“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.”
This is one of my favorite quotes that describes what I feel makes every photographer unique. Photography allows us the amazing ability to share with others our unique ‘ways of seeing’ and experiencing life. It makes you slow down and notice things that usually go unnoticed in our ever-so-busy life.
Here are some fun things I’ve seen in seemingly mundane places. Do you see what I see?
Can you guess where I saw this smiley looking at me?
It is also interesting how hard it is to ‘un-see’ something you’ve seen. This last image won a merit in the Oregon Professional Photographers Association’ image competition. But it almost didn’t make it because what was obvious to me (the two faces in a parting kiss), was not quite seen by all the judges! Glad they eventually did! 🙂 Did you?!
