I had to ask. Did you say the beauty of everything? Simple. You “snailed” it!
Once you start noticing the details around you, you automatically start seeing all the beauty you never saw before. Get out on the “snail trail” to find things to make you smile. Yes, it does take time and patience.
Every day is filled with the most ordinary things, but they can be extraordinary depending on your perspective. There is no doubt, photography changes the way you see things. It makes you look at things you would have just passed by.
You notice light, color, shape and texture. People, trees, flowers and insects are things that start to look different, even interesting.

With all the beauty, variety and awesomeness that makes up life, who could not be excited to get out there and experience it?
I throw that question back at you. What inspires you?
Many would say helping others or doing good in this world. They are the altruistic types. Other would name people and reel off a list of names.
Yet others, nature is a means for inspiration. Fresh air inspires to fill my lungs and breathe in natural beauty. A look to the sky fills me with awe. Nature in its timeless wisdom, shows us ways we should be living, gives us a scolding clue when we don’t. It also is spiritual in knowing there is something and everything greater than ourselves.
Wonder and amazement are common responses to nature. When we view a forceful storm, a landscape vista, a view from a mountaintop, or a far-reaching sea, we are inspired with the grandeur of the world around us.
The nature trail through bushes, mud, and insects is where inspiration might be hiding for me. But, it can be just about anywhere.
Funny thing, when you find certain things, you just might ponder a deeper question, or even one that is just plain simple, but the answer elusive. The image below is on Nature and Wildlife Pics. See what I was pondering.
Even though this winter to date is less inspiring than those before, there are still places to go, things to see and stuff to ponder. What inspires you?
