Heading West

A few notes from the journey....

First snow of the winter in the plane....at 20,000 feet. I was napping for part of the flight. Suddenly, I woke up to a glimpse of white streaking by out the window. It was snowing at elevation, although when the plane landed in Denver, it was just rain.


One thing I've noticed during our day in transit is how much more visual I am now that I've been blogging for almost a year. I want to photograph so many of the things I see. Taking pictures of things that are beautiful, interesting or inspiring to me so frequently has increased my capacity for enjoying those things - and for enjoying life.


At the car rental agency, a small patch of grass, no bigger than our living room had at least 15 rabbits grazing on it. I love spotting bunnies because we see them so seldom in NH. Bailey would love to hang out and chase them!!

I just wish I had pictures of the snow and the bunnies!! But when I'm in transit I'm a bit of a zombie!

I know what you mean about seeing more because of the blogging. Many pictures I see online - including yours - inspire me to try new angles and macros, etc. It's really changed my photography and my self expression. I also know I'm taking many, many more pictures!

Thanks Delighted Hands!!

Jennifer, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed that effect of blogging. I feel like it's good for me to be a more visual thinker....but it's been a noticeable transition. And thanks for letting me know that some of my pictures inspire you. My blog is all about inspiration, so that makes me happy!
