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.

Hi all, it’s Cristy here! On a second attempt at Foto Friday. Lets hope I do as good a job as Miss Catalina. 🙂

Story behind foto: About two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for five days and during my stay I went foto crazy! It is such a gorgeous place with some amazing views and I thought I’d share one with you all today. I took this foto from inside the pool at the resort (I know, risky taking a camera in water). I love this foto, because it captures the beauty of the ocean water and I think that the palm tree adds character to the background. In the picture you can also see the rain clouds clearing up. You see, it had just rained before I took this foto, but it was so hot and humid that I didn’t leave the pool because the fresh rain felt so great.

I hope that you enjoy this foto as much as I do.
