I have been very happily stepping up to the May Photo a Day Challenge that an old co-worker was involved in. I like being forced with a deadline to jumpstart your creativity with a prompt. The task at hand today was to find something that captures a smell that you adore.
I love the smell of rain. It’s sort of hard to describe. The best way I can think of still falls woefully short of accurate, but I think it steers you in the right direction: it just smells green and fresh. I think it’s almost one of those things that almost eludes you, because you have to really pay attention to it, to breathe it in. I don’t think you smell it all the time, but I think you notice it the most on warm spring days when the rain has just begun. I could almost drink it in and feels so invigorating.
