I love the details.
I love on my travels when I come across people who take the same delight in simple things that I do, but it’s actually less often than one might think.
I’m the silly/cheery/overly-enthusiastic Canadian girl taking a close up photo of a cracked flower pot on someone’s front step, or old lace trim on a couch cushion or line of stacked espresso cups at the café, and all of that makes me super happy.
I thought I’d share some of those ‘detail’ photos from the summer so far. 🙂
As cliché as it is, ‘stopping to smell the roses’ (or artichoke flowers 😉) is important to me especially when I travel, and I think my parents instilled in me at a very young age an appreciation for noticing little things.
Sometimes I remember to photograph these visual treats. If I really have time, I have sketched them out instead. I recently read somewhere to try and sketch or paint your travels instead of taking photos, so I’ve started taking time to do more of that.
So many little things that I am happy to capture in the moment: from every day household items and architecture, to nature and the neverending offerings of the skies here..
I hope you enjoyed this snippet of photo treasures. I’m sure there are plenty more to come. 🙂
