I very much enjoy taking pictures of flowers, I easily loose track of time or that I am hungry, today it was a pounding headache that stopped me from taking more shots 🙂 It was a “please feed me NOW, I am hungry.” kinda headache LOL!
Part of adjusting to a new environment is practicing the art of observing without talking too much (talking too much means one is not listening enough, no one likes a know it all) I find that taking shots of flowers is the perfect way to practice quietly observing one situation with as many different perspectives as possible, that’s why I can take 10 mins or more on just one flower trying to get that one shot that makes me happy.
I am thankful for Spring, anytime I need to practice the art of silence I just have to step outside and observe nature around me, looking for the little things that not many people will notice. Today I was practicing taking shots of small wild white flowers and editing them. I am not completely happy with the shots but in time I will get the hang of it.
