Neighborhood Textures

This past weekend I took the time to really look at the local nature, the plants & living things all around me. I saw insects interacting with flowers, the textures and colors of leaves, flower petals folding elegantly around each other—amazing & beautiful things I had to take the time to stop & observe. These days I've been craving to refine my compositional eye, so I've been documenting these local beauties with my phone. So far it has been a great exercise & has increased the sense of peace & awe in me about this world I live in.
