Procrastination

    1. Ah, I’m so happy you appreciated my little tip. I don’t like the extreme stark versus white winter, but instead focused on getting a “balanced” composition. I’m sure you will try it. Remember, however, I did have 2 lenses that stepped down the shutter speed, so you may not want to go as high as +2 or +3 with your EV. As for those thoughts, they apply to everyone. We all procrastinate at times. I actually accomplished something yesterday I have been putting off for 2 years. Why we do these things is beyond me. I’m usually the jump in and just do it kind of gal. Have a good day, Dan! ☺️

    1. My secret? One of the lenses I mentioned deliberately “pops” reds. (wink) Oh yes there are reds but this lens intensifies them. I’ll keep those reds coming just for you, Scott. 😉

  1. We are only “limited” by “Negative” thought. All “things” are achievable, We have Not even “begun” to scratch the surface of Our Full Potential………We WILL nachieve this, when We LOVE and become ONE

    1. I understand what you are saying. Yet … the limitations of my life I accept and with them I still accomplish all I intend to. IF I had listened to the medical field, I probably would not be alive today. I am walking when all doctors told me I would not be. That is just one little fact from my life. Understanding the reality of circumstances prevents frustration when we attempt to accomplish things in ways we were not meant to. If one road is blocked, find another. Or something like that. Thank you for the added thoughts. Bless you! 💝

      1. Mmmmmm …. you’ve really got me thinking. Being we are Divine, would we not be bored if we did not have limitations in our lives so we could build character, strength, grow beyond Who We Are, and to prove to ourselves we can still achieve what we were born to achieve? I like that way of thinking come to think about it. (smile) ☺️

      2. Love projects our “character” it is Our True self, who we ‘really’ are, our Truth. The “opposite” is to be said, having no limitations allows us to expand and grow infinitly.
        Freeing ourselves from that which no longer “serves” Us. The possibilities are Infinite. “Being” in Love, We only “look” Forward
        We need not “prove” to ourselves we can “achieve”, Truth is “Knowing”

  2. Great words and powerful images – it’s so worth it to have someone who knows what they’re doing, like you my friend – taking these lovely photos because the effect on the words of wisdom is triple fold! Did you change your site’s name? Really enjoyed this post!! Much love, Donna

    1. Thank you, Donna! I am learning so much about composition! I’m committed to acting like a professional photographer in that the original images show that yes I used tools to enhance what I shot. I could have saved myself a lot of money by monkeying around with filters in PS, yet, I am focused on becoming the professional I know I am. Does that make sense?

      And yes I did change the name of my blog. Bless you for noticing. The “Connection” I am plugging into lately is beyond what we can see, feel, touch, in our 3D reality. During a conversation with hubby, the words that came from him rocked me for it was as though God was speaking. The words “Connecting beyond” among others were said, and my Heart immediately recognized them as what I really am doing both in my photography and what I write. Higher Energy is being channeled through me. I know it. I feel it. And thus, my new blog name.

      SO happy you enjoyed this post. (clearing throat) I had “you” in mind when I wrote it. (big smile) And as I told someone, I did something yesterday that I had put off for 2 years. We ALL at times procrastinate. LOL (((HUGS))) XOXO

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, John. My usual is when something needs doing, I just do it. I do admit, however, that I do procrastinate at times. Overall, though, I’ve learned life really is quite short and many times IF we don’t do what we can today, it just doesn’t get done. Thank YOU for your thoughts!!

  3. M mind was suspended in the ‘other world’ that you so magically bring to me, my breath slowed down to a delicious nothing. The reds in your picture talk to me of how beautiful and clearly evident Truth is, yet how much of a contrast it can bring to the white comfort zone that I might tend to slip in – it is a bold beautiful awareness. Gorgeous pictures dear Amy!

    1. Your comment left me stunned for you are describing what I myself feel when I am out taking these pictures, merging my spirit with the other World. The reds have really been pulling at my eyes this year and I am deliberately intensifying them with a special filter I use with my lens. Thank you for interpreting a new way for me to see the white snow against the contrast of the reds and why. I read your interpretation several times! I am SO happy you enjoyed this post, Pragalbha. Bless you! XOXO

    1. You are welcome, George, about the reminder. I have “gadgets” I use to get that snow white and I overexpose as well. I am having so much fun when the skies’ light reading is about the same as the grounds’ reading. Thank you for stopping by to view this post.

    1. Hi, Joey! See? Same message! Is that not unreal? Anyways, as I explained to someone else (maybe x 2 or 3) I’ve purchased a red intensity filter that I am using on my lens to purposely get those reds to pop out. And what a job this filter is doing! For some reason, the reds have been pulling at my eyes this year. Thank YOU for taking the time to stop by and appreciating my post. Bless you! Have a wonderful day today! 🤗🤗🤗

  4. we can not prevent negative thoughts from coming (sometimes) to rot us because we do not live pleasant things (whatever they are).
    On the other hand what we can do is try to make small simple moments of life very pleasant like (the smell of coffee in the morning, a ray of sunshine …).
    Sometimes you have to be really strong to survive.
    What is important too is >>> to know how to remain oneself.

    ps: for photos, I thought they were very clear, but it is not disturbing with the snow.

    1. Yoshimi, bless your Heart for what you said in this comment. Yes we all are human and yes negative thoughts do come, and so does procrastination at times, yet if we catch both the negative thoughts and the procrastination and turn both around to a positive, our life just becomes better because of those decisions. I also agree it is the little things in life that are important. Your example of coffee …. I absolutely LOVE the smell of coffee in the morning. In reading over your comment it sure sounds to me you have gained a lot of wisdom in your life and know it. Good for you for being aware! I’m so glad you enjoyed this post! May your day be a great one today! 💖

    1. You are absolutely correct about how excuses and procrastination are related. As I told someone recently I just did something I put off for 2 years and the excuses I told myself were just dumb. Now I feel SO much better because I finally did what I did. Thank you for commenting. 🤗

  5. Photography is an art and we enjoy the beauty of this art as we dive deep into the different frames and different shades of life. There is whole world out there for us to capture, just that we are caught in the maze of routines and awkwardly imprisoned with so much of negative thoughts. The positive in the picture gets blurred. And here you are with less light you have so masterly captured the beauty of nature, there is that play of twin colors, here it is the white and the red, and it comes out in prefect pairing. The pictures are so sublime. In photography it is the moment that matters, and we need to put all our focus in right perspective to get that perfect moment in our lens. There is a philosophical dimension to the art of photography, if we miss the moment we have missed it and we may have to wait only for another moment.

    Life is so much in the present but we either live in the past or plunge into the future, and let the present go casually unheard and we are so unmindful of our being. There is so much joy in the little things and by being there with these small things that keep happening around us, makes us happy and soaking with the solace and the joy it showers. We have become mechanized. We have taken things for granted. We are on the run. We want to catch it and interesting we don’t know what we want to catch. There is an illusion and we have become merged with the mirage.

    Procrastination is symptom of something else bothering or holding us back from doing what we should be doing, knowing well that once gone it is gone forever from our life…it was such a delight landing here and enjoying every bit of your magical weaving of words, wisdom, images and imagination. There is a subtle symphony and I so cherished that very orchestra…

    1. I couldn’t count the times I have read this most in-depth and perceptual comment you left for me to read. I by no means can even come close to matching all you expressed so eloquently and beautifully. You have described so much of what I am about and who I am in life, as I live and I blog all about THE MOMENT.

      Life for so many has become mechanical and truthfully, there are aspects of my life that are mechanical, in that, I do much the same every day. Yet throughout each day I make sure I get in my zone, in the MOMENT zone, by stopping by a window and gazing at Nature. Or curling up with one of my cats just to BE.

      I am deeply touched by your words. How you write is a Gift for within this comment are the very words I would have loved to describe what photography is to me. It is Sacred. It is a Relationship. It is Spacial. It is Special. And when you wrote “subtle symphony” in reference to the content found on my blog, well, my delight skyrocketed.

      Bless you, Nihar, for your glorious comment, one as such I do not get quite often. Deeply grateful I am to you. I will not forget what is written here for a long time. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart! I am so happy you enjoyed every bit of my “magical weaving of words, wisdom, images and imagination”. High praise I do consider this to be. 💝

      1. Dear Amy it was indeed such a delight to have landed in your space and there is that hidden joy ready to welcome with a bit of lovely surprise. I was pleasantly delighted.

        And when you said; “It is Sacred. It is a Relationship. It is Spacial. It is Special.” There was that wonderful choice of words and there was that connection in thoughts that got so effortlessly established and it was inherently so joyful.

        Life is so much in the moment and we keep cribbing about our past and peeping into the future and missing out seizing the moment that matters. And you do it so brilliantly and photography is such a lovely way to get creatively engaged with the moment. Just that we get swayed by the technicality of photography and miss the touch of sensibility that goes with the process of capturing those little moments of life that ultimately matters. The memories that makes us who we are and what we feed into our memory bank is entirely resides with us…all about being mindful of ourselves and the surrounding we live.

        I am so glad that my little thoughts resonates so well, and it so happens when good soul meets, only good things gains its momentum and there is magic.
        My pleasure to share thoughts and engage in such deeply profound conversation that can make us feel so much inspired and meaningful in what we do.
        Take care!!!

      2. No thought is “little” in my opinion. The thoughts you have shared with me have been amazing and truly appreciated by me. As for photography, it is my means to exit this mundanity found in 3D and transcend into a World of Wonder that surrounds all of us. However, many do not take the time to SEE this World and I must admit when I am rushing and very busy (and at times I am) this Special World I don’t see either. I have a post coming tomorrow that explains a little about me as a photographer and how I almost left my camera behind on a day I went to a park for a walk. SO glad I did not because some of the images I acquired with the permission of Mother and the tug of my Heart, left me breathless.

        You take care as well. Thank you so much for engaging in such meaningful conversation. So many people are in too much of a rush to have a conversation or on the other hand, many have forgotten how to have a real conversation (in person) due to technology. How sad to see so much interaction between people fading to nothing. Anyways … that is an entirely different subject. Another day, perhaps? LOL 🤗

      3. Indeed Amy it is a world of wonder, just that we have turned our blinkers on and not able to see the world as it is supposed to be seen. We have put our different hats of judging to assuming to projection to pretension and in the process we miss the essence of life.

        And the essence of life is so much in the glory of nature. We have distanced ourselves from nature and then blame the wrong things happening to us. Yes, the technology is connecting but it is silently injecting that disconnection with our own self. Also, there is so much talking happening between people but so true there isn’t any meaningful conversation. The art of good conversation is fast losing its shine and we are seeing the signs of gloominess dawning on us.

        Looking forward to your next post on photography and the way you so deftly connect the images with the words makes the reader like me so delighted to get engaged.
        Pleasure to share lovely thoughts with you and so much to learn.
        Thanks so much Amy.

      4. Learning is a two-way street, Nihar. As for my latest post, my pictures do not emulate what is written for the most part. Or perhaps they do. It all depends on the eyes of the viewer, I suppose. Have a great day and I look forward to more of your great conversations. ☺️

    1. Oh, Miriam. Thank YOU for the beautiful comment you left for me to read. Mother is my refuge. I get lost there. Time stops. I get caught up in a World that puts a spell on me. And as for the words found here … as I was looking at each image, the words began to come of their own volition. Yes, I live those words and understand why procrastination works against us, but, truly those words’ Source I believe to be my “muse”. I am just so honored you came by to read this and this post encouraged you. Many Blessings to you and BIG (((HUGS)))!!! 💞💞💞
