'The task is...not so much to see what no one has yet seen; but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees.' - Erwin Schrodinger
I posted the above image on Flickr for the Be Still 52 class before Christmas. This was my caption:
This 'vase' is actually an old light fixture I found in the back of a closet and was going to throw away until my 13 year old daughter stopped me. My daughter told me it looked like something I would take a picture of and it had great texture. Wow, was she right. So I kept it.
My daughter showed me what I didn't see. I was looking at a dirty old light fixture that was taking up space in my closet. Why would I want to take a picture of that? She could see through the dust. She saw the texture and the shape of the light fixture and reminded me to look closer, change my perspective.
This week my husband found another 'vase' for me to play with. I like the warmer feel to the second image, especially since it is so cold outside.
Old man winter is difficult to love. I keep trying. Now I feel he is giving me the cold shoulder since it was -7° F actual temperature when I woke up yesterday morning. But I will continue finding reasons to be grateful for him. Today I am grateful for old man winter because he keeps away many bugs that cannot live in cold weather, no fire ants here. This also makes the bugs we do have somewhat smaller than warmer climates. Thank you old man winter!
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Friday Finds. My images were tweaked in Lightroom and textured in PS Elements with Kim's textures waterfront1_bestill and flow. My Find is a 'vase' from my husband and to keep an open mind or I might just miss something beautiful.
Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!!
