I’m learning, with the assist of a few cameras, my eyes (with and without glasses!), and my sense of gratitude, to may more attention to nature and the many amazing things she has to show us on a regular basis.
I consider the above shot to be a simple photo. There’s not much happening in it. There’s a duck silhouetted in a lake a few hours after dawn. Its movements caused a circular ripple effect which thankfully lasted long enough for me to a. notice it happening, and b. to raise the camera and press the shutter.
And yet, it’s a shot that makes me smile, relax, and feel a bit of wonder that something so simple could also possess so much power.
I didn’t think to ask the duck if it felt the same way I did; probably wouldn’t have bothered answering seeing how ducks get to enjoy experiences like this pretty much all the time.
It’s all good though. For now I’ll just be glad I paid attention to what Nature had to show me that day… oh, and for having a camera at the ready!
