Above, the sun captured from my mother's birthday flowers and below the early morning moon.
I didn't have a long lens, nor a tripod, so I did the best that I could. Not until I took the flower photo this afternoon did I realize that I took both extremes today. The bright colors and vivacious feeling of the image above contrasted with the moody, dark photos below. Life is much like this, isn't it? The highs and lows, the bright and low-key, the inspirational and the peacefulness of life all seen through light and colors.
The moon was strikingly bright this morning. So bright that without any manipulation or correction the moon gave off the 'halo' seen in the images. A day that began with me wondering what to photograph ended with a stress free feeling that I had done well today to capture something interesting.
Moral of today's story? For me, to learn that whether the day is bright and full of life, or sleepy and quiet, I should find peace and happiness. Living is about finding the joy in each type of day, knowing that tomorrow will bring new experiences and new opportunities and more than likely another "type".
