This is an Agave in a pot by my pool. I love the shapes, the colours, the smooth lines. They are such hardy plants. Drought tolerant in fact, which is perfect here in Queensland where we can go long periods without rain (though we sure got our fair share of rain just recently!!).
That flat, down mood is within me again today. Not sure why. I hope it will go away soon!
I suppose these down days do provide some insight with regards to how to help snap yourself out of it. I know a couple of things:
- Nature has a way of lifting my spirits. There is beauty in all of it. You just need to stop and look.
- For some reason, nature gives me the most pleasure when looking through the lens of a camera. There is that excitement of maybe capturing something really special. Therefore, photography definitely lifts my spirits also. I love it! It has given me a way to stop, notice and capture beauty. I also love that it provides a great distraction, because I love to play around with different shot angles and usually take many different shots with the hope of capturing at least that one special shot. I love that about photography.
I’m grateful for photography and nature for providing me with distraction, beauty, hope and joy when I need it.
