thankful [47/52]

If you were to ask me what I am most thankful for in my life, I wouldn’t hesitate to answer that it is my daughter. Hands down.

But you just try to get some camera time with her ;)

I’m thankful for a lot of things… love, friends, family, a roof over my head and a comfortable life. I try not to take these things for granted.

But I’m especially grateful for the ability to see the beauty of it all. Grateful for the moments when I stand still and breathe in the magic all around us.

And grateful for the means to show you what I see.


There’s beauty in the everyday, ordinary moments.

You just have to let yourself see.

    Oh my. I’m a huge fan macro shots, and a huge fan of flora/fauna. This is just gorgeous. Nothing else to say. Well done on the challenge :)

    Absolutely beautiful! Your focus is so crisp, and the textures soften the sharpness of the image.
    Well done!
