A Change of Scenery

Sometimes standing in the woods is the cure to so many ailments. Disappointments, for sure. After having a hard day last week, I got home from work, and almost immediately grabbed my camera and headed back out. We live right down the street from our city park. Acres and acres of untamed, wild woods and streams. There's always new nooks and crannies of it to explore. Growing up we lived in the middle of the woods, and I remember countless hours during the summers spent just wandering around through the trees, so I always feel at home in the woods.
It felt really cathartic to take some photos and focus my brain on more creative tasks, instead of letting myself wallow in the day, which is so easy to do. It's a great reminder that when things are feeling crazy, to just go. Give yourself a little change of scenery and work on something totally different. Don't sit and feel bad for yourself, do something different.
I also played with shooting some video too. It's been a while since I've dabbled, but I really enjoy it. It's such a totally different game, that it's fun to just experiment and see what I can come up with. It's definitely something I'd love to learn about (hint hint, those of you who are much more talented, I'd love to hear your tips! :) I still have some things I'm struggling with, but practice makes perfect, right?
