Details

Every journey I’ve taken has presented me with something I’ve never experienced - food, architecture, scenery, local styles.  With repeat journeys, like those to visit family or places I’ve been before, new experiences come from things like learning that someone I’ve known a long time has a new skill or is doing something totally unexpected, or discovering a place or scene I hadn’t seen in the past.

When I think of my photographic journey, my expectation is essentially the same.  I want to pursue new subjects and see things that may have always been there but may not have previously presented themselves.  I hope doing so will provide benefit to me.  Is that path of the journey one I want to continue following, or is it one that I appreciate but find less interesting?

One of the things I tried to do as I wandered around France was to pay attention to the details surrounding me.  Simply doing so presented interesting shapes, colors, textures, and scenes I likely would have missed at a different point.

  Architectural details were easy to find at Mont St-Michel, France.  I really like the rusted keyhole.  I only wish I had concentrated a bit more to ensure the prominent parts of the subject were all in clear focus, highlighting the dimension of learning along the way.
