Beauty on my way

Noticing and slowly taking in all the beauty of spring.

Last Sunday, I had a long walk around the neighbourhood, 5000 steps! I spotted this rose bush on my way.

The poppies are gorgeous in a park close by.

During the week I walked by a path of gorgeous peonies. I wish I could put their fragrance in a bottle and bring it home.

And yesterday, at lunch time, I was surprised with the beauty of these alliums in the university campus.

Buddha

Wishing a great week to you, and remember to slow down and enjoy a little bit of beauty on your way. It can be the beauty of the flowers if you are in spring or the beauty of the leaves if you are in the autumn. It can be a beauty of a smile, a hug, eye contact with a strange coming in your direction or a simple thank you when you weren’t expecting it.

FOTD – Bouquets

Festival of flowers at the grocery store. So pretty, I couldn’t resist and take this pic. It wasn’t easy to decide which bouquet to bring home with me, but as Monet said:

I must have flowers, always, and always. 
Claude Monet

I had to pick one of them. Can you guess which one?

FOTD – Tulips

First tulips of 2019

Good Morning! Happy Friday!

Tulips season is starting here in my part of the world. Of course, not yet in my garden, but at least at the grocery stores.

Tulips are my favorite spring flowers, I never get tired of photographing them.

noticing # 1

i need to give a boost to my creativity.

i have lots of ideas popping up, but i’m always procrastinating, saying it’s ok if i leave it for tomorrow and then at the end of the week and month i’ve done nothing!

i need discipline, routine, but at the same time, i want freedom.   i know, for sure, that my projects should involve photography and words so i decided to register what i notice around me, little things along the way.

i’ll give it a try, i’ll post every day a photography and few words that come to my mind. hope you enjoy!

here is my first ‘noticing’

the exact moment when we discover that we can bloom,

each one in a particular way,

but nevertheless showing off our true essence.

“The beauty of life is in small details, not in big events.”

Jim Jarmusch

Hope your day is going well. Stop few minutes and pay attention to the detail of the things around you. It can be the prettiness of the tiny petals inside hibiscus flower if you are in a garden. It can be a small crack in your cup of coffee if you are in the office. It can be the dripping of water from the tap if you are in the kitchen, it can be … so many things that we don’t pay attention in the hurry of getting ‘big’ things done.

Don’t forget: Stop; Breathe; Listen

Hugs,

E.
