Gratitude – and a bunch of flowers

This morning I had time to really read Lee Aspland’s blog post about Gratitude and follow some of the links he recommended (well worth a look: L A Photography on Facebook) – I really enjoyed the work of Kim Manley Ort who I had not come across before – I am looking forward to buying her book shortly!

I was struck by her comment:

“Ever since then, I’ve practiced reweaving my web of connection through photography.
My camera teaches me how to slow down (pause), pay attention (focus) and then connect with what’s there (click the shutter). It teaches me about myself, what I’m drawn to and what I turn away from. It teaches me how to engage, and most importantly, how to trust what I must share.”    (from Kim’s guest post on Lee’s website).

After reading a lot of interesting sites, I came downstairs and was really struck by the beauty of the flowers I was given by my sister in law last night.   I felt very grateful for that present moment when the glorious patterns filled my mind.   So I got my camera out and took this gallery of shots.
