This week’s photo challenge with the Daily Post is called “Habit.”
I have plenty of those. But, like most people and like they say in the prompt post, most people don’t consider their habitual things photo worthy.
I walk or drive by a few places every day on my way to and from work, coffee, the movies and other places that I know are beautiful, but I really don’t take the time to enjoy them. This morning, in the midst of the first snow of the year, I opted to stop and take a few pictures of things that I see habitually.
I see this old fort, this department of national defence memorial display, these fences and trees every day. Every single day.
I am glad I am free to walk past them or drive past them and not have to worry about my safety and security. It is nice to stop and think for a bit. Habit shouldn’t take away thought or gratitude for freedom.
