Park

Last year I felt like I missed every season, every detail of so many beautiful things around me. This year I’m sort of trying to make up for it. I see so many details, and enjoy them all.  I am so wholly attracted to the simpler things in life and they’ve certainly never let me down! I may post bits of this park over and over, but something beautiful is always happening there that I just have to share.

No shoelaces needed to enjoy moshing around some fresh spring greens.

I only had my wedding ring on me. Perfect natural setting for a ring shot. Couldn't help myself.

The treat for the evening was the barred owl and it's mate, in a tree far above us.

Evening Walk

One of my favorite outdoor hangouts is McDaniel Farm Park. Featured plenty of times on this blog, this place is really magical. I don’t know of any other place that retains its beauty through all junctures in weather and amidst every season. Spring has barely sprung at the park and I couldn’t help but find myself there on a balmy Tuesday.  I captured a few spring spirits already fully adorned in flowery grandeur. If you live in Georgia, now’s the time to get out!

Cross

At the park on Thursday, it was clear that fall had indeed arrived. The trees were all disrobing and the grandmothers walking around the tracks all had their sweaters.

Fire

I’m enjoying the fall colors. I always do. And this year, after my inital allergy attack on return from my trip, I haven’t had any attacks since. Lets hope this stays that way!

I’m also trying something new. With watermarks. Usually I don’t watermark anything. I hate watermarks. But now I’m seeing my stuff…everywhere.  Maybe a small white tasteful watermark and full metadata will help drive some traffic back here. :)

Autumn Chattahoochee

It’s already been a few days since I’ve been back from my honeymoon but already the atmosphere of normalcy is already separating me from the mental state of that trip. I’m settling back into work, some business is already calling, and my sudden influx of all this non wedding-consumed free time is liberating … even exhilarating! I have started to notice small things around me again which is actually pretty great.

Since Jeremy is now working just a couple miles down the road from where I work, he is dropping me off and picking me up from work everyday. It’s kind of awesome. We start and end our workdays together.
I’m also carrying my camera with me again, everyday. This morning as we crossed over the chattahoochee,  I whipped out the camera and grabbed this scene. The fall colors, barely muted, laced against against the river.  It felt good to feel the weight of the camera in my hand, and to not be gripping a steering wheel wishing I could take the photo. :)

I’ve felt somewhat distant from who I am the past year. The wedding went beautifully… but I’m ready to realign myself.
