    April 3, 2017 admin

    I believe photography can be good for your mental health.  My journey to using it was last year, after buying a camera, my hubby and I decided to embark on an experiment – it was to take 1,000 photos over a one month period to see what we would take and what caught our eye.  It was an exciting and eye-opening task and one which I am going to repeat once I get my new camera!   What lessons did…
