I was in a rush when I took this picture, and forgot to adjust my camera settings.
Initially, I was upset that I didn’t use the correct exposure…
but the more I looked at the results, the more I liked them.
Lately, I’ve come to appreciate how a busy life manifests itself.
There is a certain charm to the things that miss our attention.
When I look at the things I’ve neglected,
the textures and colors are quite beautiful.
Perhaps this is the Universe’s way of saying, “It’s okay if you don’t paint me today.”
If only Nature would put a patina on my gray hair…
