As of last week, I have been studying some 'fine arts' photography and attempted my own take at it when I went for a stroll through my neighborhood. The idea is to capture detailed moments that often go unnoticed in the everyday routine. Images of symmetry, texture, form, color, and life. I've noticed that shadows play a huge part in these stories, and not having a "professional" camera, I am quite proud of what I captured. I will continue to post my city views in the future, because I had so much fun doing this and seeing things in a different perspective.
Later that day, Jose and I went to the 99 cent store which I always manage to leave spending at least $20 on who knows what. But it is always a lot of fun.
The point of this post was to see my own life from a different direction. When I challenged myself to see the world around me in a different life, it really helped me notice the details I often miss. I look at the photos and am instantly transported back to that beautiful day. Don't limit yourself to seeing the world one way. Try different things. Approach life with new questions, find hidden meanings and create your own answers.
