A new year has started and hope of change saturates our souls.
Sometimes all it needs is that we are the ones that need changing.

There is an old story that goes like this:

A man prays and prays all his life for the lottery jackpot and nothing happens.
When he dies he meets God and asks him "why did you not answer my prayer?"
God looks at him, exhales deeply, and says "well, I wanted to but maybe you should just have bought a lottery ticket once in your life."

Just praying and leaning back, waiting for a miracle won't get you anywhere. Get up and do something.

Last year I had almost lost my love for photography. I have probably never shot as few frames as in 2011.
My mother, my personal saint, gave me an iPhone for xmas.
So far this year i have shot over 600 pics. I am learning every day and have rediscovered my fascination.

My quest for this year and the future is to shoot a minimum of one finished picture a day.

I can pray for inspiration, but I am the one who needs to go out and seek for it.

Have a great inspired 2012
