Be Yourself - Everyone Else is Taken

Are you familiar with Beth and her blog "Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken?"  She is an extremely talented photographer and her awesome photos are what initially drew me to her blog.  But then I stuck around because she intrigues me and I love the way she writes.

Back in May she had a photo contest and guess what?  I won!  I got to choose any photo I wanted on her entire blog.  I bet I spent an hour going through her work.  SO many gorgeous photographs.  After careful consideration I chose this one for a number of reasons.  First, it was taken at the beach and you know me - I'm a beach girl.  But the simple stacking of the stones is relaxing and calming and I actually have a similar stack of stones sitting like that on a shelf in my bedroom.  This photo is just so me!  Have you ever looked at a picture and instantly got it?


Beth also included a notecard using the same picture, which I then gave to my husband for his birthday.  It perfectly describes my life and how I feel about Louie because we are stacked together against whatever the wind blows our way, but at the same time we balance each other perfectly.  I can't imagine living my life without him.  He is my rock.


Beth just oozes talent and if you need tips or photo inspiration I urge you to look at her work.  Visit her blog and take the time to enjoy her perspective on this world. 
 
Thank you Beth for sharing a part of your soul with the blogging world.  Pictures do speak a thousand words and your photos always reveal a unique combination of strength and vulnerability.  You have a habit of showing us the inner beauty of your subjects and I often see things that I normally would have missed.   Because of you I realized that we are all often more fragile and vulnerable than we let on.   And that's ok.
