Mindfulness Challenge Week 15: Awareness

Art Everywhere

There is potential for art in so many places.

In the winter months (and in Northern New Brunswick, it still looks very winter-y outside my window!), I find this most challenging.  Gardens and beaches and backyards are my go-to for photography.  While there are plenty of beautiful possibilities in the snow, I much prefer the opportunities brought by warmer weather.

Indoor photography is a great place to practice awareness.  It is a challenge to notice the tiny details of daily life, to appreciate the the normally overlooked compositions in the home.

This silver paperclip stood out from the rest, catching a glint of light coming through the window.

Art is everywhere.

Little Circles of Light

I love bokeh.

Here, amber and gold glitter in the background of the frosted grass. From far, this part of my yard is a mess of weeds and unsuccessful vegetables. Up close, it is a landscape of endless photo possibilities.

With my camera in the general direction of the sun, I was able to capture these pretty little circles of light.
