| #throughthelookingglass 6/6: The beauty of transparency.

I was immediately captured by Eric’s image on several levels. I often find his images stir something within and create space for good reflection. The overarching thought with this image was how when we are transparent with others about our entire life it is less about seeing the individual pieces, and more about noticing the beauty of the whole.
This is the final post for this @visotact #collab with @michael_mirza, @jrourkeiv and @ericmuhr, and I’m grateful for the chance to be stretched and share in creating with others. Please check out and follow the project for future assignments.

I’ve been loving working on this #collab with @jrourkeiv, @ericmuhr and @michael_mirza. Our assignment is above and we are posting under the @visotact project. Feel free to tag and join in!
This image is brought by Michael Mirza. It prompted reflection on the ways we try and recreate the natural world around us. Greenhouses are great for this. And in the end they are reflections of what occurs naturally. I loved how Michael’s image captures this action of recreating, and my hope is to show how, though indoor things can thrive and be beautiful, they are still shadows of what is outside the glass. In turn, this causes self-reflection for my personal being. I feel Michael’s work creates space for this reflection often, and I encourage you to look through his gallery for inspiration and challenge, too. And I don’t say that just because he’s a great friend and photographer.

Today is the fourth day of the #visotact #collab with @ericmuhr, @jrourkeiv, and @michael_mirza. This is the first day of sharing an edit from one of the other members of this project and I’m stoked at the new perspective J’s image gave me. With the assignment title in mind, I wanted to make sure that, although the background was already blurred, my eye was drawn specifically to the foreground in particular. It reminds me of the moments in life when what’s before me makes it hard to see what’s beyond—which is exactly what I need to do in expanding my vision at times. J’s a person that is very intentional about living life with meaning and enjoyment—both the serious and the play—and I love how these aspects come through in his work. Please check his gallery out!
