Sweet Shot Tuesday

Sometimes between when class is out and when I have to go get the girls, I study.  Sometimes, I read a book or write a paper, or knock out a PowerPoint presentation.  But, today, I went outside and the air was crisp and the sinking sun was blanketing the earth in its yellow rays.  So, I grabbed the camera and I went for a walk.

Sac State is a beautiful campus with beautiful trees,  Oaks and Redwoods, all nestled next to the river.  So, I went up the walking trail, past the levee, and across the foot bridge

and on the other side I fell in love with this mangled looking tree as it basked in the sunset.

I took a few more shots, a few deep breaths, and then headed back to campus to load up the girls and start our journey home.

Today, I reveled in the Small Things:  A brisk walk, an evening sunset, some quiet time to be introspective.  I fell in love with nature, and then I remembered what makes life so wonderful - the beauty and the joy.

How will you revel in the Small Things today?

Sweet Shot Day

Love your sights of Autumn!!! Isn't it strange, how we forget to revel in the small things of life??

Thank you... just one of Sacramento's many charms. I love the shot, but the streetlight bothers me so I almost didn't post it. Then, I thought about removing the light with photoshop. In the end, though, I just used the SOOC shot and I think I love it! :)

Thank you! And thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for reminding me to remember and appreciate the small things. It's so easy to get caught up in the stress and let those thoughts rule our day.
