I started a new project on Friday, recording 100 days of gratitude with iphone photos. I am only three days in, but I am finding it is helping me focus on the small things that bring a smile to my face…..like springtime flowers.
Peter and I were able to make a morning trip to the Huntington Gardens this past weekend. The rose garden was in bloom, and they had just finished their morning watering routine, so many of them were covered in droplets.
I found as I got into the swing of things I began to get more picky about which flowers I would photograph, and then I remembered to try to just appreciate being there. It is interesting how easy it is to lose the special moment in the pursuit of achievement.
