Message from your Heart


Your heart has a message for you. It says, "Stop running around. Do something you love."




You can link in this weekend with the Mortal Muses on negative space. If you are looking for peaceful images that give you space to breathe, check these out. There is something so calming about negative space in photos.

This stoplight is real, the heart is not a figment of my imagination created in Photoshop. It could be found a few blocks from our apartment in Italy. We lived near a hospital, and one of the intersections near the research buildings had this stoplight. Very cool, huh? I tried photographing it numerous ways, but it turns out negative space, stoplight and sky, was the way to go. 

I hope you'll heed this message over the weekend. Stop with the "to do" list for a little while and do something you love. Your heart will thank you!

  3. I love that the stop light is shaped like a heart. It's a great reminder to "stop and follow your heart" - we could use a few stoplights like that around here.

  19. What a good message to heed. I'm trying not to run, to slow down, to look. Hard sometimes, necessary too. Love how you presented this image with the negative space and the contrast of blue and dark.
