Why is it sometimes so god damn hard to take a photo?
The other day I was outside, trying my hardest to do justice to this @ministryofcloudswines Shiraz that I’d cracked the night before to no avail!
The creativity was blocked.
Nothing was working. So I said “fuck it”, gave up, sat down under the fig tree, and drank the wine.
The view was a beaut, I’d say... and next minute my brain kicked into a more relaxed gear, and I smashed out some painting for the next two hours!
Moral of the story: Sometimes we need to put a little less pressure on ourselves to get “the perfect shot”, and just enjoy the damn moment - the cracking gem red hue of that Shiraz against a clear blue cloudless (ha) sky, and the simple acknowledgement - This wine tastes good and I am content in this moment. 🙏🏽
[Side note: I bloody love the wines @ministryofcloudswines create, but rarely associate them with something as ‘simple’ as a Shiraz, but it’s a modern, clean cut and peppery version - their Grenache in some form or another is sure to pop up here before long!]
