Small Town Hopping

Today I set out on a day trip, I needed to get out of the house and have some time with my camera. The first small town I went to was a flop, so we won’t mention that. I was a little crunched for time so I headed to Weston, MO.  Small towns are excellent places to get detail pictures and just watch the locals. There was a wedding going on today (the groom was gorgeous and the bride was beautiful) I wanted to sneak a picture of the bride, but I was too slow.  I also wanted to tackle the groom with my camera, but I was too busy staring with little hearts above my head. hehehe  Anywhooo….small towns.  Today I got some awesome detail pictures and I made a new friend that I named Cattitude, this cat just stared at me, then I pet it’s head and it became my friend, it (I wish it was easier to tell boy cats from girl cats) jumped up on the bench for more lovin’ and even gave me some attitude when I bent down to get it’s picture.  Also, in the first picture, see that balcony, that one in the front with the torn awning? I have claimed that as mine, I want to move in there, drink tea and watch the world go by…well, watch the small town go by.  And because I love benches, I left you a Weston bench too, there will be more benches to come on this blog of mine.

I also posted a couple other little pictures on my Instagram if you want to keep up with my posts that way.

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.
