The power of the sun……

April 10th, 2011

I woke up yesterday morning and was met with glorious sunshine; I instantly knew that the weekend ahead would be a good one. I headed out for an early morning swim before driving over to the Trafford Centre to meet up with some fellow photographers. A couple of hours later, I left Starbucks feeling energised and inspired and started the next part of my day. I met up with my friend Ste, meandered around a few shops and treated myself to a new pair of Converse trainers; so far the day was good. We had lunch and then took a walk down Worsley canal. The weather was stunning; the sun was shining, the birds were singing and I felt positive about things on the horizon.

When I woke up this morning and was met with the same glorious sunshine pouring through the windows, I couldn’t wait to get started with my day. Ian and I abandoned our “spring cleaning” day and headed out into the sun; we visited a few garden centres and ended up buying a blueberry bush! When we returned home to plant it, I got to thinking about how much more positive I feel when the sun is out; the nights are getting lighter, and hopes and ambitions seem possible rather than just a dream.

I thought about the month ahead. My plans. My projects. I then thought about the week ahead; opportunities for some very interesting projects, a wedding course at Aspire with the fantastic photographer Jessica Claire, followed by a wedding on Saturday where I can put into practice what I’ve learnt. I’ve also got the “Building your wedding photography business” classes from Creative Live and amazing wedding photographer Jasmine Star to watch.

So many things to plan and look forward to; the power of the sun eh? It’s an amazing thing. Happy weekend everyone!!
