Remember that there was once a time when photography didn’t exist. A time when precious or stressful moments couldn’t be captured, uploaded and shared.
I look back at my baby pictures and there were only a handful. My mom and dad had a single picture each and I don’t know if I have ever saw one of any of my grandparents. Compare all of that to the albums upon albums that I have of my sons who are now young adults.
How Times Have Changed
Today, we don’t even print all of our pictures, but save them to on-line albums or files to be viewed at an instant.
Photography is a great hobby that can help us build our resiliency. It is something to take our minds off of all of our stressful life situations. Photography captures moments that are gone forever. It can help us to appreciate the world around us.
Beverly’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency Through Photography:
- A picture really is worth a thousand words. How better to express yourself than through pictures. You can catch a look that says it all. Or you can shoot photographs that convey messages or emotions that can be difficult to express in words.
- Photography can be a means to get out of your home and capture various subjects while remaining physically active. Use your camera to take note of the awesome or the bizarre. Have some fun looking for the humour in everyday life.
- Photography is a good activity to strengthen relationships and get rid of loneliness by partnering with friends and family. Make it an outing and invite others to join you. Visit the park or a natural habitat and spend time discussing what you see.
- Photography is a hobby that can be easy or complicated depending on your experience. It is one that is simple enough to get into and complicated enough to keep you learning for years.
