At my yoga class last week, we were talking about being in the present. So much of the time we are caught up in thinking about what has happened in the past or worrying about what might take place in the future.
One way to remain in the present is to pay attention to our surroundings, to look closely and notice all the details, the sights, sounds and scents that we all too often take for granted.
This last weekend, while out for a walk, I tried to pay attention to the world around me rather than being wrapped up in my own thoughts. As always, this was much easier said than done, but I found taking photographs was a good way to focus my mind on what my yoga teacher would call " the here and now".
A few photographs of the details - flowers as usual, I've always loved wild flowers.
