Last night I was taking a look at the Be Still 52 assignment for Week 11. Talk about perfect timing! I’ve had a very busy 10 days with three of my grandchildren visiting and I’ve loved every moment of it.
But this morning suddenly, I am all alone …
So I had time to think … what does stillness look like to me?
Well, it’s a quiet cup of coffee all by myself. Looking out the window. It’s being able to concentrate on one thing at a time (ahem … it getting harder to multi-task as I age) and so when I have the grands, it’s all about them. I don’t go trying to set up a photo shoot, it just does not work for me. Plus I want to be present for them.
But today! ah the freedom!!
It wasn’t long until I wandered out into the garden. Then I found myself at the potting bench with a handful of flowers and berries, excited to set up a little vignette. These potting bench vignettes take time: I create an arrangement I think will work, then I have to run up the stairs to look down on it, and then back down the stairs to rearrange, then back up, then back down … I can do this 10 times before I’m satisfied.
This morning I had a couple of prompts from IG that I was trying to incorporate. One was “vantage point” and the other was “shapes”. I’m quite pleased with the results. I took the photo with my phone since it’s the easiest and today it’s all about easy …
Now it’s time to head out for the day. I have places to go, things to do (no people to see) and I’m quite sure I’ll be taking a few side trips down country roads. I hope I “find” something to share with you tomorrow. Until then, have a creative day!
