3.26.2014 - stop to smell the roses...

I am as guilty as anyone else, seeing something stunning from my car window, then not stopping to take a photo, dismissing it  with "oh, I'll stop on the way back".  The time is never be as good as right now.  So stop, park the car, get out and grab your phone (AKA camera) one simple click & you have it.  

While this post is not at all a celebration of roses or color, it's about making the time to stop and take note.  

I see shadows, rhythm, pattern and joy in these photos.  I can tell you exactly where they were taken & how overwhelmed I was upon discovering their 'possibility'.

Black & white strips away all the distraction of color and takes it to a raw presence of form, proportion and order.  Next time, just stop.
