Photos on the journey #489 – Leaves at the bottom of the bubbles.

Somedays you just have to look harder to find what is right in front of you.

It was a bit windy yesterday, and I sat by our little fountain while trying to make an image of a mud dauber at work. He was fighting the wind has much or more than me. I gave up attempting to stay in focus in the wind. He stayed with it and made me feel all the more a sluggard. I turned my attention to the slower moving bubbles and was fascinated how I could see the sharp image of the leaves on the bottom of the fountain in clear focus. I added some stars to the specular highlights via Knoll Light Factory photoshop plug in.

Does make oneself to try to be more mindful and take what you are given, not just what you want.

“Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.” 1 Corinthians 13:12Sometimes things are not as they appear, we must learn to see the light and find focus.Look at your reflections on your journey and change what you don’t like†††nada te turbe†††jim

Where do your ideas come from ? My problem has never been getting  ideas, it is acting on them. I have been trying to apply Scott Belsky’s (BEHANCE) thoughts from his book Making Ideas Happen .  He tells us that “Our ideas become less interesting as we realize the implied responsibilities and sheer volume of work required to execute them. The easiest and most seductive escape from your project is the most dangerous one: a new idea!!! New ideas offer a quick return to the high energy and commitment zone, but they also cause us to lose focus. ”  ….can I get an amen ?……stay focused, stay on your journey††† nada te turbe††jim
