Persicaria Maculosa ~ I have no idea how to pronounce this plant, lol. But it was pretty ❤ 😊.
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!
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!
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 ❤.
Light, shadow, contrast, complimentary colors….
Beauty or Gratitude?
I was going to post something else today but I wanted to share my experience of this past weeks new daily series “Simple 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 the “under glow” of 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!
