The Wonder of Nature

“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”  ~Albert Einstein~

Sometimes I want to see the world through little eyes; to be captivated by the very notion of life.  Today we took a walk on a favorite greenway.  Before we began, I told the little boys that if they spotted something that they’d like to photograph that I’d hand over my phone.  The eldest took a few, but was much too busy to think about capturing his explorations in a lens.  The youngest, however, asked for my phone maybe a hundred times.  Trees, water, sky, moss…he took it all in and left me in silent adoration of his eye for the simple beauty of nature.  I took a sample of his pictures, added filters (because filters are merely a handy way to add the vibrancy of life back into the dullness that the lens omits), and voila.  Wonder.
