Photo-Heart Connection ~ January 2013


This little branch basking in the afternoon light kept catching my attention. I finally stopped what I was doing and went for my camera. What was it that attracted my attention? It's ordinary. It has no gorgeous blooms. It’s simple. There's my answer;  simplicity.

When looking for an image for Photo-Heart Connection with Kat Eye Studio, I kept returning to this one. It reminds me to look for beauty in ordinary things. It reminds me to spend moments of my day in stillness. It reminds me to be thankful for the simple things in life.
 
The goal of life: simple, but not empty.

  5. Don't you love it when you respond to something that is calling you to take a picture of it, and are rewarded with a beautiful shot. We should listen to ourselves more often :)
