Whenever I take a pic, whether on a real camera or my smart phone, I am always thinking of the perspective of
the "shot". I always seem to be looking for the best angle and best lighting and best composition and... the list goes on. This morning as I was dipping under the dew-laden limbs of the old shagbark hickory tree AND as I was swaying back & forth behind the pines AND as I was crouched down alongside the remains of the corn stalks in the field AND as I was slow rotating to get a good panorama of my view... it occurred to me:
I don't seem to think twice about working a little extra hard
to find, see & capture the good in my photos.
But, do I put nearly that much effort into
finding, seeing and capturing the good in the people & situations
I encounter each day in my life.
That thought reminded me, well it challenged me, to be more intention to look for the good. ... to capture the good... in everything and everyone around me.
