It’s amazing how looking through the lens of a new camera can give you a fresh perspective on life.
For example, I’m pretty sure that I don’t give my trash can enough credit for being as bright and cheery as it is.
It almost makes me want to write a post entitled Ode to Trashcan. Well, almost. But not quite…
And the red berries I pass every Sunday on my afternoon walk through the woods with Nate are so often over-looked.
And my little, yellow car….
Oh, who am I kidding? I couldn’t over-look that thing even if I wanted to.
It’s amazing how we overlook so much color and beauty during the course of our day, mainly because it’s the familiar or the mundane… or maybe we’re just too busy to open our eyes.
Maybe we’re too busy to process… and see… and enjoy. Too busy to ‘tiptoe through the tulips’ and actually notice them.
Too busy to sit down a moment and reflect. (To be completely honest, in this pic, I’m reflecting on how bad my sister’s cat Humphrey’s breath really is. But, hey, at least I’m reflecting).
It’s funny what a new camera can teach a person.
Life sure is beautiful!
What’s one beautiful thing that you noticed today, when you could have over-looked it?
