30 Minutes in January: Slowing Down with Macro

Jan 30, 2017

The last few months of 2016 were so hectic for me.  I felt like I was constantly trying to do everything all at once and it made me crave starting a new year fresh.  But of course my “to do list” followed me into 2017, along with work travel and commitments with friends, photo sessions of babies and a wonderful long weekend with my sister visiting from out of town.  I heard that tiny voice within me screaming for me to slow down and take one thing at a time, enjoying each moment as it comes, not worrying about the next thing on my appointment calendar or to do list.  So for this month, I knew that spending a half an hour with my least-used lens (the 105 Nikon macro) and a beautiful orchid would do my mind and soul some good.  Here are the results:

 

Please don’t forget that I’ve been working on this “30 Minutes in the Life” project along with some truly talented photographer friends from around the world for the last several years.  Go check out their gorgeous posts from this month and show them some love:  click here.
