I cannot take credit for these beautiful photos. My husband Pete has an eye for the minuscule moments in life too. He has a gift to see beauty in places where no body looks.
When we moved from the suburban sprawl, sold our house, gave up good paying jobs to live life on a dairy farm. I will admit it was not easy at first. I am lucky no one told me about the spiders the size of dinner plates, the snakes that like to come inside and the not so talkative neighbours (COWS). I would not have come. Sometimes we don’t actually know what we need. BUT if you follow your gut and take a few risks, you might end up living in paradise. Well paradise with added extra’s. You only have to look at these pictures to see that nature inspires Pete in so many ways.
I am in awe of his photos, no supersonic camera, just a good eye and the right time of day. He is my soul mate the one person who challenges me but most of all believes in my crazy dreams. He encourages the illustrations, the mad writing and my hope of success one day.
How could I not flourish living with someone who sees the world like he does. We inspire each other and there is always a healthy competition to see who can get the best photo of the day. I have to admit (shh) he wins every time.
If you like Pete’s pics be sure to stop by his Facebook page Harvestmoon and tell him I sent you. He also takes many photo’s of the cows on the dairy too.
I know when we retire one day our dream is to go on a holiday with camera’s, paints and a blank canvas or two.
To know such a man who loves nature and the simple life even more than me is a blessing. When I day-dream about winning the lottery and buying my home (with a large art/writing studio), he says I already have everything I need. When I think about it, I mean really think about life and how precious it is, I know I already have everything I need too.
Live in the microscopic moments, open your eyes and appreciate dew drops on a spider’s web. Tiny glass balls suspended in time, only for an instant and then they are gone.
How about you, do you have everything you need?
