Tess has such a good eye. She will spot things long before I do and sometimes she will see things that I have never seen. Take for example this photo she took at the Dallas Arboretum. As many times as I have been there, I have never looked at this sculpture closely. Well, she not only looked at it but she looked through it. There was an opening and when she looked through the opening, she found that it framed a decorative feature in another garden. I was amazed!
She is always sending me photos so it takes a bit to go through all of them. I may even need to get another external hard drive to hold all the photos! This next one I pointed out to her when we were at the zoo. I liked how the backlighting emphasized the monkey’s hair and she caught it.
Early on, Tess was intrigued by bugs of one kind or another and I think she sends me the creepy spiders just to hear me go “Ewwwwwww!” And now that she has her macro lense, there is no telling what she might be shooting next.
Now I could go on and on… and that is the point. Photography becomes an obsession. Always looking for the next shot. Always trying to do better. Always trying to read the light. Always looking to freeze a moment for all to see. One of my all time favorites is this one. It has a special charm and it just makes me smile!
