8 Life Lessons I Have Learned from Photography

(Thanks Dave Powell for the idea)


  1. View life from a high vantage point. When we can see the big picture of life the small, momentary problems become much less important.
  2. Keep your eyes open everywhere you go. You never know what amazing event you stumble on.
  3. Pay attention to details. Although it’s good to understand and appreciate the big picture, the beauty of life is in the details. Practice by giving flowers.
  4. Look around. You may have heard the saying, “Take time to stop and smell the roses.” Too often we are in such a rush to get someplace, we miss all the wonderful things along the way. Stop, take a moment to look around, and think about Rule #3.
  5. Get up early. Sometimes the best times of life aren’t the most convenient. But a willingness to go the extra mile for your passions can memorable results.
  6. Experiment and try new things. Life was never meant to be boring, and if you’re bored, go challenge yourself. Try something you’ve never tried before.
  7. Always be ready. Opportunities are everywhere for the person who keeps their eyes open and their heart willing.
  8. Be patient. So many people are in a hurry, wanting things - everything - right now. It’s okay to wait.
