What’s in a name?

What exactly are distracting details and why did I name my blog this?  Well, I’m glad you asked, I will tell you.  I am very easily distracted, even when focused on something I am easily distracted, whether it’s self inflicted or not.  As soon as that camera hit my hand it’s like a whole new world opened up, look at everything around me all of the details, all of the things to see.  There’s flowers, oh look rust, oh wait a rope, oh look someone left Starbucks cups on a brick wall (it’s happened…true story)…you get the idea. I want to capture all of the details. So, Distracting Details was born.  Aaaaaww, isn’t it cute?  🙂

Here’s a perfect example of said distractions.  While at the Mizumoto Japanese Garden in Springfield, MO, I spotted a heron, beautiful bird within touching distance. First thought is, snap on a new lens and get to taking pictures of it.  It decided to out wit me and fly over to another little  island, that didn’t stop me I just walked over to the little island and tip toed ever so quietly across the little bridge and tried getting pictures again….then oh look there’s a pagoda.

Rumor has it

A little birdie told me that today is the first day of Spring!  Spring! That means flowers, leaves, playing outside and color! The world will be filled with color again! This morning I thought of all of the botanical gardens I want to go to as soon as the flowers start  blooming.  It’s not that I don’t appreciate Winter and all it has to offer, but I miss the color, being outside, having the windows open and the fresh air.
