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!

Crystalized Morning

 

Last week I woke up to find a thick frost on the windshield of my car. Since I didn’t have to go to work and I had not yet captured pictures in this type of environment, I decided to get my camera. I found the outlining of leaves, the glistening grass waking up to the sunrise, and the glittering garden to be intriguing. I even had someone greet me and give me the warmth of company for awhile. By the time I was done playing with my camera and nature, the frost had given way to the suns heat. While walking back, I remembered the small heart shaped plant halfway through my little adventure. This was by far another magical moment I’m glad I didn’t miss ~ ❤ ^_^ . See you next week! I hope you enjoy the video of my morning ❤ .

 

 

 

Monday Moments: Shimmering Stone

There are moments when everyday objects reveal their true self.

If you catch them, stay in that moment till they return to the secret life they live.

This shimmering gold dust is just cement basking in the glow of dusk.

From a distance I thought the glowing red I saw were leaves that had changed color. When I got closer I knew I found my muse…

(This is why going to arboretums is nice, I don’t have to try and identify my subjects from a book or Google, lol.)
