My 365...

I will be riding my bike down the path, through town or on  busy street, and my eyes will notice a tiny detail on the side of the road or in the sky.  A bird, a cloud, a bright flower, an interesting leaf, a rock...and my eye will zero in on that detail and appreciate its beauty.

I almost always have to stop, pull out the camera and snap a picture.  The boys don't mind either.  They have grown accustomed to the "mama pause for photo" phenomena when we are riding.

Sometime it is not even a specific item either.  It could be the shadow that Casey might be casting as he passes between me and the  sun, or the effect of the sun shining behind Blake.  My mind screams "Stop!"  I need a picture.

I call it the gift of focus, some may refer to it as photography  It is a miracle we get any miles in as often as I am pausing to take a photo.

On our ride this evening I had extreme focus overload!  We road for just under 15 miles, and I swear I must have taken over 400 pictures. It was a gorgeous day here in Boise, and the sky was finally smoke free.  On the ride home we stopped in at the Boise Rose Garden in the center of town, and the colors...oh my goodness, the colors.  I had no idea roses were at their most stunning in the Fall.  My Nikon was overwhelmed with color.

It was a perfect day.  :)

"Would you like to know which detail I noticed today mama?"
 "You left me home alone yet again!  I am not speaking to you now..."

Music I am listening to today...Trent Dabbs, This Time Tomorrow
Random Link of the Day...Greek Lentil Soup

The Daily V...When you take the time to focus on the details, life is so much more beautiful.

Until next time...
