WHAT I SEE
I’ve gotten into the habit on the weekends to take my iPhone instead of my iPod on my walks and have been taking pictures of things that grab my attention. I’ve learned that what catches my attention are more patterns and colors and not entire images. Example: On my Saturday walk, this pine cone caught my eye, but not the whole thing, just the sort of spiral pattern on one end –
The colors of this plant, maybe some sort of ornamental cabbage?, was what first caught my eye, this was my first impression photo, one where I didn’t know that the zoom was activated; so, the pic was a total surprise when I got home and looked at it.
I went back to get another look and got the whole plant this time. Somehow, it’s not nearly as interesting or intense as a whole. The zoomed photo makes me think of pictures of giant clams in the ocean I’d see in National Geographic when I was a kid, with a row of eyes along the edge of their shells. Can you see them?
I see a mosaic in this tree’s leaves.
Here’s the latest installment in Babysis, seven weeks and sooooooooo cute! Is there anything sweeter than a new smile?
