I’m talking about photography again and how you just have to stay alert all day long to the beauty the light illuminates. You just never know what you’ll see when you’re really looking.
I’m telling my mother-in-law this as we drive through the neighborhood, and we just happen to pull over to visit with a neighbor who discovers a nest of baby bunnies in her yard. We grab our cameras, of course, and marvel at the tiny bunny that’s no bigger than our hand.
I think of Peter Rabbit and smile. I just can’t get over the soft newness of him. Those little ears! That wriggling nose!
Then, we take the little one to see the baby chicks down the road, and with camera in hand, I marvel again at the soft newness of this little chick that hasn’t even grown feathers yet. Look at those bright orange feet and the big eyes!
So that’s all. You take your camera with you. You stay alert. You find delightful things right in your own neighborhood.
That’s what I do now. That’s all, and it’s so big I can hardly contain it.
Have you been able to marvel at things right in your own neighborhood?
