Today's tip from Matt hits close to home. I struggle with this constantly: being present. I get so distracted by what's coming next or what I have to do tomorrow that I often forget to enjoy and savor today.
That's one of the reasons that I LOVE Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-Day Challenge - it helps me to STOP every day at least for a moment and think about my surroundings and just everyday stuff.
It's easy to remember to photograph a child's birthday party or a special occasion, but taking pictures of everyday things like the grass outside or something you wore today is not usually what we think of when we photograph. Capturing everyday moments and subjects is such a fun, creative outlet for me. And it helps me to be present.

Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!
