Unwinding


Finally a few days off - to relax, take photo walks and have the time to notice even the small things around me. 

I spotted this little guy on a walk this morning. Normally, I'm not such a huge fan of snails (although I admire their houses), but detecting this one somehow felt like the epitome of unwinding. It just made me happy and I thought it would be ideal for Lisa's Creative Exchange.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great start into the week.

I love this Rosie!
Being able to capture him on the leaf shows just how small he really is!
You sure had your eyes open for this one!
I am so glad you are getting some downtime my dear friend!

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

I wish you a wonderful day!

I don't like snails much either, Rosie, but you managed to frame this one so nicely that it looks really cute. So glad you have some time for R&R!

Gorgeous!! I like snails - but more so the escargot kind (in garlic! LOL) Great shot!

Nancy said...

I would have totally missed this. You have a good eye! Great photo to demonstrate a slower pace today. :)

What a find - for some reason, I think snails are cool....but only when I have a camera!

So sweet, Rosie......I'd love to paint a miniature of this one if you'd give me permission.

What a beautiful shot!

It may be small, but it still makes big holes.
Having to demolish between 2 and 4 thousand snails each season, I am not too enamoured either :-)
You must have been extremely relaxed to feel comfortable in its company today.

This is beautiful Rosie, I haven't seen one of those in a long time. Enjoy your time off...sounds like you have a stressful career like me!

Don't you find that photography has really helped you notice more things? Love your little snail. What a great find!

I love this shot of the tiny snail, Rosie! It may be a garden pest, but this one is cute!

As snails go...this is a sweet one. The relaxation obviously helped your vision-I likely would have missed this little leaf lounger.
