The other day at work, I took a walk at lunch. Walking at lunch is not necessarily a newsworthy event as it typically involves me speed walking to some music. (Unless you count my great restraint of not dancing or singing while doing it.) But, this particular day, I walked around outside. It was a slower walk and I was just really enjoying the breeze. I was also really aware of things around me. I just felt very connected to the moment. I looked around and noticed all these little wonders: the one dandelion in all the dead grass, the bird on the branch and most of all, the sea of acorns (or what I think are acorns since they are all a bit different). I was thinking that these little wonders would look lovely in a clear jar. How had I missed this chance at Thanksgiving? There were thousands of them laying around the trees and on the sidewalk.
Of course, I had to photograph some. So, here I was practically laying on the ground in the little section next to a parking lot. I got a few looks. All I had was my iPhone so I was kneeling down and placing the phone on the ground at different angles. I am so glad I did! These little wonders were perfect for this week’s non-DLSR Macro challenge for Lens and Pens by Sally’s blog. More importantly though, they made me smile and thank God for the beauty He created.
