There are some prayers that I'm so glad God answered with a kind no. Like the time I was convinced that long red hair and violet eyes would transform me into a vision of loveliness. Wow. All I can think now is Thank You sweet merciful God!
However I wouldn't mind if God gave me super sonic secret powers. You know, seeing through walls, leaping buildings in a single bound, that kind of thing.
Sadly the closest thing I have to a super sonic secret power is that I'm a speed reader. *Nerd alert* It's not uncommon for me to fly through a 200-300 page novel between dinner and bedtime. There is a catch though, it has to be a fiction book. Non-fiction books are my kryptonite. With the very best of intentions I'll load up on non-fiction books on a trip to the library (I told you I was a nerd), and without fail I start them enthusiastically, only to have them migrate to the "donations" pile months later.
However I am very proud to say that I started AND finished a whole entire non-fiction book . Yes it had pictures, but the images were by a photographer so that's different (right?). One of my mentor's surprised me with a the book Wedding Photography From the Heart.
I read it from cover to cover and it was inspiring and visually stunning. If you are looking for inspiration as a photographer, or just enjoy beautiful imagery, I encourage you to grab a copy. You'll definitely finish it, whether you're a lover of non-fiction or not!
