10 on 10 March | Just See Things

We stayed overnight at a friend’s ranch. It isn’t just any ranch – it’s 240 acres of beauty – rolling hills and stars so bright you can see clearly at night. Bliss.

For this 10 on 10, I practiced patience. I let go of the, “that would be a great backdrop” and “How can I use that tree in my shot?” I just saw and valued the here and now…  what was, and not what could be.

I found it was extremely therapeutic to let go, relinquish some control and “just see things” as they are and document that.

Here is a wee peek into our ranch sleepover.


Now head on over to Ashley Meiners blog for a little slice of AWESOME!
