I dreamed a dream

This week’s P52 prompt had me stumped for most of the week.  I had no idea how I would capture this idea of dreaming in a meaningful way.  I thought of a few things that really just did not work out as I attempted to shoot the concept.  I will go back and revist the ideas, but for this prompt I needed to keep it simple.   And, I wanted to be true in reflecting a real dream of mine…something I really work at with ferver and passion to make  a reality.  I know this won’t be unique,  and I know many of you will share my enthusiasm.

The dream I dream right now is that I will really and deeply learn the art of photography.  Sure, I want to succeed in a buisness one day.  At the very same time, if I never get paid another dime, it will be okay.  I love learning.  I love striving to take a great image.  I am praying every day that I would learn to be a great photographer for the beauty and the art.   I pray that somehow I will capture the beauty of the world and people around me,  that it would be a small glimpse of our creator and the joy He must have felt in creating.   As I find myself frustrated by the depth of knowledge and skill needed, I will keep shooting.  I recognize that the simple part is dropping money on equipment, but the real test is in hours and hours of hard work.  I’m not discouraged because this is the dream I am willing to work for.
