(taken with 100mm macro lens and 400 iso)
i've been buying my own sunshine this week as there have been too many gray days in a row to suit me. wouldn't it be nice if we could have our personal iso button? and when we needed a boost of light, just turn that sucker up?
i think i could go for that. i do think that for sure.
flowers are one of the things that make me smile for no particular reason. other things in that category are: lacy branches against a clear blue sky, the tiny sliver of a new moon, kitty paws, doggy smiles, the first spoonful of ice cream, the smell of bread baking, baby toes, sugar cubes, postcards, old glass jars, fluffy clouds and reflections in the water.
just typing those things made me smile. i like that.
in my art journal last week i wrote a longer list, but these are the ones that come to mind. oh, i forgot bluebirds. how could i forget them?
i've also have been obsessed lately with the weepies and the pogues. right now, 'the world spins madly on is playing' and it tugs at my heart. a friend mentioned it in his blog this week - a bit of serendipity to suit my day. another friend is grateful for another day with her beloved. and i was moved. because it's not the big things - it's the little bitty things that make my life good.
that and good coffee.
