Cindy - Florida 9:25-10:30 AM

I had no expectations to find anything interesting on my walk today. I thought I would take Lucy with me. That turned out to be not such a good idea. Too many distractions out there in the big wide world for a young pup. So, I turned around and brought her home.On this walk, I found myself doing a lot of quick dropping to one knee, looking up and clicking. I will consider this doing two exercises at once, walking and squats:)! The collage below includes various Crepe Myrtles, Palms and a grapefruit tree.
This next group of photos consists of plants and foliage that caught my eye. The caladium shot is for Hayley, hearts in nature:-)!
I love these three wise old trees!I thought it would be fun to include a collage of all of the pictures that I took on my Creatively Fit walk today. Sometimes it's fun to see the rejects too!

Not too bad for starting out feeling completely uninspired!
I hope everyone finds some inspiration on their walks today!
Have a great day!

Love your sky-flower shots! Very very pretty. I think you should give Lucy another shot. The only way she will get used to the walk is to get out and do it.

I think it could be totally YOU AND LUCY time! As she got more familiar with it, she would start to be a motivator for you. You could even teach her to grab her leash on command to go for a "walk and click."

I also love your all-encompassing collage. I may start to do that often. Day 30 is coming up soon. I may do two collages of 15 of my favorite shots (1 from each day).

Keep walking!!

I love the one of the sun and the palms. The sun looks so huge!! My boys and husband would love to have a dog... but I know I'd be the one taking care of it, so I keep vetoing it! Maybe if I ever think I'd like to have another kid, I'll get a dog instead. ;)
