I was looking for a phrase that would express what I was thinking about regarding how immense the beauty of nature is.  The only thing that came to mind was “can’t see the forest for the trees” but then, that’s maybe more a reference to missing out on this.  I suppose that is kind of the point.  There is so much surrounding us that we lose that sense of wonder.  We get used to it and don’t give it a second thought.

When I was admiring this rain-covered hydrangea it really impressed me to think of how many little blue flower were right there.  Each one a little work of art seemingly rushing out to celebrate the day.  It makes me wonder how we get so absorbed into our small view of the world.  We let things that are small and passing fill our thoughts and drive what we do.

There are so many reasons to be filled with awe over what surrounds us.  Putting a little more wonder into our lives is always a good thing.  I hope I can do that more often.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
