Sonel’s Corner is hosting a b+w photo challenge and this week’s theme is nature.
Some prefer to take center stage and stretch their heads up high so as to be recognized or noticed. Some prefer to hover in the background and simply observe. Some just stretch their heads straight up content with where they are headed. Some stretch their heads left or right to see what else the world has to offer. Some are still full of life and some are not.
Life can catch you up in its vicious cycle called “routine.” Routine keeps you sane, keeps you grounded, gives you the sense of “being in control”, but can dull your senses, keep you from noticing the small things in life that can make you smile. When routine causes the latter symptoms, my family always escapes by grabbing our souls and heading to the mountains for a lil’ camping adventure.
Our latest soul recharging camping trip was to Michigan Creek campground which provided us with biking, hiking, fishing, wildflowers, wildlife, and tons of new memories to replay in a loop when routine clouds us.
What do you do when your soul needs to be recharged? Have you been on a soul recharging adventure lately? Sometimes, we need these adventures to make us stop, remind us to pay attention to the little things, and smile.
The Photographer’s prompt for today on The Daily Post is sharing.
Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background or the foreground the center of attention. The Daily Post
