I've been noticing something lately. Ever since I have become rather obsessed with picture taking, I feel like a little kid again. I notice things I don't remember noticing before, things that I took for granted before. I notice lots of things. Lots!
I notice the sliver of a moon.
I notice the birds in the brush behind me.
I notice the leaves springing to life on the trees.
I notice how the snow piles on the hitchin' post.
I notice how the frost edges a leaf.
I notice how only one little weed is covered in frost while everything around it is only edged.
I notice raindrops on grass.
I notice the sun shining through the trees.
I notice bees sunning themselves on a rock.
I notice individual droplets of water in what appears to be a solid stream to my naked eye.
I notice Sugar's eye.
I notice my reflection in Midori's eye.
I notice Chey.
Actually I notice Chey a lot.
I mean, like, really a lot.
I notice the centers of flowers.
I notice the hairy stems and leaves of flowers.
I notice red planes flying over my head while I'm trying to eat.
I notice so many intricate details and little things that I never paid attention to before. More importantly I take the time to appreciate all the little things that I don't remember noticing before. And you know what? I love it! I love feeling like a little kid again. I love finding interesting or new things. Things that I may have walked past a hundred times and then suddenly notice it for the first time and go wow, that would make a great picture! It makes everything so much more interesting!
