9.30.12 ... photography fun on a night long ago


i am so far behind on organizing my iphoto library and blogging that today's post is a blast from the past. i took these last fall on an evening visit to the state capitol grounds in austin. this was shortly before we moved. we loved to go walking there. scout would people watch and fill sketchbook pages. and it is just a beautiful environment for photography and your soul. we usually photo the grounds and buildings but on this night i was playing around with the low light challenges. these are two of my favorites. they both capture scout's spirit which always brings me great happiness and inspiration.


i've been pondering the differences between last year's blogging and this one. i went from one extreme - posting 365 days in a row - to another - so far this year i've accumulated a mere 18 posts. i have so many topics and photos waiting for this blog. i plan to post more often this last quarter of the year. which is why i started with this one. happiness and inspiration encourage me to keep moving forward. what are your inspirations? please leave a comment below and share your joy and triumphs over your personal challenges with my readers. have a beautiful day today. 

thanks for stopping by. until next time. happiness to you. from me. with heart.

One of my challenges is that I let little things really get to me. Just this weekend, I was really pleased with how the morning went, and really proud of myself, and then some little things went awry in the afternoon, and I let them overtake me. My inspirations are the very natural place we live ... such beauty and very placid temps! And my animals, who always make me laugh and are so "tied" to being near me, and most especially, my husband Bob, who purposely sees every day as a good day. He never sweats the small stuff. Any day above ground is a good day, he says.

hi sooz and thanks so much for sharing your thoughts here. i join you in your challenge. although it does bother me that i am easily bothered, i also appreciate the upside of that personality trait - being highly sensitive, intuitive and empathetic. as much pain as that brings me on a regular basis, i prefer feeling and living more fully than so, so many others. there are advantages to being aware and analytical. as you also mentioned, our inspirations then bring us a heightened sense of happiness and comfort.

i LOVE bob's above ground saying. even if i will continue to sweat almost everything. :)
