I am Ms. Details. Â Everyone who knows me personally would describe me as such. Â I am always looking up noticing the things high above, or the tiny things many people don’t give a second thought to. Â I am meticulous about how I work and the things I create and do. Â I think of million little things at all once and these things make me happy. Â I love how detailed life is and the complexity of it all. Â Equally, I love the world and all it’s intricacies and am constantly astounded by the magnitude of creation and how it all works perfectly together like a most magical orchestration. Â And this is what inspired me this week. Â As the summer begins to pass and the landscape is about to die and become dormant before my eyes, I want to remember all the amazing beauty that surrounds us in the summer. Â The color, the sounds, the smells. Â Sigh.
My neighborhood is an amazing place prolific with very mature trees that canopy over the houses and streets in the summer. Â In my back yard, two large oaks, a birch, and an ash tower high above and give wonderful shade yet let the loveliest light trickle through. And our patio, there is full sun for several hours each day. Â Recently, I took a blanket and just rested with my eyes towards the sky enjoying the warmth and the gentle rustle of leaves above. Â It then struck me how wonderful the leaves looked and I decided to take a picture. Â So half of this image below is my perspective from the ground toward the sky.
I had a great time turning it into something else. Â When I’m able to create just for myself and do what inspires me–this is when I remember why I love photography so much and in this instance, how digital can be so fun. Â I hope you like it. =)
