Serene

Description

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

For this collection I wanted to create images that reflected the idea in Emerson’s quote. Leaving today’s troubles behind and waking up with a new positive perspective each day is a truly peaceful and healthy way to live. Often when we are troubled we have a hard time focusing and solving the issues at hand. By leaving the issue stagnant over night and awaking with a new positive outlook the next morning we are sure to find a smart solution much faster than if we were to stay up all night worrying.

I wanted the images to portray the serene freshness of the morning. I want my viewers to smell the crisp air and take in the audible renewal of the birds singing, children in the distance waiting on the bus, and feel the steam coming from their coffee.
