Have You Taken The Time To Look Closer?
May 06, 2022
From the warmth of my house I heard the 'ker-clunk' of waste being hoisted and dumped into the back of the truck. The sounds hit me like a ton of discarded bricks.
I had failed to take the garbage to the curb and I was almost out of time!
Rushing outside I was hit with the type of cold that empties your lungs, I was not dressed for this!
Scraping the frost off the handle of the green dumpster I wheeled it swiftly to the curb and that's when I saw my front yard, frozen beautifully in place.
I gasped, my breath clearly visible.
Taking the time to look closer I was suddenly transported from the lame daily tasks of life to a magical wonderland!
I rushed back inside to gather my camera and macro-lens and laid down on the frozen cement, fully committing to the cold.
The driver of the garbage truck passed, I couldn't help but think he probably thought I was a lunatic for laying on my driveway with hands frozen to the camera...
He would be right though, I am.
