In downtown Marietta, Georgia, is an old, historic square. There is a fountain in the center and flowers surrounding the center of the park where the fountain is found.
There are times when I get tired of shooting pictures of flowers. There are times when I can’t resist shooting them. Some of the flowers yesterday were very pretty and photogenic. Flowers, however, are a challenge to shoot. I’ve not quite got it figured out yet, but I hope to get better. Still, there is something about a beautiful flower that just makes us feel better about life, isn’t there? Perhaps it is a reminder that there is beauty in the world if only we take the time to look at it and appreciate it. I fear that far too often we get so busy that we don’t even take the time to see the beauty that is all around us. And we are diminished because of it.
