I'd like to thank y'all for your wonderfully sweet words on my last post. You comforted me more that you'll ever know. I'm still reeling with shock, and to know that you're all praying for his and my family means a lot to me. 

Yesterday, I needed a distraction from all of this, so I grabbed my camera and went outside. The sound of the shutter clicking was almost therapeutic. I could feel myself getting a bit better with each shot. Photography soothes me so. When I'm taking pictures, it's like I'm lost in my own little world, capturing God's beauty. I'm so very thankful that He has given me this talent (I'm sorry if that sounded that like I was bragging, I truly don't mean to!).

What soothes you?

I'm still planning on putting up a Happiness Is post tomorrow, along with a linky. I hope you play along ;)

PS I'm sorry if none of this really makes sense...it's 4:01 am right now (although, I'm scheduling this and you'll see it a couple hours from now.), and I'm still not quite awake...we're leaving for our trip in an hour.

  2. Sometimes when I'm frustrated or upset I'll take a walk through our woods. It's so quiet there.

  4. Beautiful pictures, Carlotta. I agree with what you said about the shutter clicking being soothing and being in your own little world. I'm pretty much the same way.

    And no, I don't think that sounded like bragging. :)

  6. What soothes me? Going outside in the sunshine with a drawing pad and a pencil. Sitting on top of our old green fence in the meadow (which is very small) and sketching. :)

    P.S you are beautiful Carlotta. :)

  7. Beautiful photos --- I love the colors and the soft feeling of each of them. Nicely done. SO sorry to hear about your friend... so sad. I work for the American Cancer Society -- it is so hard to go through a cancer diagnosis and to lose someone to cancer. Please know that I am praying for the family --- sending strength. I have recently met this challenge myself - nancycancerjourney.blogspot.com

    Again - thanks for stopping by my blog --- I saw you on Blog Frog
