27.6.08 - Beauty beneath our feet. This image was promted by an incident when I was out photographing with Steve yesterday. We were walking through some wildflowers when I spotted a tiny orchid. Steve said that he would never have seen it if I hadn't pointed it out. I had to be honest and agreed that if it hadn't been for the Dailies I wouldn't have noticed it either.
This silly little project has made me look at so many things with different eyes. I thought that I saw lots of details that others didn't see in landscapes, but I always tended to look for the big view, the dramatic sky, the snowcapped peak. Now I tend to look down a lot more, and a good job too or I would miss beautiful scenes like this, hidden down deep amongst the long summer grasses.
I thought long and hard about how to present this, and opted for a simple frame. Tomorrow morning I'm in town, and I will try to get some more street shots. Variety is certainly the spice of the Dailies :) - Light and Dreams Photography
This gallery is now a complete year of Daily photos, and although it has felt like a chore on some days I have to say that it has been great fun most of the time. When I started my intention was to challenge myself to try new things, especially to get out of my landscape comfort zone and make myself a more rounded photographer. I've certainly tried lots of new things, had a few disasters, some near misses, and lots of pleasant surprises. But the biggest pleasure is always reading other people's comments and checking out their galleries. There are so many talented people on here that it beggars belief. I really appreciate any comments, especially the constructive ones. I am now moving on to a new gallery for my second year.........
