Shutter Click & Chat 2/01

Everyday in a different way...


Today I did something I often do subconsciously but seldom do deliberately; I altered my perception. I took this shot of a pruned shrub whilst lying on my back in the sun. Rather than standing over it or alongside, I got down in the dirt, I got right into the root of it.



I'm in a place now where I am working out kinks; pruning if you will and, mapping out a healthy direction for growth. This shot was spot on with where I am at this moment, a little rough in places, fragile in others but looking forward to blue skies.


Next week: 2/08 Broken

Show me something broken, a heart, a finger nail, a bottle, a plate...anything broken will do.

Have a fabulous week!
Peace

We both are looking up today. Your words make yours all the better.

I understand...it definitely alters your perception. I stopped when my children grew up and then found myself lying on the grass playing with my grandson, looking up. Hope the rest of your week is always, "looking up". xo

I'm loving it! Looking to the skies is always better than burying one's face in the dirt =)

I love your analogy here. I think I am in the same place....same process. It's not easy.

It is a time to start anew and a fresh isn't it. No place better than to begin at the beginning.

Beautiful. Just another bullet point in the already-proven statement that we are one with the Universe. Thanks for sharing!
