During my little photo-walk around Island Lake on Saturday morning, I was grateful for the hindsight in bringing along my macro lens. I had started out with my trusty 50mm, snapping shots of scenery, boats, birds … but then I slapped on the macro and changed my perspective. I started taking in the little things.
It’s good to stop and figuratively smell the roses.
Or in this case, the berries :)
Our prompt this week for focus52 is ‘thankful’ and although I took this photo last week (isn’t that always the way?) I am thankful for these moments when I can slow down and look at the beauty around me.
We should all do more of that.
This post is a portion of my focus52 project, hosted right here at twoscoopz! Visit or join the focus52 flickr group here. My own focus52 project can be found on flickr here or by clicking ‘my f52′ in the category list to the right.
