A lot of times, I’ll see something that catches my eye. It just looks picturesque. And my brain starts cranking over…there’s gotta be a way to capture that in a good photo. But often, I don’t try. Too inconvenient, too difficult. But today, I decided to try. And I’m glad I did.


Just Stop The Car

We live on a farm in the country. I drive down a dirt road everyday. This time of year, we get an awesome array of wildflowers (and weeds).

Today, while heading home, the orange and yellow flowers caught my eye beside the dirt driveway. They’re just displayed in abundance all along the barbed wire fence with its weathered posts. The sky, meanwhile, is all blue with floating storybook clouds.

Like I said. Picturesque.

I’ve been seeing these, and other flowers, for many days now. But today, in the early afternoon sun, the inner urge to try and capture the lovely scenery and showcase their small wonder was strong enough to make think, “just stop the car and do it.”

Actually, I both stopped and then backed up. I had driven past the prime spot while my brain internally quibbled whether or not to take some pictures.

So I grabbed my iPhone 7, which had been podcasting through my car speakers, and put it in camera mode. I simply snapped 4 photos only, not trying too hard. I figured they probably would not turn out great anyways.

I was content that I at least didn’t pass up the chance and, instead, just stopped the car and got out.


I don’t think these shots are gonna win me awards or make me some sweet moo-lah. But I think they’re very nice; I like them!

And I hope you like them too. Enjoy!
