Fate : Photo 101Rehab


Whenever I stare in awe at the beauty of the golden hour, I am grateful for my life.

I will perceive my ‘problems’, as temporary inconveniences, and will remind myself that life is not to be judged as fair or unfair.

As simple as it is, I will remember the statement by Coach Lou Holtz.

“Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. “

I wish you a beautiful day!


I am posting for Silver Threading Event, Writer’s Quote Wednesday. If you love quotes, it is the place to be. 


I am also posting for the Photo101 Rehab, the event for everyone who loves photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious , anyone is welcome), and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with.

Want to know how to join? Check below.

Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

  1. What a great quote Lucile. I must agree with you. How we react to situations is entirely up to us. Lovely photo also! Breathtaking light! ❤

  2. Wonderful quote beautifully presented. And that picture. Am having total photo envy. I managed to get myself up at the golden hour this morning but none of my photos look like that. I will try again tomorrow as I am determined to get an Early Bird shot that compares.


    1. Lisa, it’s ok to have photo envy! We are even now. lol
      This photo was taken in Porto, Portugal. The view is indeed special.
      I’m sure your shots will be stunning! Looking forward to seeing them!
      Take care, my dear!
      Thank you so much!

  3. Lucile honey I think this is one of my favorite of all of your photos. It is perfection – composition, colour, light, all those technical things but above all it just feels so serene and perfect. It’s breathtaking.


  4. Love the photo and I even had a look at the Photo Rehab – TheClinic, interesting!
    I love photography and I always look for new ways of interpreting the reality:)
    But the Quote is very inspiring and very true:)


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
