Paying attention

As the sun sets

Trailing behind a scarf reflected in the water —

Breathe in and out.

And pay attention to the those small golden moments.

If there is something Oscar has taught me, it is this:

The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention to the small details of life.

Summer is short and the sun calling my name, so linking up to: Camera Critters.

  4. A beautifully serene scene, Fi. Your comment is a timely reminder: in the crazy pace of life it is so easy not to slow down and enjoy golden moments (… and I’m retired!) – but then again, photography does help one to do just that. Thanks for sharing your wonderful photography and gorgeous Oscar with us again.

  6. My husband and I are debating getting a dog. Every time I see a photo of Oscar I show him and say “If I could have a great dog like this, I’d have one in a heartbeat.”
