Pretty pictures

Whenever I look at beautiful pictures, I feel inspired.
Photographs have a way of not only capturing a moment, but a feeling.

Flipping back through photo-albums takes me back to lazy summer days spent laying on my trampoline with friends.
I am transported back to a time when I had braces, or crazy poofy hair.

I am taken back in time to first crushes, first heartbreaks, and the start of friendships that still exist today.

Pictures have a way of making our hearts happy, or sad.
Their language is universal and their images can be interpreted in many different ways.

...I feel free and happy. I want to travel and bask in the glow of the warm sun.

...........I am transfixed by this little girl's gorgeous eyes. It makes me wonder what she is thinking, what she has seen.

...........makes me smile. Pure and simple.

This pretty picture................

..........makes me dream about a wedding. It makes me think about that special day and I find myself hoping that I feel this light and happy too.

Lastly, some photos........

...........may not be breathtakingly beautiful or artistic, but can be quirky and cute. Pictures like these make me smile. They make me happy.

I am a person that is constantly taking pictures of my friends, family, and the world around me. 

While I might not take the best pictures ever, or have the vision of a great photographer, I can still capture memories.

I can still create a memory that I can look back and smile on.....and for now, that is good enough for me.

Loving all of these photos, and that last quote is timeless. I try to stop over-analyzing and over-complicating things and just enjoy the moment.
