listening to yourself // Cornsilk
This year marks my third year of blogging. If you are new to blogspot, you could easily call that a long time, however for me, it feels like only yesterday I entered my sign in details and clicked confirm.
Like many others in this blogging community, I read blogs, get inspired by a paragraph of writing, a photo or even how she or he put their feelings into words! It is very easy to want to achieve the same effect as that person, but this is where I try to exercise a little more originality in how I write and photograph.
I remember a few months ago, I was outside walking around the house with my camera in hand when I came across a very pretty subject! A little pine cone. I angled my camera and hit the shutter button and took a very nice shot. However, as I was playing back the image, I thought to myself: 'This isn't like Carlotta does it! Maybe I should try again?" If that were 'Million Dollar Hotseat' that is where Eddie would have said, "Ooh, sorry incorrect answer." Taking a photo like Carlotta was very important to me! But funnily enough, no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't get it perfect. The reason being is because I am not Carlotta.
Lets be honest here, who else has been in that situation?
We need to listen to our own personal style. It may take some time to develop and exercise but we all have it!
So, that is why I am very excited to present to you, Cornsilk. Yes, it is a strange name. Cornsilk is actually a golden-blonde colour, and the reason behind calling my blog this, is because I am determined to make an effort here and everywhere to celebrate the golden moments in life. So, as I put my old Katie's Korner dress away in the closet, I'm pulling on a new one!
