Beauty from a Different Perspective

 When I photographed this flower on the water I felt it just didn't work for me.
It seemed a bit flat and nondescript.
Though I could see the rocks more clearly the perspective just didn't do anything for me.
Moving I looked at the flower from a different perspective and snapped another photo.
The light on the water just sang to my heart.
Yes, this is what I wanted the ebb and flow of the water around the beauty of one pink flower.

This example reminded me that it is sometimes important to look at a situation, maybe a
problem, or just a decision to be made from different angles or perspectives.
In this different angle we see the beauty, see something differently, or see more clearly.

Happy weekend, dear friends!
Take time to look from a new perspective and angle.
Notice what you Notice.

Well put Marilyn, and I too prefer the second photo.

Great contrast in those two photos! It demonstrates how people can see different things even though it is perceived to be the same.

I liked the first photo very much until I saw the second and yes, I agree with you. One of my key photo rules is look up, down, behind, left and right and move about. You always see things differently.

It's a great example! Thank you!

Beautiful photos, and so true!

Beautiful! I love both photos! It reminds me of Escher's Three Worlds, which shows the world above reflected in the water, while the fishes move beneath in their own world.

VERY remarkable the subtle differences in both photos! And I think both have wonderful things to offer the heart--yes, BOTH! :o) But there is something about the ripple-sensation in the second photo--like life breathing.... LOVELY! That's one of the many great things about taking photo, leaning how to see! :o) Happy Weekend, Marilyn ((HUGS))
