Taking A Closer Look

26 Apr

It’s fascinating how changing the way a seemingly mundane thing is seen can shift ones attitude towards it. The photographs above were shot primarily to practice using macro at which I am very much a novice. However as I was looking at them later I was struck by how beautiful these extremely common flowers, some people would call them weeds, actually were, but I hadn’t noticed before simply because I never bothered to look due to their ubiquity. It made me wonder about all of the beautiful and amazing experiences I may be missing simply because I dismiss certain things as being too ordinary to bother about. So, now I’m trying to open myself up to the possibility of discovering the extraordinary in the ordinary.
