I went to bed early last night, and woke up early this morning. I need to do that more often.
Who knew that dew could glisten with shades of violet and emerald?
Tidbits of life, in words and images. A compilation of bloggers’ perspectives, from around the internet.
Personally, I find documentary-style still life images a challenge. Why is an apple on a table in a sunbeam beautiful? Or a discarded sweater on the back of a sofa so poignant? Dirty toes after weeding the garden, the light filtering through the blinds, a dandelion’s shadow…
Habit Blog makes me slow down a little bit, and reminds me that everyone is always going through something, often life is an emotional roller coaster, and there is beauty in the everyday.
Some Canadian indie-folk for you this lovely Monday morning. It’s both catchy, and full of emotion – you can’t go wrong with that combination.
This is from an EP; I’m looking forward to hearing more when they eventually release a full album.
The day was muggy, buggy and drizzly, but with restless kids, that didn’t stop us from getting on our bikes and heading out for a quick geocaching misssion.
After a quick snack at a saskatoon bush, our last cache had us arriving at the river’s edge, with still water, a flat white light, and some overhanging branches creating the perfect little hideout.
Look at how shiny! I have no idea what they are (some kind of a hoverfly maybe?), but I loved watching them do their little mating dance in the garden.
So far I’ve seen a few different versions, all metallic – green, orangey-yellow, and fiery red.
I’m slowly learning the patience needed for macro photography; hopefully the skill will follow.
Although I think what I need more is to build up my hand strength – good grief that lens is heavy, for real!
