While standing in a field with the wind and rain chilling me to the bone, one of the photo participants reiterated a suggestion of Joel’s from class- to turn around, sometimes the best photo opportunity is behind you.
I have found this to be true more often than not.
I was totally uninspired by the wet field of poppies in front of me… so I turned around and found this beautiful dog sitting quietly, in the rain, watching me.
The trick is to be aware and present in the moment so that you don’t miss what is in front of you, or more often, what is behind you.
