Today is the first day of the A to Z Challenge for the month of April, and I will be writing about looking aloft. I grew up in the mountains, and always found myself looking up at the sky and the pine trees above, so when I moved down to the Inland Valley, I continued to look aloft. My opinion is people get way too caught up in rushing around, and they never really take the time to experience the beauty around them. I believe looking at trees and mountains can be quite soothing, so looking aloft at the top of pine trees in the mountains, and palm trees in the city is quite inspiring. Actually, many of my photographs inspire my artwork, so taking pictures of things I enjoy looking at is crucial for me.
