Hi Everyone! I spent the last few months in a haze. Apart from many other things, I spent a lot of time pondering the subject of existentialism, alongside a feeling of swimming forever without reaching the shoreline. When this happens, I escape into my self-made world of photography and painting. It wraps me in a safe cocoon. Sometimes I find it very hard to leave that world behind and come back to reality.
Simple 365 – Set 1
Please Click on the image thumbnails to see the photos.
A part of my little world recently changed forever, even before the larger world started to go awry around us. Sadly, it is an echo of my current state of mind, more destructive than constructive. I started taking daily photos of simple, everyday things to remind me to be happy. Reflective of my current state, they are in black and white.
Very aptly, my husband suggested I call it “Simple365“.
I really love the solitudinous nature of a forest; it creates such a beautiful setting for reflection. My cat is happy to be there, enjoying the simplicity only nature can bring. An oak tree, strong and wise, protects my cat within its branches. There is a green butterfly that roams there. They trade secrets with each other. Today, the butterfly is telling him about metamorphosis.
I hope this little story of their friendship made you smile.
If you will, please leave a happy note or memory in the comments. Let me know which one of my “Simple365” strikes a chord with you. Join me if you wish. You don’t have to take a picture everyday, but do look around you, take a photo and share if you like. It might make someone else smile too.
Take care and until next time,
I am linking up with the linky parties on my Events And Links page. Please pay a visit to some of them.
