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

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!
