Week of Reflections

“All of Nature is Cosmic”

In need of some respite early in the week, my mother suggested that we visit “our spot”, which we hadn’t been to in awhile.

The lake was full of so much life. My mother spotted a purple dragonfly with a blue butt. ❤ All of the lotus flowers on the lake were in full bloom. We watched a large family of 20+ geese. I wasn’t able to get a good picture of the fish, but we had fun watching them as well.

After our visit to “our lake” I left a heart behind for others to find.

Later in the week, I gained some inspiration from my boyfriend’s space game 😊 and created the featured picture “All of Nature is Cosmic” and did a few different renditions. I think us watching shows about stars also helped too. Lol 🌌☀

A New Week Ahead

I’m allowing myself to be easy with my posts as I get my “writing legs” 😉 back. It’s been along time since I’ve posted regularly and I want to have fun posting again. This upcoming week I’m planning on working on a nature portrait or two. Here’s to a new week 😁, I hope you all have a wonderful one ❤!

Playing in the Fog

11-30-18

This winter in Michigan has been pretty different from previous years. We started off with a later snowfall and shortly after it has since melted away, which has made for a lot of foggy days.  Luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to capture the mysterious winter fog on two of my days off <3.

On this particular day I had to get work done on my car, on my way back I saw this scene and quickly ran home to pickup my camera. This inspiring moment lead me to a spontaneous long adventure of aimlessly exploring the back roads. When I stopped on the quiet roads, I made sure to put on my car’s hazard lights, just in case.

I was captivated by the sight of this fog. Looking deeper into the reason behind its allurement I came to an interesting discovery. Fog hides what can normally be seen and shows something that normally is not seen, water in a sort of gaseous state.  No longer a liquid(rain) or a solid (snowflake), but suspended in-between the heavens and the earth. There is still a mystery to it though, that I still can’t define…

As the fog lifted I continued my three hour adventure and ended it peacefully at the “John Wilson Park” in Athens ❤ where I left my  snow hearts trademark.

I won’t go into too much detail about this day other than hearing the rain lightly fall was breath taking! That and I really learned a lot about my camera’s lighting settings.

Do you ever have moments when you feel one with your surroundings? I tend to get little “messages” from nature when I connect to these places in time….

 

When I was taking pictures, I happened to gaze on something in between the double paned glass. I laughed when my focus came upon a water droplet that had dried in the shape of a heart ❤ Wow!

 

 

Short Break

With the holidays quickly approaching , I have decided to take a short break and will begin again on the 3rd of January. May you all have a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year! ^_^ ❤

Simple Beauty Day 31

Grateful of another refreshing day, a red clover plie’s (pled-ays) in the summer rain. ❤

*I can’t believe I’ve been posting everyday for a month now! I was debating on ending this series but after today’s picture, I feel renewed again 😉. So, I think I’ll continue this for another month! Yay! 💞 See you all tomorrow!

Simple Beauty Day 28

I was given the opportunity to take pictures at my brother’s wedding. I had a great time and learned a lot. Before the wedding I went around and shot my sister in law’s amazing work of her decorations ❤.

Simple Beauty Day 27


Today I got the chance to be a kid again and play with my nieces. ❤ Such a wonderful thing ❤ ❤ ❤ .

 

Simple Beauty Day 26

I came across a few poke berry bushes and the yellow flowers. I’m not sure what they are called though, some of the plants I take pictures of can’t be identified through the PlantSnap app.

After I took pictures of the poke berry bushes I saw this little guy hanging out on a leaf. ❤ today turned out to be a good day!

Simple Beauty Day 12

Today I went to a free event and kayaked up a river. Afterwards I stopped to take a few pictures of downtown Battle Creek. One of the pictures turned our really grainy on my phone so I added it to my PICSART app and made it look more like a painting. Such a wonderful day… really ❤.

Simple Beauty Day 11

The day’s beautiful things.

(Do you see the heart 😉💖.)

We saw the cranes in a different spot, but had to share! See you tomorrow!
