Sometimes we just need to pause and think. That's why I decided to call this photograph Pause because sometimes we simply need to stop and reset. I took my son to school a little earlier than usual this morning because he had taken part in Science Olympiad at the weekend and the participants were taking part in a victory parade because his school had placed second overall! Typically for a Monday, I was in a rush and I decided I didn't have time to put my sneakers on and so I ran out with my flip flops! It was unexpectedly freezing this morning so it wasn't a great decision. I dropped my son off and as I parked I spotted the incredibly beautiful mist over the school pond. It seriously transformed it from its usual appearance. I grabbed my camera and ran over the extremely wet and chilly grass. I was really regretting not taking the time to grab my sneakers! But it was completely worth it. I don't know why I haven't noticed this little tree before but I really hadn't. For the first time I could actually see it. There it was all alone and behind it the mist was floating above the pond. I only had time to take five pictures. I am so glad I took the time to actually look and notice. We should all pause more often.
** Since I posted this I found out that I won an award for this photograph! Someone bought my photograph!!
It's a start...
I have never blogged before, but here I am starting a blog mainly because I have to for a Digital Photography class I am taking. At first I felt reluctant because I don't like feeling exposed. Excuse the pun. I love taking photographs, and especially of my children, but do I know what I am doing? No. Not at all but I hope to soon. I know this will be a wonderful and frustrating and despairing and amazing journey and who knows where it may lead. Can't wait!
