Inducing Happiness

Aren't these cheery flowers? I feel so happy when I look at them. I took this photograph at the United States Botanic Gardens near the U.S. Capitol several years ago. Now, it happily hangs on my wall in my apartment.

While we often photograph subjects that inspire us or intrigue us or even sadden us, we should also take photos of things that just make us happy. Those happiness-inducing images could be of people we love, but it could also be places or things that bring us joy as well. Yesterday on my way to work, I saw the most beautiful sunrise and it filled my heart with great joy. I'm still kicking myself that I did not have my camera with me to capture it for later viewings.
