Life is full of hard times and serious moments. For that very reason, it’s important to remember the silly and lighthearted side of life to keep a healthy balance. Spring on the farm can be nail-biting at times. Lots of spring plans begin this time of year and with few flowers to sell, juggling the books can be quite a project (thank goodness we have Mom!) The projects are endless and working with less than ideal weather adds a whole other stress factor. Add that to all the other strains of entrepreneurship and it’s easy to get bogged down in all the seriousness.
I was feeling a good bit of that serious stress earlier this week. With a wedding show to prepare for I ordered some flowers and handed off the camera to capture a few shots of some blooms. It wasn’t long until the studio was filled with flowers, laughter, and lots of candid image captures. I sat down to review them and had to laugh at all the bloopers. For every GOOD picture we capture around here there are thousands that don’t make the cut. Here are a few of my favorite outtakes. Hopefully, this serves as a nice reminder to find the silly…and LAUGH.
