Weekly Photo Challenge: Eye Spy
Ever since I bought my first interchangeable lens camera, I began to look at everything differently. Well, it’s not exactly that. I began to look at everything, notice details of everything: the bark on a tree; the colors and patterns of a landscape; someone’s silhouette against the light; Dapper G sleeping. And even closer: water dripping from the tip of a leaf; my cat’s whiskers; lace on an old hat; peeling rust on a hinge…
I spy everything now. I see objects and people more clearly. Beyond the lens of my camera, beyond my corrected myopic vision, I somehow see with fresher eyes. And it’s given me so much pleasure.
Daily Gratitude: a good 2-mile jog along the bay; a multitude of birds at my feeders; the scent of evergreens
Quote of the Day: (Even though Autumn is waning, this is a great quote.)
This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders. ~Sarah Orne Jewett
