Uplifting and Peaceful – two of my favorite April photo prompts from Capture Your 365! Life might not always be peaceful, joyful, stress free or picture-perfect, but there are certain places that immediately get me to take a deep breath and get centered. My church is one of those places, and Balboa Park is the other.

Where do you go when you need to be uplifted or to find peace? I’d love to hear and see your images!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Live creatively!

PS. The quote in the book of the statue reads as follows:

Humbly we bend before the Lord of Light, and pray at early dawn, that this Sweet love may all our sin forgive, and make our miseries cease; may grant us health, and grant us the gift divine of everlasting peace.” – Pope Gregory I

  1. I love the flower. I need to get outside and try to take that type of photo. I shoot with a Canon 40D. My lighting is never right. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. What inspires me is? These days Pinterest, but I want to draw my inspiration from outside.


    • Thanks so much Kymona! Yes, gotta make time for your photography! I’m a huge fan of Katrina Kennedy’s (free!) daily prompts – even if I don’t photograph daily, it’s nice to conceptualize what I would do for the prompt 🙂 Keeps those creative juices flowing even if I don’t pick up my camera! Thanks for stopping by! PS I love Pinterest too and will search for inspiration there too!


  2. As always…very, very beautiful! The photo of the flower is stunning! Have a wonderful week-end … it looks like it’s going to be another great one! 🙂
