304/365 – The Last of the Green

Tuesday, November 9

The weather yesterday was just incredible, and so Elliot went on a walk for a bit before I had to go to class. Everything is pretty much brown here because we have had hardly any rain, so when I saw this patch of bright green grass, with the sun shining behind it, my eyes lit up. I immediately sat down on the ground to take some pictures.

104/365 – New Glow

Today is a day of a bunch of random thoughts. So, prepare yourself if you choose to read on.

I wish leaves could stay this bright green color year round. I love it more than I can explain.

I love when I take a ton of pictures for the day, and when going through to select one to edit, one just immediately jumps out at me and I get super excited about it.

Earlier today I was thinking about my photographs, and I started getting really frustrated. I was sick of taking pictures of normal, every day things. I wanted something exciting and beautiful and extraordinary. I was feeling totally uninspired and almost didn’t want to take a picture today. But then on the drive home from school the clouds were stunning, and i walked out in my front yard, and looked up, and saw this. And I was completely satisfied with taking pictures of “mundane” things, because, maybe it’s just me, but this isn’t so mundane. I think it is pretty darn incredible and beautiful. It is incredible how God (yes, I give all credit to him) gives me inspiration when I need it the most.

Sorry about the long “rant” of sorts, it needed to come out.

Oh, and this is late because my school was playing Avatar for free in the student center. I couldn’t pass that up.
