The sun found a way through the rain clouds twenty minutes before my sons preschool finished. Twenty whole minutes to see details through my camera lens.
I looked up for clouds, birds, tree branches, details. Then out at eye-level in all directions for anything interesting, details. There were some beautiful spring blooms not too far. I thought I might catch some raindrops still clinging to their stalks, leaves or blooms.
After a few steps toward the blooms I looked down along the edges of the sidewalk and directly below at my feet, details. A puddle on the sidewalk, it was perfectly placed to reflect this storybook tree.
And time stood still
As it always does
I never made it to the flowers.
