WPC: State of Mind

February 26, 2016 sun and sky 007


“Every photo we take says something

about our emotions at the moment of taking it.

So this week, share an image

where you see a particularly strong connection

between what we see

and what you felt

as you pressed that shutter button on your camera.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind


February 26, 2016 sun and sky 011


The wind was biting and insistent.  But the sun was bright, and we made a quick circuit of the garden together admiring the few early flowers bravely opening this afternoon.

After days of rain, dull skies, wind and storms; such clear skies and sunshine lifted our spirits.  We knew from the first rays of sun slipping in around the bedroom curtains this morning that this would prove a beautiful day.

And it has.  Winter still blankets the garden, but we feel the possibility of spring.

We found tiny signs of renewal in the garden, causes for hope, reasons to celebrate; the spark we needed transform our wintery state of mind.

  3. Lovely posts, there is just one negative… if you’re moving into Spring we’re leaving Summer behind!

    • Like children on a teeter-totter, isn’t it? It is our challenge to find the beauty as the year cycles through. By mid-August, I’m often looking for a change to cooler temperatures. Our summers get quite uncomfortably hot lately. I hope you’re enjoyed your summer this year ❤ ❤ ❤

  4. What a lovely post! Here in Northern NJ, I can find crocuses just peaking out but no blooms yet. Glad you found signs of spring in your neck of the woods.

  5. I’m happy you are finding signs of spring… Wonderful!
