近日看到一篇文章说到每天拍一张照片与朋友分享,能够增加你的幸福指数,我十分同意这个观点,因为通常拍摄和户外活动连在一起,比如步行和观察,因此每日一图成为了自我调整,锻炼身体的好机会,把日常生活变得更有乐趣,有目标,提高自己的信心和满足感,对此我深有体会,已经坚持了七个月的每日一图,深感其中的乐趣,对周围的环境更用心的去观察,包括大自然中的一草一木,天气,人文,新闻,艺术等等,拍摄技术也在渐渐提升,经常思考着用不同手法去展现, 这是一个很好的体验,你也可以去做,用手机记录身边的事,身边的景,从中得到快乐!

Listening to the music quietly, while doing the things that l love, that is the greatest enjoyment to me.
