Simple Beauty Day 20

Sweetpeas, my favorite tree, a visiting neighbor cat and black eyed Susan’s. I searched everywhere for the name of the small flowers in the bottom corner, just couldn’t find it… Do you know its name?

Simple Beauty Day 10

Coneflowers, bittersweet nightshade and the green underglow of leaves.

Simple Beauty Day 9

The middle and bottom left were the pictures I wanted to share in Simple Beauty Day 7, but it works for today’s post because now I can share it’s growth over the past few days. The smaller ones were gone so someone must have harvested them, but I thought they looked cute all bunched together ❤. I tried to identify them but could only come up with the bigger ones being amanitas.

Light, shadow, contrast, complimentary colors….

5 Days of Simplicity

 Beauty or Gratitude? 

I was going to post something else today but I wanted to share my experience of this past weeks new daily seriesSimple Beauty.” I was also itching to share some of the other pics I took each day. 

 

Can you see what the sun’s rays in the top left picture form? ❤ I couldn’t believe it!

During this nature walk, I was particularly drawn to what I call theunder glowof leaves. That and the way light moved across and through the environment. 


Each time I took part of the day to find something beautiful, I did. In the top left leaf here, you can see another heart that was possibly made by a bug 😉 . 

My trip to the lake was immersed in the curiosity of the wind and water’s movements…(I think this is my favorite picture of Odin too 😉 ).

The remaining pictures from yesterday and today’s walk were also begging to have their debut. Light, color, shadow and composition… are truly fun to capture.

 

I was nervous at the creation of this new series, scared to commit to something fun, scared to commit to myself, and I think scared of not be able to find beauty in each day… But what is beauty really? An appreciation of something, gratitude towards something perhaps? All I know is that since I’ve made a commitment each day I find myself smiling more, laughing more, creating more, and overall taking notice of each passing minute in my life. These little moments each day have opened up a lot more than just my senses… and for that I am GRATEFUL ❤ !

 

Next week’s post will be about one the affects the daily prompts have had on me. If you want an idea of what it will be about check out a previous post from 2015, Artist Date Turned Project. See you soon!

I love early mornings and evenings before dusk. They always have the best lighting to emphasize your focus….
