Through My Camera Lens
Hiding and ignoring makes me blind to what I can see-truly see. I look out windows, I glance at my surroundings while picking up my mail or newspaper, taking for granted the nature that embraces me each day whether the weather is comfortable or not. Each morning I journal and I end my entry with what I am grateful for that day. It resets my attitude-makes me focus on good things.
Yesterday I went outside and took my camera and once again, looking at nature through the lens lends pause to my day and several grateful thoughts. I'm suspended by the moment while capturing nature. I fiddled with settings, trying to catch that butterfly in flight-unsuccessfully I might add.
While crouched completely focused on the butterfly, I glanced to my right. Although I'm not a fan of spiders, I can appreciate their beauty. How lucky was I to see this spider and his web and an unfortunate butterfly for his meal. He was the perfect subject not once moving while I refocused and collected a moment of loveliness. All because I opened my eyes to see through my camera lens.
Have a lovely weekend, friends!!
