Once upon a time I would see things. Now I ‘see’ things.
Strange thoughts, but I’m sure that if you have creativity in your heart you will know what I mean. And when you have set yourself a challenge like I have this phenomenon is magnified a hundred fold.
Take today’s photo for example. Mindless graffiti on the footpath? Possibly. A deliberate attempt to make people feel good inside when they walk over it? More likely. A photo opportunity? Most definitely.
I walked over this on my way into work. I had to walk over it on the way back to my car. And I did walk over it. Then I called myself an idiot, stopped and went back with my phone and took this photo. Because I ‘saw’ it and wanted to record it and share it so that others could also see.
