Take Some Time to Smell the Flowers

You’ll be glad you did. Today seemed like a great day to see what was blooming in the garden that Melissa and I put together.

I love mornings like this one: the day after a steady stream of rain, where everything is refreshed and the colours start to really come out. Behind the lens you can often find something spectacular… if you take the time to look.

I spent some time looking today, and I’m glad I did.

Take some time today, get out there, and smell the flowers.
