For this week’s challenge, try to look past the big picture and take a more intimate approach. Zoom in on details in unexpected places — it can be something from the natural world, or it can be human-made. We’re excited to see what you find with your lens.
“The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life. “ ~ William Morris ~
“The details are not the details. They make the design.” ~ Charles Eames ~
Live in the moment. Pay attention to the details that make up the design of your life. What are you paying attention to the most? Is it the chatter in your own mind or the drama in your environment?
For today, take time to breath in the beauty around you. It’s every where. Not only in nature, look around your home. There are designs in the shadows dancing on the walls, floor and furniture, and on the ceiling from a candle or light. Looking at a marble, table setting, food, pets . . . Open your eyes and notice a new world. This world is peaceful, beautiful, loving and compassionate. If we begin with ourselves to see the world in a new light, then we will begin to share this with our family, neighbors, community and the world. Love and compassion spread like wildfire. It is after the fire is put out that people forget. Let’s not forget.
“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.” ~ Ernest Hemingway ~
“Be the change you wish to see in the world” ~ Mahatma Gandhi ~
See beauty in everything and everyone. Sometimes it is hidden right in front of your eyes.
