STATE OF MIND – The Power of Colors & Textures: I’ve always believed that our words, photos/symbols and actions reflect our state of mind and so it is wide to choose carefully how we want to spend our time; both internally and externally. I love nature, color, textures and art, and I create collages that combine my interpretation of those mediums because I see the richness they bring to all aspects of life. I chose to add a few collages I created using those mediums for today’s exercise. So what you will see are photos that have been enhanced, brightened, changed and made into many forms that reflect my state of mind. I hope you enjoy this approach and I will come see yours. Our state of mind is a delicate balance of our hopes, dreams and our reality … Be vigilant with yours.

HOW DID YOU DO THAT? I find that color cheers me up; especially in the winter season so I find myself gravitating towards things that add color to my world. Come back soon for more photos and an explanation on how this was created.

What Is Your STATE OF MIND?
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: STATE OF MIND – Every photo we take says something about our emotions at the moment of taking it. So this week, share an image where you see a particularly strong connection between what we see and what you felt as you pressed that shutter button on your camera or phone. I look forward to seeing your photos!
