Seeking Inner Balance


In an effort to establish inner balance I spent the day relaxing at a spa with my mom and sisters. No potty-training mishaps. No tantrums. No piles of laundry waiting to be folded. Just sweet relaxation. I'm feeling much more centered now, not so close to the edge, if ya know what I mean ;).

50mm, f/2.2, 1/160, ISO 800, set the white balance to cloudy for a warmer look.

In raw editing I sharpened and increased clarity and contrast. In Elements I added a border.
