Two Perspectives

by | Mar 5, 2011 | Perspective | 1 comment

Most people are happy when spring begins to appear. But one sad thing about spring coming is that all the snow melts. Then it rains. And rains. And then, because it’s really still winter, it gets cold again and everything turns to ice. Most people are unhappy about that.

But there is always two ways of looking at things. I like ice because it’s cool stuff to take pictures of. For example, I was hiking through the woods the other day, and I couldn’t believe how beautiful the forest was: every twig was covered in ice and the sun was setting the entire forest to shimmering and dancing in it’s light!

Or were the twigs covered in ice? Sky is always richer blue looking away from the sun, so I turned around to look for better color in my pictures . . . there in front of me was the ugly brown forest. I couldn’t believe it. Same forest, two different levels of beauty, wholly dependent on perspective.
