After a brief bout with a foot injury & procedure to fix it, I can finally wear shoes again! Since I decided on my word, LIVE, I bought a new pair of walking shoes and have started walking again after a year of doing nothing that resembles exercise hiatus! It feels good to get out and breathe the fresh air again. But I tell ya, after living in the same neighborhood for 12 years, there's not a whole lot else to see. Sooooooo, I had a lightbulb moment & quite honestly don't know why I hadn't thought of it before. (that's sort of normal for me!) I did everything opposite. I walked the opposite side of the street, where I end my walk, I went that way first. I actually ended up on a street I hadn't been on in....well, years.
We live in a pretty typical southern California suburb & there's no real character to the homes...not that I'm not grateful for a beautiful home-but now that I want to photograph everything, It's hard to find anything worth snapping around here anymore.
I do love big baubles in the trees.
It IS sort of cool we see blooms are year round here.
Now, there's nothing extraordinary about these shots. The point is, I would have missed them had I not changed things up to get a fresh perspective...which is always a good thing. Oh, and I scored me them lemons! So, this year I am looking to find little ways to get fresh perspectives. I'm already trying things I don't know too much about but hopefully will become as natural as brushing my teeth. And if not, that ok...I tried. It's so easy to fall into what's comfortable, and sometimes we need that too.
But for me and my word, LIVE, fresh=good!
Are you doing or trying anything new this year? Please share with me. I'd love to hear your ideas.
Happy (fresh perspective) shooting!
