I could have walked for HOURS

As I headed out the door yesterday afternoon with The Gateway Mall as my final destination,
I wasn't intending to walk all the way there.

It's 2 miles one way.

I always take the camera... ALWAYS!

I also always try to take a different route,

Because I never know what I'm going to see...

and I'm always looking...

for what I'm going to see next.

Yesterday as I meandered my way thru Temple Square

and over toward the trax station,

I told myself I'd just walk to the next station, 2 more blocks

then ride the train the rest of the way.

This happened again as I approached each subsequent station.

Before I knew it...

I was almost there.

Standing in Larry Miller's rose garden

Directly across the street from my final destination...
and I could have kept on walking,
for hours.

~ ♥ CLOUDS ♥ ~

Clouds are among the most beautiful things in nature.

Remember when you were a kid? Laying on the lawn watching the clouds go by? I find myself doing this again as an adult. I look forward to cloudy days so I can sling my camera over my shoulder and watch as the clouds go by.

As the winds blow, the clouds change, and there is a pluthera of amazing different formations to capture with my lens. Sometimes I get blessed with a cloud casserole... some of everything all at once.

Of course my favorites are the sunrises and sunsets. They are like extra special gifts from god giving my day his blessing in the morning, and kissing me good night at the end of the day.

Sunrise and sunset... the blue sky... the beauty of a flower... colors... bees... all the wonderful things I see each day... I am so grateful that god blessed me with sight so that I can truly appreciate them.

I love the clouds! ♥
