“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

 
 While walking home from the cinema, I noticed the sun reflecting on the very corner of a building - with the lines of the building and the lines of the fence, I thought it made a interesting composition. Then I noticed the gum tree reflected in the glass.

It's worth taking the time to walk, as on even familliar routes there is always something new to catch your eye. A tiny bee, busying itself on a flower becomes a thing of interest and beauty if you pay enough attention to the detail.
This mural was perfectly reflected in the window as I walked past, as if a giant was living in the house.

There is a peace to be found in the small pleasures around us. Focus on the little things and the pressures of the big things fall away into the background of a centre of calm. 

"Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those meadow flowers which individually seem odorless but all together perfume the air". Georges Bernanos
