Today's photo challenge word was up. A simple word, easy to spell, seemingly an easy task to capture a photo expressing "up". However I did not want to take the easy way out. I wanted to find a deeper meaning for the word.
This morning on my walk I kept thinking of a way to capture up. So naturally I had my eyes to the sky, not their usual place. Typically I walk while reading on my kindle ap.
It is amazing what you can find, and see when you look up from your phone folks! Like everyone else I too am guilty of spending too much time at the computer, on Facebook, on my phone just piddling with my apps. Folks we need to look up more, we will see some amazing things. Like our kids growing up before we know it. The seasons changing, the other day I looked up and saw a momma deer and her TRIPLETS! That is a once in a life time thing!
So as I walked along, looking up and out at the world and not down at the screen of my phone I noticed this, the branches of this tree, and the sun light streaming through them created a lovely heart. A reminder to embrace and love each moment, each day. To look up and see the world around us!
