“What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing.”

– C.S. Lewis

Perception is a wonderful thing. Many go through their lives seeing what they choose to see. Many see what they want to see but also allow themselves to recognise what others see too – or at least acknowledge that there are other visions out there. Some see everything, and other see the bare bones of the world around us. Maybe it sounds confusing, but I think it makes sense – if you see…

I love Photography because if you’re desperate enough for a shot – like I am sometimes when doing the photo a day challenge – you’ll see something you’ve shot before in a completely different light. It’s mind-blowing when that happens. Especially if you’re busy and haven’t the time to be inspired.

Inspiration can hit when the sun breaks through the clouds and shines on an object – today that was a piece of jewellery I’d found whilst sorting out. So I dug around for some matching bits, grabbed the very fine fishing wire and ten minutes later I had my shots.

I like it when that happens. Shooting nature is great, but sometimes I feel like I’m taking the easy route by snapping something that is laid out in front of me, waiting to be snapped. So taking a bit more time and effort feels good!

I also like the way my camera adds a shiny ping to the images when the sun bounces off of them – sort of like the cheesy smile flash! It’s quite good like that, in the right lights. Lens flare – amateur but looks pretty!
