Maybe it's just me, but that's what I envision going through their minds as they drive off with that raised eyebrow and pursed lips. How dare you, lady... you made me care and I stopped for nothing! People! I'm just taking a picture of NATURE. You know, that thing that's all around us?! You remember hearing the old saying, "Stop and smell the roses" don't you? Well, I stop and take pictures of them. I'm not doing anything wrong and I certainly don't mean to make you go out of your way. You shold be thankful that I'm ok and you don't have to get your hands dirty with some problem that's not yours. Unless you just wanted glory for being the hero, in which case, you're not stopping for me, you're stopping for you, so quit wasting both of our time and get over yourself.
And when you think that I'm taking pictures of "nothing", here's the "nothing" that I see:
|This was such an interesting looking tree, |
simple beauty seeming to be growing
in the middle of overgrown crap.
|This is a close-up of the tree above|
These are just a sample of my most recent photography. I hope you enjoy and I would love to hear what you think about them. (constructive criticism only please)
Don't forget to stop and smell the roses once in a while. Smell them, take a picture of them, sketch them, but don't pick them... leave them where they grow in order to share them with others who come along the same path.
Look around you. There's beauty everywhere!
