taking a moment to find joy in the little things
My favorite way to relax and unwind is to go for an evening walk (alone) with my camera. I did just that this past week, and had so much fun finding beauty in the local park. It's a great opportunity to practice using my camera and manual settings.
More than six months ago we won a silent auction for a private tour and tasting at a nearby vineyard. We invited some friends and finally cashed in on the offer over the weekend. It was a fabulous day and the wine was pretty good, too.
Our girls went along because we had nowhere else for them to go, and I found this one reading in among the barrels.
We've gotten pretty attached to our little duck family that visits our yard several times a day. They actually come up to us if we are in the yard, almost as if asking for food. As you can see from the photo in the middle, there were five ducklings. Sadly, yesterday we only saw four all day.
