the search for a picture

finding a good moment or image to capture does not have to be a struggle.  it’s all in the way you choose to see the world.  find something you initially view as ordinary, and look at it from a different angle.  perhaps from an ants view.  or a bird’s eye view.  perhaps you put your eye above and look down.  when you are walking around, look up and explore what lies above you.  there is so much beauty around us that we can so easily miss.  don’t take the expected photo.  try a different approach.  soon you will begin to observe the world and all it has to offer in a different way.  things you never would look twice at may become beautiful in your eyes.  you’ll find art in places you never thought art could exist.  at least that has been my experience in the last few years since taking up photography.

give it a try.

here are the things i saw on todays walkabout.  same neighborhood as always, different views of the things around.  there is always a new picture if you look from a different angle.
