Contemplative Photography & Slow Travel
What is contemplative photography?
Go beyond the habitual ways of seeing and looking - beauty is everywhere!
There’s an inner longing in all of us to see beauty. It’s one of the first things we « plan » when free time comes our way: an outing to our local museum, a weekend getaway to mountains or the seaside, a trip to some far off foreign shore to behold something beyond what we already know. There’s a need to connect to our longing for beauty and to behold it in our eyes.
What if we could find beauty every day, in the mundane of our routines, and even in the off-putting circumstances that inevitably creep up? Could we also be challenged to experience beauty in the midst of our pain and brokenness?
Tour Avignon with a stress-free plan
Tour Avignon the best way – gourmet food, away from the noise, in the secret spots and with time to soak it all in…
There is something about standing at the comptoir with a double expresso in a french looking coffee cup and starting the day with the locals. It was early morning and the indoor gourmet market in Avignon was just starting. It’s quite amusing to watch the French start their day at the market stand. If you ever go early to a market don’t forget to observe – a cultural experience guaranteed.
After sipping and enjoying my expresso with un peu de crème I meandered the market with my camera to capture the colors and textures. It was barely 10am and the merchants still seemed busy setting up, preparing food and finishing up their own café.
