one minute from our house and I can peek out of the kitchen window or my daughter’s bedroom to see the lake. Naturally I saw the sky lit up like a stained glass window so ran outside and took a few shots of this miraculous sky. So, it was a spontaneous photo shoot if you like – as are most of my shots.
I used my Canon 500D for the shot and was shooting on a large aperture to let in the light: f/5.6 – the shutter speed was: 1/250.
I didn’t take that many pictures but stood gazing at the sunset for ages. I felt inspired and nourished, which is why I called the shot: Soul Food.”
2). Annabel Candy from GetintheHotSpot.
I mentioned Annabel Candy in one of my previous posts.
Annabel is a Gutsy business woman. As she puts it: “I delved into the sordid world of shameless self-promotion. Why? Mainly because I’m not good at it and it scares me. You see, I work hard to promote my blog and do stuff that scares me, so practicing the fine art of shameless self-promotion seemed like a good way to combine those two things.”
I found Annabel’s, “Successful Blogging in Twelve Simple Steps,” to be extremely helpful and am still learning as I read each chapter and case study. I decided to support her blog by wearing her logo for inspiration.
Here’s to a year full of passion and inspiration. What is yours?
