As consumers of the 21st century, we are immersed in the synthetic. We want bigger, better, brilliant in our food, homes, jobs – every aspect of our lives. It’s easy to get caught up in the whir of all that is great and glorious and forget to -warning, cliché coming- stop and smell the flowers. Really though. How often do we actually stop, put down our mobile devices, and admire the natural beauty around us? For this week’s photo challenge theme, Vibrant, I chose this photo that I took at a public park of these jungle geraniums as a reminder that all which is vibrant does not always come with a price tag. Walk outside today, pause, and breathe in the vibrancy all around you.
