Contemplative Photography: #Daily Contemplations


Maria creates a #Daily Contemplations image each day on Instagram.


It began as a way to support her own mental health and wellbeing and has now, over a year later, become part of her morning contemplative practice.


Each morning, she reads from a variety of inspirational and spiritual sources, which then lead her thoughts and wonderings to create an image with words to ponder on for the day.


All photos are taken from her camera roll from places she has visited.
