You Capture: serene

Oh, how I’ve missed You Capture! Thursdays just haven’t been the same around here. But with my lack of energy and propensity to hurl at any moment, I haven’t exactly been feeling creative with my camera lately.


Yesterday morning, I was washing dishes in the kitchen when I realized things had suddenly become TOO quiet. I snuck a peek around the corner and discovered Small Fry playing by herself, sitting in the sun. It was one of those moments that made me realize how much she’s growing and how peaceful she can be … if even just for 15 minutes. Bliss.

So, of course, I snatched my camera and fired off a few shots.

Later in the day, I hopped onto Beth’s blog, and the theme for this week’s You Capture stopped me in my tracks: Serene.


I took it as a sign from the universe to get back into the swing of things with photography. It’ll be a nice distraction from feeling green, at the very least. I love escaping into my camera.

Any serene moments in your life this week? Even if it was just a glimmer, share it with us!
