As the Christmas holiday draws near, I simply want to extend to all of you:
Hope Santa gets you all exactly what you wish for!
May you have the best holiday season yet!
Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!
We are having a wonderful taste of Spring today!
I decided to puddle-jump instead of be grouchy with all the standing water from melting snow – after all, clothes and body can be washed and dried – why not have some fun and adventure? (yeah, even if I look a little stupid doing it!)
My cardinal friend just kind of sat there and watched me…
probably wondering why I just didn’t take off!
Spent a little time this weekend with my favorite fine feathered friend!
I hadn’t seen him for a while.
Must have had something to do with the weather, what with all the wind and snow and super-cold temps!
Anyway, he chirps until I spot him, then he comes out and poses for me.
and then the next day:
AHHHH!! Fresh air & sunshine!
Every morning I go outside (mostly at the loud urging of my assistant) and one of the first things I do is put down seed for the birds.
And every morning, Mr. Cardinal chirps his greeting to me (how nice!)
…either that or he’s asking me what the heck took me so long to get his food to him.
…or he’s telling me that he sees Louden lurking around and he’s not a fan.
When I replied to him (what? I don’t talk to birds!)
What I meant to say was:
When I listened to his song, it occurred to me that Mr. Cardinal and I have spent some quality time together and, after searching through my photographs, I found that I have in fact chronicled our year together:
Know what else?
It also means that I have completed a Photowalk idea off my list, and I didnt’ even realize it until today!
“follow one subject (ex: tree) throughout the year and photograph it in each season”
Thanks Mr. Cardinal!
Because of this realization and in the spirit of the new year, I’m making a serious effort to be more aware of my artistic goals and ideas; take them more seriously; and improve upon them when I can.
Goals are good!
As I went to step out the back door (camera in hand!!) I thought “Hey, Universe, show me something beautiful, huh?”
And the Universe replied:
And I’ll serve them with a side of bokeh!
Well played, Universe. Well played!
