Twisted trunk beckons.
My intrigue often misses
beauty in shadows.
I take lots of photos. Of “stupid stuff” my older son says 🙂
I do have many delete-worthy images, but I keep them because I never know if one day I will look at them and see something different. A sort of second chance to recognize what I couldn’t see at the time. (Or maybe I need to justify my pack-rat tendencies!)
Take this tree, for instance. When I took the photo, the subject was the very obvious twisted trunk. I’m always fascinated when I see the lengths nature takes to thrive. (Same with people. I’m inspired by those who rise when they have every right to crumble.)
Anyway, back to the tree. I wish I could claim to have noticed the shadows on the ground, but that would be a lie. I didn’t see that until much later. I like to think that I walk around with my eyes open, ready to see what I haven’t seen before. Truth is, I still get distracted by the obvious.
Have a beautiful weekend. May you find beauty in the unexpected!
