Story Behind Foto: I believe there is beauty all around us; we just need to slow down and look closer to appreciate it.

Recently I had a conversation with my mother about photography and how much I enjoy taking foto’s. During our conversation, she mentioned that one of her friend’s and her had a similar conversation a few days prior. Her friends mentioned one of her hobbies is driving to coast and watching the sunset on the beach. My mother wondered why – why did her friend enjoy watching the sunset, why drive to see that, what was the big deal?

When I heard this come out of my mother’s mouth, I was surprise. My thoughts were, “duh, it’s gorgeous!”

She did not get it and I wondered why.

Now thinking about it, I wonder why it is that mom did not get such a simple concept. Is it that throughout her life she has had to live life without taking the time to slow down and appreciate the little things, or, is that currently there are other life issues running through her mind that are fogging up the ability to “smell the roses?”

Eventually I explained to her that watching the sunset is beautiful because of the multiple colors in the sky, and it is a tranquil setting by the beach. She got the point.

So, let this be a reminder for you to take time to appreciate the beauty around you whether it is a gorgeous sunset, a lonely flower growing in the middle a sidewalk, or the sweet smile of your significant other. Whichever it is, take time to appreciate that moment in time because you never know what tomorrow may bring.

Meelah would like to wish you all a very happy Halloween and share her bee costume.

In case you missed my previous Meelah post, she is my fur baby and we love her very much.

Here’s the story behind the costume.

The first time I tried to put on the costume she ran away before I was able to fasten the second strap. She ran around with half of it on it looked like she had a black and yellow cape. Kitty-superhero to the rescue! Get it?

On the second try I succeeded and she wore her costume for a few minutes. As you can see we caught her while in the kitchen where she froze in place as if she did not know what to do.  She just stood still and would not move it was actually pretty funny.

After I took off her costume she hid for about 30 minutes or so, I felt bad because that means she was upset.

All is well now and we are thinking of another costumer for her to wear on Thanksgiving… I will share it if we find a cute one.

Well, hope you all have a safe Halloween!

Story behind Foto: Where I live it finally started to feel like fall or autumn, we had rain and leaves are starting to cover the ground. After the rain lifted, earlier this week, something inside of me could not wait to go outside, during a break at work, and take foto’s. Here you have a mosaic of various shades of fall, all within one frame.

The change in season has really inspired me and I hope you check back to see what I create.

Enjoy, CAT

This week I have been feeling a little blue, maybe it is the change in weather or because I am getting over a cold, who knows!

I saw this post by Bucket List Publications and I had to share it with you. I loved the quote and I find it to be true, laughter makes me feel better and definitely puts me in a better mood. Do you tend to agree? So, when in doubt, “find a reason to laugh…”

Hope you enjoy, CAT
