Today I enjoyed the journey. I wanted to take pictures of the turtles sunning themselves on the bank of our pond. But then by the time I got close to them, they had all jumped back in the pond. So I saw the ducks and tried to catch them in flight and then landing in the water. The shot was perfect- the lighting, the ducks but then my camera was out of focus. So I just stopped and watched them for a while. Then later I went on a ride to enjoy this gorgeous day. As I was riding I was watching the countryside and out of nowhere this bright patch of purple popped out of the thick woods. I didn’t have my gear so I came back later to capture it. It was much more enjoyable than having a set agenda for today. I simply enjoyed the journey instead of worrying about the destination. That’s definitely something I need to do more of everyday.
