Beauty Doesn't Always Shout

In our busy lives we rush around with our head in our phones or thinking about the next meeting, social media post or worrying about something that hasn't happened yet.
Our days are filled with...


So much stuff.

Worry and stress and did I want a latte or a mocha coffee.


Feel the moment...

Right in this moment is where ideas are formed, love happens and inspiration occurs.

Being a photographer means I can't have my head full too much of the time because, I would then miss out on the beauty around me.

I'd miss that shot because I was thinking about something else other than the moment.

Beauty doesn't always shout because beauty sits quietly on its own doing its thing and, we rush past and miss it.

So next time your head is full and you feel disconnected, follow the steps again...


You'll be amazed at what inspiration you can find and the ideas that will arrive.

Trust me.

Do you think Branson has his best ideas when he's running around stressed?
