Find beauty in the ordinary.

All too often we forget to take the time to slow down and enjoy the simple things. “Busy” has become an accomplishment, rather than something to avoid. We’re working so feverishly toward our goals that time flies by, and a year passes in the blink of an eye. We get lost in the monotony of the day-to-day routine, and we forget to slow down and actually enjoy the present (myself included).

This is one of the many reasons why I love photography. One instant, frozen in time. I usually prefer portraits, but I think these photos are particularly beautiful (I took them January 2012 on a trip to California). I love the feel, the texture, and the color. These objects are so ordinary that the beauty lies in their simplicity.
