This morning I awoke early and made the mistake of turning on TV news. Within a half hour my frame of mind matched the grey skies outside, so I turned media off. Though my mood lightened, my senses had been tainted — even the morning walk with Jello started out with a tinge of sadness.
This afternoon we ventured farther north along the beach than we have ever gone before — to a root-ball that has been a fixture in the distance for months.
My goal was to take some shots framed by the tangle of roots — I believe it’s always healthy to see the world through serendipitous perspectives!
And sometimes the day has flashes of brilliance and silver-linings in store.
I’m just standing here with a camera that can capture it!
I love these atmospheric photographs and I make sure I always read or watch something positive after watching or reading the news before going out – http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org is a lovely antidote 💜
Thank you, Xenia. The news these days in the USA is pretty bleak from my perspective!
This series has been interesting, seeing how your mood changes along with the setting.
It was interesting to set this as a challenge to myself and watch it unfold!
I tell Marla to turn the news off; it’s too bleak and depressing! 🙂
So true, Tom!
