Slice of Life 2020: Day 20
Flowers, birds, bees, sunshine and a little spare time. That’s all it took to get us outside today. I bought a new battery for my second camera, plugged it in and off we went to see spring. Art class will be held outside!
Stepping away from our screens, we ventured across the street to a neighbor’s yard. There we saw snow drops, daffodils, camellias, and violets.
“Your shot’s a little blue,” I told my son and pointed to the white balance icon. He changed it over to sunshine, a first for this year. After he made that change, all his photos then reflected the proper golds and greens of the day.
This short outing was such a nice change of pace. There was no band, baseball, or meetings to keep our day compartmentalized, which gave us the freedom to just breathe in the fresh air outside. We didn’t have to be anywhere or do anything! That’s the silver lining to this cloud we find ourselves in right now: a second chance to slow things down and enjoy the people and life around us.
