I woke up this morning to what looked like a dark and dreary rainy day. The kind of day you just want to stay curled up in a comfy chair reading a good book. Even the dog didn’t want to get out of bed and she really didn’t want to go out in the rain to do her business. But I had a list of chores that I had to do and errands to run. I decided to take my camera with me. After all, part of the impetus behind this blog was to be more creative and experience my world in a different way. I’ve noticed that taking my camera helps me be more aware of my surroundings, gaze more appreciatively and with more interest.
