Hope Harris Photography


I’m heading out for the weekend, so I’ll leave you with the touching photography of Hope Harris, referred to me by Maryam (Thanks, M!). From cats to gorgeous pink blooms, there’s a certain sensitivity behind the lens that comes through in each image. I can tell that Hope sees beyond the surface, which is why her photographs stir such emotion. Hope captivates the honesty and down-to-earth beauty that I find so attractive in the natural world around me. A flower doesn’t consider what it will wear. A bird doesn’t gaze into a mirror to check that it’s feathers are in order. This is the raw beauty that draws so many of us in because outside of nature, only children seem to have this endearing quality for a limited time. We all grow up, primp, gaze, and worry about wrinkles and butt size. We buy expensive shoes and hope someone notices them. Nature never worries, and to me, that is why a fallen petal or the fluttering wings of a hummingbird delights. It’s genuine. It’s real. Unedited. Unplanned. Now that is a thing of beauty.

I fell in love with this kitty image, a Scottish Fold, my favorite breed. Here are a few additional beauties from the talented Ms. Harris. All photographs can be purchased on her website.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

    I absolutely love Hope’s work. It’s so touching. So much talent. And she is the most lovely person, too. Don’t you just love that?!

    That cat is something else, it almost looks like it is ready to cry. I sat here looking at it for several minutes, it has the face of a child. Or an angel.

    Oh, I have to say – we love Scottish Folds, too. Remmy can’t be told, of course (but as we adore and love him, that shouldn’t be a problem).
