The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.

“Imagine, for example, birds. When they look out at the world, they have a sense that they are alive. If they are in pain, they can do something about it. If they have hunger or thirst, they can satisfy that. It’s this basic feeling that there is life ticking away inside of you.”

Morning Greetings: 30 September 2021

Good morning friends,

30 September 2021, the last day of September has arrived. I had so many plans for September. I wanted to go hiking, and practice taking landscape photos with my new lens. I wanted to recce some locations in order for me to start with my landscape photography assignment. Then Covid happened and well I am still not completely recovered.

The time to do my assignment is getting very short now. I need to submit my assignment by 20 December 2021. I still need to go and recce the locations and then plan my photos. I have no idea when this will happen.

It is a beautiful morning outside and according to the weather forecast we are having a beautiful Spring day. A maximum temperature of 24°C is predicted.

On my To-Do List for today

  • Edit pageant photos👸
  • Prepare Dinner🍲

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am truly grateful for all the views, likes, follows and comments I get.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

🤗Big Virtual Hug 🤗
