Sometimes it can feel like no one’s watching what you are doing. But I’ve been reminded by Austin Leon, to keep sharing and continually improve myself. Recently, however I have hit a gold mine, and a lot of my photos have been shared and featured in Instagram. Whilst I take the photos for myself, to inspire myself, and because honestly, I just can’t help myself, it is nice to be recognised.
Australians are notorious for not sharing when they receive recognition because we have a culture of cutting down tall poppies and making sure people don’t get “a big ego”. I’d like to encourage everyone to do the opposite. Share your joys and your highlights, the right people will be there to cheer you on 🙂
If you’re on Instagram, I’d love to see your photos 🙂
Recently the Brisbane Open House featured my photo from last year’s competition as their Facebook Page photo. The photo was taken from inside the caretaker’s house in the bridge. We took a tour of the bridge as a part of the Open House weekend. It was great fun, and I look forward to submitting my application for further tours this year.
