i have a brain and eyes.
remember that, "just because you have instagram doesn't make you a photographer quote"?
so we're all aware: i'm not a photographer.
i don't have an expensive camera.
this is not my occupation.
it's really not even a hobby.
but i do have a brain and eyes.
and i like to capture pictures of pretty things.
and i'm pretty proud of this shot:
this is union station at the end of 25th street in ogden.
i drive past this almost daily & until last saturday i was oblivious.
how could i have missed how beautifully historic this building is?
all i know is i'm annoyed with myself.
my incessant urgency causes me to rush to each and every event in my life and it's bothersome. i could've missed this moment! and i'm positive i've missed 378420 moments just like this one while running around in all my haste. (seriously you guys... i ripped a hole in a brand new sweater because i was rushing to take the tag off so i could put it on and run out the door.)
so i'm trying a little something new.
taking time to stop and smell the roses.
and/or capture amazing photos along my journey of calming down.
do you have any secrets to living a less anxious life?
