Most of us want to be involved with some sort of hobby, some sort of distraction from the “real world”. Yet so many of us don’t seem to indulge ourselves with such activities largely due to the distractions of the very thing we are trying to get away from….the real world. Ask anyone you know and they will tell you that they don’t have time for a hobby, they are not talented enough to do this or do to that. The reasons or excuses (depending on the way you look at it) are endless. We came across the photography of Carley Laney from Jackson, Mississippi who didn’t let any excuses get in her way She is a busy 34 year old mom who took up photography in January of this year after buying a “good” camera”, as she puts it. Carley hasn’t taken years of classes nor did she make a big investment in a camera. She simply takes her camera everywhere she goes and as a result has taken some incredible shots. We will be highlighting some of Carley’s work on our website over the next few months.
What Carley Laney’s story should teach everyone is there are outdoor pursuits just waiting for us to enjoy that are neither difficult, too time consuming, or expensive. If we don’t enjoy the outdoors, we simply do not have anyone to blame but ourselves.
