I Love Appreciating Life!

I love that a cactus isn’t only green! It can have an array of purples and magenta colours too.

As a photographer, I often capture images of places and objects for no other reason than the simple fact that I just love what I see. What I mean by that is, there is no predetermined intent for the photo to become included in my black and white fine art photography collection. However, with that said, I still find a colour photo absolutely fascinating. I feel that the expression of red rust on a sheet of steel blue metal is just as amazing as an Hawaiian sunset. Anyhow, because I value them, I felt I had to find a way to showcase them and what better way then under the premise that I offer them here. I love life, therefore I want to write it down in an appreciating journal. Also, since I’m a big fan of double meanings, I decided to lay the words out in a manner that would support the wording to be read in more than one way:

1. I Love Appreciating Life Journal
2. I Love Life - Appreciating Journal
3. I Love Appreciating - Life Journal

What I love about life:

Wild mountain grass photo for gratitude journal by Lausen Arts.
I love that I can go hiking on Cypress Mountain and come across tall, green, wild grass swaying in a gentle breeze, it actually appears like they’re waving a hello to me.
Pink dahila flower image on appreciating journals by Lausen Arts.
I love that when I look at the back of a pink summer Dahlia I can see that the base holding the flower up looks like a flower in its own right.
Eagle sitting in a tree. Photo on appreciation journal. By Lausen Arts.
I love that I can go for a walk with the expectation to only find a landscape photo, but instead have an eagle land on a tree branch right in front me unexpectedly.
Photograph of a highway at sunset. Appreciation Journal by Lausen Arts.
I love road trips that end with a sunset. Taken after a fantastic weekend in Sedona, AZ.
Highway in the back country. Appreciation Journal by Lausen Arts.
I love that when the going seems all downhill, that just ahead there’s always an upward slope.
Photography of a sailboat. Textured finish. Appreciating Life Journal by Lausen Arts.
I love that when we sail, we purposely long for moments when we have no choice but to feel our way.
Bamboo photo for appreciating journal by Lausen Arts.
I love that I can come across a bamboo forest in the middle of a city.
White daisy on log. Appreciating Journal by Lausen Arts.
I love that a fallen log near a river bank can become an instant support for a little, wild, white daisy flower that also has fallen.
Two pipes photo for an appreciating journal by Lausen Arts.
I love that when pipes are seamed together, the end result can look so riveting.
Gratitude Journal by Lausen Arts
I love how warm my bare feet felt against the black volcanic rocks that were paving a garden path in Hilo, Hawaii.

I love how transparent a spring Hyacinth’s pink petals can be just after they bloom.
Gratitude Journal by Lausen Arts
I love knowing that when a pinecone was sitting on its home-base, before it decided to fall to the ground, it was actually sitting on what looks to be a beautiful green flower.
