Weekly Photo Challenge: Hidden
Playing fetch with the pups, I was trying to figure out what in the world I was going to try to capture for this week’s challenge, “Hidden”. Miss Stella raced under the butterfly bushes right next to the deck and I bent down to grab a tennis ball when I noticed this little surprise. Indeed it was hiding. There is nothing but dirt, mud, and darkness under the deck. Right?
I started to wonder about how often I may have overlooked something hiding in the shadows that even if very simple, could be beautiful. What if some of the most important and meaningful moments we are to gather are actually hidden or just under the surface? To think that I believed there was only dirt, mud, and darkness beneath the deck boards, yet really there is life and even beauty. How much have I missed in this life that was hidden by my inability to see beyond barriers I had put in place myself?
