A friend of mine from France, Helene Pambrun started a new blog recently called GIVE ME PASSION and when she told me about it I immediately thought “WOW! what a great idea” See, her blog is all about PASSION. Passion in everyday life. In love. In your work. Whatever one is passionate about. We as individuals each have different things that tug at our heart. We each have our “thing” that we love deeply and the things that we are truly passionate about. Helene has taken this and made a blog out of it where she interviews people in all walks of life about their passion. I applaud her. Her blog is in French but if you use Google Chrome for your web browser you can translate to English with a click of the mouse.
Passion is something I have loads of and even through the rough and rocky days I sometimes come across I always try to remember the things in life I love. My #1 passion is the love for my family and freinds and right next to that is photography. With my passion for it so strong it doesn’t even matter how good I am at it. I may not be the best photographer in the world but it doesn’t matter because I have a true passion for it. It makes me happy. It satisfies me. I love it. I have a passion for cameras, lenses, and taking pictures of just about anything. Taking an ordinary scene and making it look interesting by use of a certain lens or angle. It is that passion for photography and Leica cameras that got me to start this blog almost 2 years ago and now this blog is also one of my passions.
Everyone walking on this earth should be passionate about something and I think that deep down we all are. Some have a passion for collector cars, some love boating, some are into golf, some love sports or the arts. If you have a passion in life, a passion to live life to the fullest than your life can’t possibly be boring. The next time you hit a rough patch in life get out and do something you are passionate about and it will be sure to lift your spirits. What IS your passion?
Passion can also motivate us. I use the passion of all of you reading this on a daily basis for the “Daily Inspiration” and sometimes those pics inspire us all to get out there and shoot or try new things with our photography.
Helene sent me some questions to answer for her blog so I will be writing about my passions for her site 🙂 I know the readers of this website are all crazy passionate about cameras and photography and this is what I want to keep going with. This is not just another “review” site as it is run by someone (me) who is truly passionate, and I love what I am doing. I did not start this site for money or fame, just to share my passion with the world. Be sure to check out GIVE ME PASSION and keep your passion alive in whatever it is you do or love!
