My Sunday Photo
A Front Garden Shot
Attentive / Exploring / Discovering photography
I didn’t realise how inspiring people’s front gardens can be, until I started taking pictures of flowers on my bridge camera, and joining in with photography blog link parties.
There is so much beauty to be discovered … so much loveliness awaiting split second captures … in many front gardens … on many sidewalks.
I continue to be amazed by what my camera sees that I don’t without it; the detail it captures that escapes my eyes.
It’s not that I don’t look; it’s just that my camera, with my help, is able to focus on a moment in time in a way that I can’t.
I look to the side as I saunter down the road; I glance at front gardens when I pass by, and hope no one thinks I’m weird.
I stop when I see something that catches my attention … I get and raise my camera with expectation … I look … zoom … adjust … I hesitate until it looks just right … I snap … I hope no one is concerned about my actions. 🙂
My camera seems to see more in that split second than my eyes appears to take in … the movement, the colours, the pretty, and even the ugly.
It’s incredible too how each shot taken within seconds apart can be different; depending on the lighting, the distance between the camera and the object, how steady the camera is, and other factors I’m not aware of.
… incredible sights of such lovelies in creation … a #beautyinthehaze of what life sometimes is
You know though, when you’ve got the better one!
I tend to stop after each snap to take a look at my capture, and I’m always so pleased when I feel like I’ve got THE SHOT; a signal that it’s time to move on from that front garden until another time. 🙂
Do you find front gardens inspiring? Which of my 2 snaps do you think is the better shot?
