Observations

To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...

I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

That is definitely something I've been learning lately...when you look around with a camera in hand, sometimes you see things you wouldn't ordinarily see other times! LOL!

Wow, that is so true. I'm not in any way shape or form a pro at photography... But somehow the presence of my little digital camera makes me look at things differently and I've come to appreciate the small things in life just simply for their detail and beauty. For instance, Flowers are so much prettier now than they were before I dipped my toes in the hobby of photography. I just KNOW that cameras were originally God's idea :)

Wow, Britt just completely stole my comment!! I was coming here to comment on that very thing! Photography, on top of it being terribly fun, has SO opened my eyes to the intricacy of God's creation!

I agree wholeheartedly! It's so true. There's a difference when you look at something ordinary with a camera! Great picture of the tomatoes! :)

Hi Beth! Enjoyed seeing all the photo's, etc.
When you were in Bridger, either Rachel or Ruth asked me about a dress patern I was wearing, & I finally have the info here... :) It's a McCall's # 3129. If you could pass that on to them I'd appreciate it!
We're back in Michigan now...Have a great day & keep up the awesome posts! :) God bless, Love, Linda
