My children are bouncing with energy now that school is out for the summer. Its only day one and already they are driving me crazy. Trying to get work done while the kids are home is nearly impossible and drags on for many hours. This afternoon a Shutter Sister suggested I go into my backyard in search of magic.
Well my backyard is a desert weed wasteland and generally lacking in photographic interest for me. I do however tend to a small garden in my front yard as it is somewhat shaded from the searing heat during the summer months. I have a colorful variety of Autumn Sage growing. I love the smell of the sage as I am watering. The Autumn Sage was like aromatherapy for me today. To complete my therapy I grabbed my camera, laid down on the ground and just started taking pictures. A calming peace began to surround me.
The chirping birds called me away from my dainty flowers and encouraged me to explore new wonders in my yard. As I was shuttering away in my yard, creative ideas started to flow through my mind. New creations incorporating some photos began to take shape. Quickly I jotted them down on paper to save until tomorrow.
This is Beyond my Backyard…
