My Best Photo 2010

This was the first time that I thought I had actually captured what I saw in my mind's eye with respect to black & white. (I had only just begun shooting in black and white, so the ‘mono-vision’ was still developing.)

Somewhere on a post recently someone mentioned a book, The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz.
I have this book, although I'm not by any means a religious person. There was a great deal of value in it for me. The four agreements are basically this:
Be impeccable with your word
Don't take anything personally
Don't make assumptions
Always do your best

My hope is to do better at these four things.

      The Four Agreements changed my life... learning to not take things personally or make assumptions were a turning point! Beautiful choice of 'best'!

      Marjorie, this is an excellent choice - it's perfect in focus and composition - very soft and serene. We've always lived by the "Do your best" philosophy in our family. Wishing YOU the best in 2011, my new friend!
