This close-up of our cute feline beast is one example of focusing on the few inches in front of your camera.
Life often teaches us to focus on the big picture. But it’s also a good idea to sometimes pay more attention to what’s right in front of you. I explored a photographic exercise to look more closely at my immediate surroundings and uncovered some cool imagery in the smaller spaces. Here’s what I found.
From the Lester Garden
This is the tomato we will eat tonight.
Aging Beach Fence Post
The rings of time are locked in by thick paint to help battle against the elements.
My Garage Door Light’s Motion Sensor
This sentry covered in cobwebs looks onto my driveway. The red LED indicates it has spotted its moving target.
HP Tango Printer’s Cylon Glow
The always-on light moves horizontally and changes color to communicate with me. My printer’s designers are clearly fans of “Battlestar Galactica.”
My Shirt Collar
They say it’s the little things. I am happy when my collar stays straight throughout my work day.
The Key to Control
Why isn’t this the alpha key on every keyboard?
Our piano demonstrates the art of collaboration to our son.
Bird on the Beach
This seagull walked up behind me to beg for food on Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, CT. Its piercing stare had the power of a Jedi mind trick.
Looking More Closely at my Life
Snapping these photos helped me to see more of what’s in plain sight during my day-to-day activities.
I highly recommend you try it!
