Stop and Smell The Flowers

“Stop and smell the roses.”

We’ve all heard this one, over and over again. It’s never more true than when it comes to photography. We spend so much of our lives running from place to place, getting from photoshoot to photoshoot, that sometimes we forget about what’s in between. Or what’s right in our own backyards. I spent some time this past weekend smelling (and lying in!) the wild flowers near my home. I really noticed them a few weeks ago while on my morning run. I knew what had to be done, the fields were calling me and telling me to stop and “look” and submerge myself in them. Oh, the things we do for our art. And now I have the insect bites to prove it!

So, take some time to find the beauty around you this summer. Just don’t forget the bug spray.  🙂
