I was feeling a little blue, not sure why…just one of those days. Maybe I’m a little down because I miss my family…the family that moved off to Idaho…and Utah. I’m still here in California. Not that it’s a bad thing to be in California, I just miss them.
I don’t know what made me do it but I grabbed my camera on the way out the door this afternoon. I can’t really explain the feeling of having a camera in my hand. It just feels good. It feels right.
I’ve haver taken a photography class but I’ve always wanted to. Maybe if I took a class it would be easier to capture my world through phototgraphs…easier to tell the story of my life from behind a camera lens.
I was waiting to pick up Izabelle from school and started taking photos. The first one of myself in mirror on my car…
Then I snapped a photo of Izabelle as she was getting in car. Then I noticed a tree behind her. A beautiful burnt orange tree. Gorgeous.
I love Autumn.
Suddenly I was feeling better. I had a half of an hour before it was time to pick up Parker from school. I took my time driving there, pulling over on the side of the road whenever it felt right…snapping photos.
I love to close my eyes and feel the breeze, gentle, cool, calming, the sun shining on my face. As my eyes are closed, I listen to the sound of the wind blowing through the trees. I feel peace. I feel blessed. I feel grateful for the beauty that surrounds me.
I love Autumn.
