Idle With a Chance For Flare

The theme for Theme Thursday is Idle. I knew that taking photos of the kids was out of the question. There is no chance of idleness there. So I decided to take a different approach. I have been trying to get some good flare shots and just have not been able to quite get it right. On Tuesday something clicked (no pun intended) and I finally captured some flare. I took these shots in our backyard. They are all SOOC (straight out of the camera).

When I look at these photos, I feel like time was frozen for a split second and I captured it. The theme this week is very timely. I know I need to slow down. I have too many things running through my head. Too many things I want to do and learn. What I really need to learn to do is enjoy the moment. Be idle for once.

Head on over to Stacy's and see if anyone else has been idle his week.

Great job! I love these sunflare shots. :) I know, trying to catch the kiddos being idle is like trying to win the lottery LOL!

I have a hard time being idle, too, the same as you. There is so much I want to do and learn and create. It's hard to just sit still and be.

I so know what you mean when it comes to taking idle pictures of the kids. They have to be asleep in order to get a picture of them being idle. Great outdoor shots. I agree with this idea too as mine is all about a rainbow this week.
