Late Spring 2020, I began taking photos and shooting short videos in response to rolling bouts of extreme anxiety. It didn’t take long for me to discover that closely observing nature was the best way to calm my frazzled, distressed brain. Week after week, for over a year, I kept up the practice, occasionally sharing some of the images via social media.
The other day I decided to dump a bunch of my favourite moments from that experiment into iMovie and wound up with sixteen minutes of what I call “everyday magic.” Nearly all the photos and clips were shot at or within walking distance of my home. I haven’t added any music to the reel but the videos contain some interesting sounds, so if that interests you, please put in some ear buds and have a listen. I hope this brings you a few minutes of beauty and reflection. Wishing you peace and magic, always. – Ami
