Daily life

Today I wasn't feeling well. I think a small flue lies in wait for me. Flue always reminds me of my childhood... when I was ill my mother used to make me a bed on the couch. This way I could stay with her all day and sleep in between :)

As a young child I was a real dreamer who loved to stay at home while the other children were playing outside. I could spend hours looking at little insects and flowers. Life was one great discovery and I still have the feeling that there is so much more to reveal.

I love the beauty of the daily life and in times when I am ill they comfort me with their beauty. While lying on the couch the living room suddenly seems different and normal items become special.
It feels like every little thing has a secret life that reveals itself when you place it outside its daily location. In a different light or with a new background it will look completely different and intriguing again.

When you look at things at close quarters they will show their beautiful details and hidden colours. I love the feeling I get when I look at a macro from a daily life item. Like looking at it for the first time.

So far this post for today, I loved to share today's "flue discoveries" with you and I hope you enjoyed it too. Have yourself a lovely revealing day and take care :))

Sas, hope you feel better soon. I think we are soul sisters. I've always been intrigued by the beauty of the mundane, and it seems I am always discovering.

Since I've been carrying my camera with me, I feel like I am a tourist in my life.

I love your pictures of the sardine cans and the safety pins.

Such a heart warming and delightful post. Reminded me of childhood too...lovely days; sigh! Nowadays I look at life, people, things all in macro mode (in my mind and thru my camera) way to stay sane...:))
Beautiful photos.
Hope you feel better soon. Sending you some healing energy. Take care

dear Sas,
I hope you get well soon and won't be paralized by a dreadful cold or flu. Enjoying every day objects is much nicer when your head isn't blocked. Make yourself a warm nest in a comfy couch and let a loved one take special care of you, good remedy.
