As I was “flicking” through photos on my phone, I realized that all of the photos I captured with my phone this week were shot while I was in conversation with others…
An abandoned home while chatting with my hubby during our morning drive:
An expiring dragonfly while one of my students was sharing a profound spiritual experience:
My favorite image of the week–wires and lines while chatting with the same student and a colleague after grabbing lunch:
The pretty butterfly, part of the Christmas decor adorning the banister outside my office as a conversation with another student was ending.
I was fully tuned in to each conversation when these images literally grabbed my attention, but I imagine it must be (at least) slightly annoying to have a conversation with someone who pauses or slows her step during conversations to take a shot at something that catches her eye. So “thank you” to everyone who accepts me and my camera (or iPhone) and understands that those pauses to consider the little things provide necessary balance for an often too busy life.
