You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need
— Rolling Stones
I’m not a big Rolling Stones fan, but the chorus is running through my head on an infinite loop this morning.
You see, yesterday I went for a walk. It was a gorgeous day, and I took a walk around the little lake on the property where I work. Inspired by my Singapore lily pad images, I wanted to see what I could capture with the water. I desperately wanted to get closer to these lily pads, to get rid of all off the surrounding stuff, but without hip waders or a zoom lens that was not going to happen. Frustrated, I took a couple of frames with my iPhone and moved on.
I realized this morning: I couldn’t get what I wanted, but I got what I needed.
Beauty, peace, tranquility. The perfect image to edit and share today.
I hope you all have a great weekend! If you have a chance, come over and say hi to me and the Bhoomies today.
