The Sierra Club has a website called the Daily Ray of Hope, a link to which was forwarded to me a few weeks ago by a very encouraging friend. She described these rays as a "bright spot" for her in box and a "potential photo exhibition space" for our photography. Once you sign up, the Sierra Club sends out "images and inspirational words" every day. Any one can submit images and you never know which image is selected until the email arrives.
I found yesterday's "Ray" particularly poignant as Peter and I continue to pursue and grow with our passion - photography. So I thought I'd share it with you too.
"It's actually a rare and precious thing to discover what it is you love to do, and I encourage you to remain unapologetically consumed by it. Be faithful to your gift and very confident in its value." Jonathan Ive
Now if you, like me, have no clue who Jonathan Ive is, he's the Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple, Inc. According to Wikipedia, he is the principal designer of the iMac, MacBook, iPod, iPhone and iPad. How could I have never heard of this man because he's materially changed our lives? Peter and I converted to the world of Apple a year and a half ago and have at least one of each of these hardware products, and we find we couldn't live without them, especially in support of our photography. So thank you Mr. Ive for your passion and your encouraging words.
This is my submission to Daily Ray of Hope today.
