Plants, Animals & People. 

Everywhere we go we see them, feel them & have some sort of contact with them. Today I was surrounded by all three in a combined, new discovery type of way!

The botanic garden with its exhibition of living butterflies was amazing, I really had a great experience. It kinda felt like I needed a reminder of how beautiful and extraordinary nature is, not that I ever forgot, but the daily routine can blur your lenses. 

I recently read a quote that really fits what I am experiencing now with this project.

A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera. - Dorothea Lange

The world has to offer very beautiful things, many small things that one might not pay attention to because of a 40h + week, responsibilities etc. Of course I am no different, but I think that right now that I always have my camera with me and that I try to find the next beautiful thing around me, I am seeing more of my surrounding than before (if that makes any sense). I love how I start noticing details about the world directly in front of me, I will try to keep it up!

Beautiful! I am planning a trip to our local butterfly house soon (almost went today - now I really want to go!). I totally agree that this 365 day project is helping me find beautiful things every day too. Aren't we lucky?!
