Life isn’t about someday or yesterday. It isn’t about what could have been or what may someday be. It’s about today, right now, this very moment. It’s about falling in love with the world around us every day. For me, it’s about the way I see the world through my eyes . . .
As I watch this little guy flirting with me through the open sliding glass door, I can’t help but smile. I often feel as if he were sent to me as a special gift, something to make me stop what I am doing several times a day and just enjoy the moment.
When I take out my camera and see scenes like this one through my lens, the world goes silent around me. I no longer hear the distant sirens, heavy traffic, and Air Force jets over head. It’s as if someone took the sunshine from the sky and painted this beautiful mural for me.
When this stunning Northern Cardinal comes for a visit, he always catches my attention. He is a little bit camera shy though, and he has a habit of closing his eyes the very moment I take his picture.
How can I possibly spend even one second complaining about the rain when it leaves incredible shots like this for me? The tiny drops of rain gleaming on the petals sparkled like diamonds in the afternoon sunlight after the storm. I wish I could have captured it in this picture for you, but I did capture the memory in my heart. 🙂
My favorite White-winged Dove followed me on my excursion today. I have a feeling she just wanted to make sure I returned to the balcony to put fresh food out for her.
Some people see weeds when the dandelions begin to bloom.
I see summer.
