Look and see.

How's your week been?  
Two of my grandchildren had birthdays this week, 
so we have had some wonderful family time.
But in between I've been trying to see in a different way. 
Looking as if seeing things for the first time.
Appreciating patterns, shapes and the space between.













 It's surprising what you see when you look through different eyes, isn't it?

Bye for now

  2. It is surprising! What an inspiring landscape - it would be fantastic to sit and paint it. (I can't paint so that's pure fantasy.)

  5. Beautiful, since I have s
    Taken up painting, I look at things differently, I wonder how much I have missed over the years with just looking not seeing.

    1. Painting and photography, any creative art I suppose, really help you to see things and I don't think we've missed anything...it's still there waiting for us!

    1. What a beautiful description Amélie - I am glad you have reminded me of this because today all I can see is the weeds and the work that has to be done. I will carry your words with me and that will give me great encouragement - thank you so much.

  11. It seems that everything here in California is the color of summer, very vibrant and ready to harvest or just bone dry. Your photos of sky and water remind me that winter will come, colors will change and so will we. All the blue is grounding for me!

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying the blue here, and so interesting to imagine you there with the summer colours perhaps of wheat and barley ripening? I'm not sure. Will pop over to your blog to check Deb.
