Finding Color Under Grey Skies

flowers 079-2

We are back in Michigan and it is great to be with family and long-time friends. I also remember why we decided to spend winters in Florida – we have had nothing but white skies for the close to a week we have been back. I lied – there have been three times when the sun came through the cloud cover just enough to cast soft shadows – for a couple of minutes.

I have been keeping myself from the brink of depression by sorting through old files. I have been needing to delete some NEF photo files, buy a new computer, or find a better external storage system than I currently have. Going through my old files of photos of Florida’s flowers is free and provides me with just enough sunshine sans not vitamin D.

Another benefit of going through my old files is that it brings back memories. I smile as I remember spending some early morning time by the pool practicing using lens extensions with my 50 mm lens. There are several different hibiscus shrubs and they never fail to delight me with their beautiful color and graceful petals.

If you also live close to big bodies of water where cold air and relatively warm water is producing endless grey skies, I hope my found color brings a little joy to your day.
