Project 366: Day 257 Eye of the Beholder

Standard

I brought my camera with me to work, today. When I bring my camera with me, I pay more attention to the scenery that surrounds me during the ride to the boys’ school and my boss’ house. The boys will often make suggestions of scenery to photograph during the car ride, but I am unable to snap their suggestions because the car is moving.

This morning, while stopped for a prolonged period of time, I started taking pictures. “What’s pretty here?” Joe asked. “That won’t make a nice picture.”

Immediately, I thought of my friend Mike, who has a photo album on his Facebook page titled, “Things I find beautiful that most people probably don’t.”

Here’s to finding beauty in your surroundings – whatever the surroundings.

  1. I love to find the “shot” in the everyday. And when I’m driving I’ll often see one of these shots, and can’t stop to take a photo, much to my frustration. Love the slideshow today! And BTW, how did you make this and put it into your blog? I’d love to do the same some time.

    • You know, Jackie… this project has pulled my attention away from writing, which I miss. By the same token, I enjoying ‘seeing’ more of the world around me. I think next year I will carry my notepad again (with my camera). πŸ™‚

  3. And that’s what I like about blogging. Makes everything more engaging. Great photo of the clouds through the wires and makes me really appreciate a view that you caught without the wires! Great job, Lenore.

    Thank you for these. I rarely look up when I’m walking to work and that’s why I miss so much! I’m always staring at the ground, looking for money. Sigh.

    • You are welcome! Thanks for visiting. “I nearly missed” was a song I heard as a child. “Looking at the street and a crack in the sidewalk, an old tin can by the side of the road. I nearly missed the sunset. I nearly missed the shooting star going by ….” I am reminded of that song whenever I find myself looking down or up for too long.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
