I’m blogging in a totally different vein this morning (no snow). I don’t know what this plant is but I spied it as we were getting ready to get back on the ship in Curacao. What drew me in was the size of the leaves. They were as big as a dinner plate. I noticed how perfect and green each leaf was, and yes, I did notice the veins but it wasn’t until later when I was examining the photo that those veins really popped! I’m finding that I actually see more when looking through the lens of a camera than I actually see in real life. This is not news – all photographers feel the same way. But I hadn’t even noticed the water droplets! I can only imagine what wonders go over my head every day. My lesson learned? Slow down and try to see more in the moment. The perfect photo presents itself and is over in a heart-beat – you don’t usually get a second chance.
