Perception by Estela Caballero

If perception is reality, here’s to making your own!  The two pictures below show a Dahlia, the same flower, just seconds apart.

Fresh Looks

I’m not that great of a photographer.  It’s the lessons and the insight gained that keep me interested.  I get lucky every once in a while and take a shot that amazes.  This one of the Dahlia flower above isn’t one of them.

I had been cutting off the flowers run over by the lawnmower wheels to give the buds some additional energy for the short lived blooms.

It was still a beautiful flower laying there on the gravel.  I picked it up and held it to the sky.  Take a step back.  Crouch down.  Hold something you’ve come to see one way in a different light or press it up against the sky.  We can all benefit from fresh perspective.

If perception is reality– make your own!
