The little things

Sometimes we get so caught up with our schedules, families, friends, kids, etc that we don't take time to calm down, relax and appreciate the little things in life. What do I mean? Simple. Fresh air, sun light, drinkable tap water, food, etc.

Just observing these little critters makes me think that our lives can be as simple and meaningful as we want it to be. If we want success and an abundance of wealth, our minds can easily be consumed by them if we're not careful with our worldly desires.

We let the critters loose in the garden last week to have a fresh outlook of our garden. I guess they must have enjoyed it. Their newly developed noses are slowly taking in a whole new world of smells and sensations.

Last week, the critters were still pretty sleepy, resting every minute or so and spontaneously falling up to sleep wherever they were placed. Nowadays, they're very very active and its harder to keep them still even for a brief period of time.

Lets stop and smell the roses, and not let our busy lives take hold of us. Its worth it in the long run ;)

Cheers~

Amazing pictures Brandon ! Hope you've found a new home for some of your newborns, with pictures like these that shouldn't be too difficult (I'm in London so a bit too far I'm afraid). BTW I picked up the 50mm f/2 a while ago, partly based on your food shots. Enjoying that a lot.

This song "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong came into my mind when I see this series of shots. Love it!
