The attention span of a goldfish…..

November 1st, 2011

I’m easily distracted. I sometimes have to be prompted to finish my sentences. I daydream. A lot. According to Ian, I have the attention span of a goldfish. After all these years, I’m still looking for a compliment, that must be hidden within that statement.

As I sit here looking through photo’s and trying to clear out my Lightroom catalogue, I’m listening to Craig Armstrong and letting my mind wander.

I wasn’t supposed to be clearing out Lightroom….or looking through photo’s. But I got distracted.

…or rather, I found something else better to do, than what I should be doing.

…Otherwise known as procrastinating.

But I found all these images from a few months ago. Some have been blogged, and some haven’t.

But they reminded me of the simple things that I love about photography, and how much I love going out with my camera, and getting lost in the moment. I’ve not had much time for that lately, and when I find images like these, I realise how much I miss it.

During the summer months, I love photographing flowers. I love that feeling of getting so consumed in something, that I don’t notice anything else around me.

Gone are the vibrant summer colours and long summer evenings, but here to replace them are the crisp autumn leaves, and that chill in the air.

Tomorrow I get the chance to go and breathe it all in and capture the warm autumn colours. A day with my camera, and good friend Chrissy Mathew. This day is long overdue.

Here’s to distraction, and having the attention span of a goldfish….. :)

    Beautiful post. I’m just like you, short attention span. I think it could possibly be a blessing in disguise :) These photos make me happy, by the way.

      Thank you. Sometimes it’s frustrating though! I wish I could just ‘be’ instead of having to do something all the time! ;0) x
