Ten beautiful things

Yesterday I was having a very sad day – I’ll imagine various sympathetic expressions!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ When I decided I was going for a long walk, my usual answer, L gave me a task … he challenged me to take ten photos of beautiful things and then I’d have to show him the proof when I got back … what?! How was I meant to find anything beautiful, let alone ten, in that mood?!!

My hubby knows me well! I found ten beautiful things to take a photo of … in fact, I ended up finding more than tenย  … what a surprise for this camera-loving girl, right?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

How could I have avoided this first one, sitting, as these flowers were, right in my path outside the green grocers round the corner?!

Laugh if you like, but I just had to include this in my beautiful-things-line-up!! I think that the sight of rows and rows of books is a truly beautiful sight!!! Is that very sad of me?! ๐Ÿ˜›

This used book stall, which is much bigger than this picture suggests, is set up nearly every day of the week on the street just 2 minutes from my front door … let’s just say that the friendly man who runs it recognizes my face and is always glad to see me back … !!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

What could be more beautiful than a tree dripping with red dots?!? ๐Ÿ˜›

There’s something so beautiful and graceful about trees and their spreading branches!

These leaves looked almost like scattered petals on the grass where I found them!

I love reflections! Beautiful!! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is one of the first of many, many photos of autumn-coloured leaves that you will definitely be seeing over the next three or so months … I love autumn, I love autumn colours and guess what?! I love taking photos!! ๐Ÿ˜› Bet you couldn’t have guessed that one!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This one speaks for its self really, doesn’t it?!

Have I ever mentioned the words predictable, compulsive or adictive in connection with myself, trees, the sun and my camera?!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The wind was gusting these willow branches around, the sun casting beautiful shadows and patterns!! A moment of perfection!

I took this photo late last night, when after a day of sun, muggy heat and gathering black clouds, it poured down with rain. I caught the rain in the light of the street lamp outside my living room window … I love the beautiful, glowing golden-orange light!

What are three beautiful things that you’ve seen so far this weekend?

  1. One day, I hope that I get to walk around an exhibition where I see some of R M’s photographs printed in full colour large scale glory like they deserve! Honestly, R if you haven’t considered it before…start thinking about it! I say this because I recently went to an art exhibition called ‘hope and poverty’ which explored images of the world’s pain and what hope looks like- we have lots of artists at my church and they participated- never been to something like that before, but its really powerful. You can speak so much to a person through a single image! Any just food for thought, but I can talk to my friends who’ve done it if you ever want to know more…

      • Well, I might be biased but I do think you have great potential! By the way, my current background on the laptop is your last picture of the streetlamp glow on the rain- I think its beautiful and not seen anything like it before. It also makes me think of you whenever I switch my computer on ๐Ÿ™‚
