My friends band played the other day and the show was a little over a mile away from my house. Since my wife was at work with the car, I decided to walk.
It was cool outside and the sky was clear. The sun was calm and collected and unlike most Florida days, it was enjoyable to be outside.
I had my camera on me and was determined to make the most of my time on foot.
What I noticed at first did not seem out of the ordinary. Things like the neighbor's car that never moves, shadows, and the fact that some streets have no sidewalks.
Eventually I got to a home where tucked just behind trees was a lake. The view between the trees was so small that if I hadn't been walking I'm certain I would have missed it.
This leads me to wonder how much in a given day we miss out on. So much of our lives are spent speeding from place to place, hands gripped to our steering wheels and eyes stuck on the road. There's beauty in the slowest of days–I am certain of this–and I saw it all around me on this sweet Florida afternoon.
