“Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life”
– Pablo Picasso
Getting out and shooting in nature is like a form of meditation to me. Macro Photography allows me to look at the details in the small beauties of the world around me & I find I get completely absorbed in it. It allows me to quiet my mind and appreciate the little things & the commonplace, & to fall in love with the world over and over again.
I like this quote “Select your thoughts like you select your clothes every day”. It reminds me to foster an attitude of gratitude & I find I can change a grumpy morning into a happy day with a little positive reflection.
Looking at these summer flowers with their petals spread to embrace the sun, sparkling with dew & blazing their colours brightly to invite bees to come & spread new life for them helps me count the many blessings I have in my life and feel rejuvenated to re-enter the fray.
These are just little iPhone snaps, because the best camera is the one you have with you at the time!
However you find your happy place or take a little time for your soul. It’s a great gift and I wish your dust of everyday life swept clean for another day’s adventures.
