To keep my creative juices flowing I’ve become part of a monthly photography collective. We’re a group of photographers from all over the world who post ten photos every month on the tenth of the month. It’s called “10-on-10” and we link to each other blogs to share our work.
In December I wrote an article about Ken Shelf, the owner of Succulence in Bernal Heights, and you can read that here if you missed it. We talked about this idea of living a succulent life. To Ken it mean slowing down to appreciate the beauty and richness all around us and sharing that with others. Since his shop has an amazing visual aesthetic, filled with a plant lovers eye candy, I decided to dedicate my first 10-on-10 post to some of my favorite shots from that photo shoot. Nine of these are from Succulence on Cortland Avenue, with an extra one from the beautiful Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma.
As part of the collective, this month I get to share the work of photographer Trine Nilsen from Norway. Trine takes baby and family portraits that really reflect this idea of a succulent lifestyle. This month she had some technology issues (as we all do) so she did a series of drawings about her creative process. I’m always so impressed when people can draw well, so take a look at Trine’s process here.
Until next month….stay creative.
