Story Behind Foto: a few days ago I joined my boyfriend on one of his weekly fishing trips. Okay, in reality I decided to be a good girlfriend by joining him on his number one hobby. As he was fishing I was taking sunset foto’s and taking in the scenery. Now I understand why he does this so often, it is peacefully quiet out there!

Here’s one of my favorite foto’s from that evening; I took it as we were leaving. Isn’t it lovely?! I think so.

Thanks for your visit,

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.
