When every day life gets you down, have an adventure!
I read an article in a newspaper recently that promoted the idea of seeing beauty in the every day – Day 64/365. We always seem too busy to notice the little things but it’s these things that help us to slow down. I’m doing the exact same thing by looking for the adventure in the every day. I like to think that my every day is an adventure project is an example of both these things – beauty and adventure!
I’m currently visiting my parents who live in the north of our state, (I’m much further down south), and the difference in the weather and the flowers are amazing. I’m enjoying both the warmth and the delightful colours of the plants, not to mention being able to spend some time with my parents! This flower is an example of the beauty that abounds in the every day. I admit to having some fun playing with the editing of this one.

I’m also submitting this to Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge as this week is all about macro photographs. I used my iphone5 for this photo (in fact all my photos are taken on my phone) and used the macro feature. I then edited it much more than I normally do, with the contrast, colour, and sharpness bringing about this delightful result (well I think it’s delightful anyway). I also used a vignette to tone down the background so that the flower stands out so much.
I’d love to hear what you think.
