Positives and Negatives

“Life is like photography. You need the negatives to develop.”

I try to see the positives in situations. That doesn’t mean I would count myself as an optimist as I also see the negatives. I feel that this gives me the most realistic view and being realistic is what works best for me.  The past few years have been really hard for us. Our lives have changed quite considerably and we have found some aspects of the changes really tough. However, we also have aspects of our lives where we feel really blessed and fortunate. I think that life is like this really.

Every picture can be seen from an alternative viewpoint. Sometimes that means that things make you feel as if you have been turned upside down or inside out. Sometimes it feels like your fortunes have been reversed. And sometimes, it is a case of pausing for a moment to gain perspective and see if things will feel different if looked at from a new angle. I think that photography is like that too. With different lighting or a different filter an image can be altered in a way which seems to change its meaning. I don’t think negatives are bad unless you view them badly. It has worked better for us to try to see them as an opportunity for change, whether change was what you had planned or not.

  1. You’re gorgeous here! From the little snapshots I get from your photos, your home looks amazingly beautiful and sexy. I have a degree in Interior Design so I’m always curious about how people design their personal space, and yours is incredibly intriguing!

    • How interesting that you look at the backgrounds in that way. They aren’t all at home but thank you for the compliment. Not sure my bedroom looked as good without the edit tho 😊

  2. It is a cracking shot and I love how the edit makes it look like you are wearing thigh high white boots. And damn it woman you have an amazing figure


    • I NEED those thigh high boots Molly. I have some white gogo boots which I should use for a picture actually. The picture was a part of a set of selfies I took for HL when he was away. 😊

  3. A damn fine sexy shot indeed. Missy can be quite negative when critically assessing a situation but will often find a positive angle to work on. I’m very lucky in many ways.
