Looking at lines

A few weeks ago we were out in the country and I was out shooting for myself for fun.  For the first time in a while I took a minute to stare out at the ocean to watch the natural lines of the water and the and way it flowed in and out of the shore.  I'm always so rushed and rarely have time to just sit there and take it all in.  I used to go to the beach to think and enjoy the quiet and being there this time I realized how much I miss those moments.  Back in the city that week I was in a rush to get somewhere when I stopped at a corner and looked up.  The lines of these buildings downtown made me think of the organic, fluid curves of the ocean.  I thought about how lucky I was that in less than 48 hours I had the chance to witness two such beautiful and opposing elements - one obviously natural and the other man made - and how they formed part of my world.  I'm into taking the time to recognize that lately and having that awareness has made me much happier.  You should try it.
