Cheesy grin

All I had to do was ask.

This guy was completely ignoring me until I asked for just one smile. Just one. This is what he gave me. Lol

Reading between the lines

Everything counts - fall 2017

Reading between the lines, to me, does not mean seeking alternate motives between the obvious.  Here, in this photo, reading between the lines is having a chance to notice the beauty in every layer.  The leaves are nice, the trees are strong, but there are a million little motions and intentions at play in a single moment in time.  I have no idea what is behind each of these things, but I can stop, capture and lose myself in the loveliness of the everything.

Everything counts.  Everything.

 

Perspective – change the way you see the world

Fall 2017 Skies and Trees

Can it get any better?  Sometimes if you just shift your perspective every so slightly, you end up not only seeing the lovely fall colours, but also the sky above.  It might not be as lovely as the trees, but without it, they could not exist and our eyes would not see the colours in the spectrum raining down from above.  🙂

Love life.  That’s all that really counts in the end.

Simplicity of life

Sometimes, I try to stop and find the most simple thing I can and then lose myself in it…the beauty of it without all the complicated mess of camera settings and shutter speeds.  I just hold the camera to my eye and let it do it’s job without my interference.  The photos don’t always turn out perfect, but in that itself…the kinda do.

One single moment in time, captured and shared.  This is why I love what I do here.

We fly as One

I’m not sure if this happens everywhere – I suppose it does, if this species of bird is indigenous to the area you live in…or maybe birds do this everywhere and I’ve just never captured it until now.

It’s a single thought – One bird (who knows which one) seems to be making a decision for the entire flock to fly in a particular direction and they all go as one.  Great masses of these birds will black out the sky – all flying in the same zig-zag patterns like they’re performing some sort of new Olympic sport.  It’s spell binding to watch.

I wonder if humans act this way and we don’t even know it.  From above, I can only imagine this is what we look like as we traverse from home to work through busy city centres.  Only, we stop for a 7$ coffee along the way.

 

Sky, sky, Snake

I’ll post the sky/tree shots first so those of you who dislike snakes (tiny, cute ones) can skip the last shot.  🙂

And now for the adorable little snake family hiding in the leaves.  These guys are harmless and are so tiny, you are lucky to actually see one.  They move fast too; however, it’s always AWAY from you so I’m all good with them. 🙂
