One Never Knows What is Around the Corner!

Awaiting us in Treviso, Italy ~  I was invited to stay with dear friends and neighbors in a farmhouse they rented for ten days.  It was located outside Padova, Italy, an hour from Venice. Each day they'd map out a route with a few towns to explore. What fun we had! Arriving in the town of Treviso, I was so excited to see these plastic statues all over the place! Blue penguins placed in balconies, Pink and Green Bears standing in the street, some waiting patiently to be placed. Pink Dolphins were being strung across the narrow width of the Street throughout the whole block! It was just another great find, especially for me, the obsessed "just one more shot" photographer!
~Later that night there was to be a Fundraiser to benefit a local Children's Hospital in the Street!
~What fun, what marvelous finds with favorite friends!
~What more could I ask for when in Italy...a visit with the Pope...only kidding...I doubt that would happen...

There is Another Way! Just Try It...

"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery of a detour" --author unknown

WOW, I so enjoyed seeing this quote earlier today!  I remember watching a wonderful video years ago, and the message was ~ If you travel miles to photograph this great scene and it's not that great rolling, full waterfall, perfect light that you've seen before and expected....just turn around!  By seeing something another way, you just might get an unexpected, beautiful shot!  I was soo impressed with this concept, and thought to myself how many businesses, bosses, and people in general might gain so much from thinking out of the box, that there just might be another way to see or do something.  How simple....There is Another Way!
