Nature is truly beautiful. It’s a joy using my camera to capture so many wonderful sites that are just a short drive away. Sometimes is the wide-angle landscape that catches my eye, with colors so rich I can almost feel the view as I stare at the sky and the endless horizon. Other times, it’s the single flower that speaks to me. The picture above sums up that shot perfectly well. I love the detail of the small things that often go unnoticed. It’s like an entire universe to itself–one of beauty of wonder.
Tomorrow will be the last day of my 100 day stretch to pursue my dream of become self sufficient financially through my writing and photography. While I’m going to extend this time frame–3 to 4 weeks were taken up with consulting–I’m a long way off I’m afraid from doing this fulltime. I still have hope, but something must happen soon to convince me that art is going to pay the bills. If it doesn’t, it’s back to finance and accounting.
