Daily Practice 26/365

Title: "When he squinted his weary eyes, he thought he saw the stairway to heaven"

Things become habit forming because constant repetition strengthens the neural pathways used in the activity/behaviour, and less used pathways fall dormant. Committing to this daily practice of taking a photograph is starting to have that benefit for me. I was not feeling well this afternoon/evening, yet I felt the urge to make a photograph. No ideas in mind, everything seemed like too much work, yet the urge was persistent. Mindful that photographs are waiting to be made steps away, I put a homemade slit lens on the camera, and stepped out into the backyard. A little bit of magic ensued.
