Tuesday

Take Time

Do you ever feel like time is passing quickly... like a freight train at full speed?


I feel like that a lot...... so sometimes I just have to slow down.

Take a minute today.... to rest, pray, meditate, or just close your eyes and relax.







You never know what you might see :)

i love the top b/w image. i'm drawn to photos like this - ones i cannot take myself due to geographical location, so i really appreciate them. i've added you as a link so i can keep dropping in. :-)

I love the little female cardinal - we have one for several weeks who hangs out on our window ledge at work.

thanks for your comment on maggiegracecreates.

have a great day.

Good post! Good advice and good pictures. I love the train. Our pastor said recently in one of his sermons that in the end times everyone will be rushing around. I believe it.

lovely weaving of photographs and sentiments. it IS quite amazing what we see if we take the time to slow down... a good message that our culture needs to embrace....

Lori said...

That's very good advice and great photographs to go with it!

Lori said...

Thank you for all of your nice comments at my site. :-)

Time does move by so quickly...and I don't like it! I always try to see things through new eyes each day and it's amazing all of the beautiful things around us that are lovely in their simplicity.

What a nice post today, we all need to take some time, it goes by so quickly..
And thanks for the stop over and yes i am feeling a lot better

A fine series of shots. I like the mix of B&W and color, but the best is the flow of the theme throughout the images. Fine conception of what to say...and how to say it!

happyone said...

Great advice we should all listen to and take.
Love all the photos.

Rick said...

Nice shot of the NS Dash-9 Locomotive...It is a lesson for us all..sometimes you just have to jump instead of waiting for the "merry go round" to slow down.

Sure be true there Kerri,The older one gets the quicker time flies.

Ilike the way you planned this out, great photos and sound advice.

Max-e said...

Nice post Kerri.
I always say we need to take time to stop and smell the roses, otherwise we get stuck on the hamster wheel of life.

Salty said...

You are so right! Everyone is in a hurry, for what? I'm taking this week to spend in our mountains photographing wildlife and it has been great so far.

Loved you latest post! Your photographs are terrific!

MedaM said...

Beautiful series of photos and really good and useful advice to all of us who don't know how to slow down.

Andrea said...

Great pictures. Great post. Great advice. We all need to slow down and enjoy life more. Life is too short as it is.

I was just thinking that last night as I scrolled through my digital pictures over the past five years or so.

It's amazing really, how quickly time goes by.

Until you try to use iPhoto on a Mac, and then life grinds to a painful stand still, what a piece of crap.

To one who observes, the world really does share its secrets, no?

Kerri, I like your use of progression from one picture and comment to another. the bird singing for you at the end is aperfect ending for the stressful day.

Ricardo said...

Poe Thank you teach these places so picturesque.
Greetings

Great words of advice. I enjoyed the photos. Very nice.

Lovely photos!

NorthBayPhoto said...

Great photo story!

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. Perhaps the "Dead Slow" sign I posted should be taken to heart more than just an instruction for the boaters.

DaveM said...

Thanks for visiting. I like your single leaf shots. Great photographs.

GAWO said...

Thank you for your nice comments.

I like your b/w image.

Kerri,
That train is my favorite.

As far as "Selective Color" goes, you really need full blown photoshop to do it easier, but it can be done in elements.

The kind of SC that I usually do, involves taking a color image and a black and white copy of it, laying the B&W over top of the color and deleting whatever I want color from the B&W so the color shows through. Make sense?

I use the pen tool in PS which Elements doesn't have. You can use the eraser though, but it gets tricky and tedious at the edges of stuff. The pen tool gives me the exact control that I need.

I hope that helps a little?

ASH's Eye said...

Excellent set of photographs, Kerri. I really identify with what you're saying, that when you're busy it really helps to slow down and just notice the world around you!

Annie said...

I took your advice. I lay down and watched a movie behind my eyelids today. Gee, it was nice.

Faye Pekas said...

I absolutely agree. There is so much to see when we take the time to stop and look. Love your birdies. We don't have any like those.

Thanks for caring and for your kind comments on my blog Kerri.

Jill said...

Great advice! I need to listen. Nice shots btw.

Mike said...

Hey I love that train shot!

JAM said...

Wonderful series of photos and thoughts. I love the final "I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille," look on the cardinal's face.

Ms. Math said...

Your blog is one of those things that helps me slow down and take a few minutes to just breathe and enjoy some beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing not only your photos, but your uplifting and encouraging words.
