One reason I love photography is that it forces me to slow down and look around, to truly see what is around me. I know I talk about mindfulness a lot here, but it is because I need to remind myself constantly;) My default mode is "hamster wheel", always looking ahead, always planning the next moment. Then I see something and think, I have to get my camera. And suddenly I am right there. Present in the moment. It is the best form of meditation I know.

P.S. For those who are interested, I used Kim's Grey Day Slate texture on this image.
