Daily Walks (Noticing – June 30th, 2012)

Back when I really dove into photography, I tried to get out every day to practice, like a musician.  This habit fell away though; before I made the full time jump I was just too busy to keep at it, and after I was just too busy running the business.   We’re four months in now, things are going well and we’re beginning to really settle in.

I’ve been thinking this last week how I miss my practicing, my time spent noticing,  and now that things aren’t so hectic I’ve also made a regular habit of walking first thing in the morning.  I thought it would be fun to start a small thing on this blog, to carry my camera with me in the mornings and post an image of things I notice during the walk.  No promises, as the business ebbs and flows I’m sure there will be days when I can’t get to it.  I’ll certainly give it a good go though.

So here’s the first one.  We’ve had quite a lack of rain here in Central Indiana this summer, and this dry spell was finally broken with thunderstorms that came through yesterday and this morning at 4AM.  I couldn’t sleep through the lightning and thunder and it was with a foggy brain that I saw this leaf over a wet crack that looked like a bolt of lightning.
