Photo of the Day | Little Things

In my every day comings and goings, I find that I tend to focus on the big picture (with my habit of multitaskinating it’s often a necessity). But there’s something about having my camera in hand that makes me stop and notice the little things. I often use a wide aperture when shooting, bringing my subject into focus and letting everything else in the world fall away into a soft blur. I saw this little guy on one of our adventures this weekend and found myself completely distracted by his hovering overhead. I followed the him (instead of the fencing match I should have been watching) determined to document his flight before he zoomed away.

I challenge you today to simply pause. If only for a moment, let everything else fall out of focus and cherish your small joy before it flits away 🙂

Half the joy of life is in little things taken on the run... but let us keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us.
