Unexpected Insight

When we look at the world around us in the same old way, we have the same old impressions, the same views, the same perspectives, etc.  In photography, we often try to find a different angle or a unique view, to make a picture more interesting by revealing or emphasizing hidden or not often seen details.  Isn't this true in life?  When we take a different path on our daily walk, we see a fresh view of our own little world.  When we try to resolve a problem by a method not used before, we get a surprising result.  When we really strive to understand another person's differing opinion, our capacity to love and be loved grows.  It's a beautiful weekend, (at least in my neck of the woods), so take your camera and find something you commonly see, then look for a new perspective and a different view!

Excellent thoughts as well as color and detail. I keep promising myself I'll do more of that, but then I don't.

Your visit and comment were much appreciated. And the words of your post are so true. It's easy to get "tunnel" vision.

That is a great thought. I have also been reminded that the Lord can make us into more then we can make ourselves if we but put our lives his his hands.
