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!
