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.
