Sticks, Stones & Stuff……

I take pictures…….I take pictures with my eyes, store them in gray matter via a lonely brain cell. I share these pictures from my eyes to whomever likes to view these pictures……I share pictures I’ve taken through my eyes via the lens of several cameras.  Some good, some not so good.  I am not a professional picture taker at all.  I take what I see and hope for the best that it turns out somewhat nice………if not……deleting is quite simple……….

I find peace, relaxation, and excitement when I take pictures.  It gives me peace to be one with nature……..it relaxes me as I ponder the shot, the angles, the light…….the excitement comes from snapping the picture and sharing……………

When I travel, either near or far, I pick up treasures……simple, small pieces of a beach, a trail, or pathway that lies ahead of me.  Sticks, stones, sea shells, dried weeds, leaves……..all treasures that can be arranged and maybe something pretty once again can be viewed………

Sticks, stones, and other stuff………..small treasures that give my heart a big smile each time I touch and hold them…………
