I was sitting at an intersection this morning waiting for the light to turn green. I was on my way home from morning errands, my youngest son was with a babysitter ( a huge luxury for me) and my older son was at Kindergarten. Just before the light turned green I realized how much I needed a walk in a beautiful natural setting. I switched lanes, turned left and directly into our local arboretum to take a 20 minute walk among the freshly blooming spring flowers and shaded trails.
I left everything in my car except my phone so I knew what time it was (I don’t wear a watch), and my camera. This flower (I don’t know its name) was the first beautiful thing that caught my eye. It is such a detail rich subject. I bent down trying to catch the warm light and incredible details.
When I arrived back home and happened to see the latest Weekly Photo Challenge “Lost in the Details” I am honestly shocked at how fitting a photograph I took just hours earlier is for this challenge. What a way to start the weekend, a walk by myself in a beautiful place, surrounded by spring flowers blooming and photo opportunities around every corner. Happy Friday!
