inspiration: looking for the quiet

Finding quiet spaces, places to reflect and let ideas unfold, giving one’s self the gift of that, may at times seem difficult, and at times, it is. It’s necessary though, both to look for that quiet and to accept it when it comes.

This photograph was made just at sunset in the midst of the very busy city center in Newry, County Down, Northern Ireland.

Agree with Anjuli--just looking at this makes me calm. Actually, I start every morning by looking at the blue Arizona sky and thanking the world for being there.

I'm impressed that you said the photo was "made." A travel editor friend of mine recently told me she was informed by a travel photographer that this is the correct way to phrase that. I've always said or written "taken," as in, "the photograph was taken..." In fact, photos are made, just as you say here. I rarely see that being correct phrase being used. Now that I have, it does make sense. Not that this has much to do with your post, actually. It's just something I noticed as I spend some time here reading your blog.
