point of view

There is a tendency to want to capture everything at its peak – the exact moment of perfect expression between striving and declining. That is a beautiful moment, to be sure. But to see with fresh eyes, I like to observe the full cycle. Those other moments – outside of the 15 minutes of fame – tell the true story and reveal beauty of their own.

  1. Like Mimi, I agree. The perfection of a subject is fleeting; the before—and after—are perhaps even more revealing & expressive.

  2. I agree, if I appreciate the ‘almost blooming’, I think I appreciate the ‘full bloom’ even more. Thank you for the picture and sharing the anemone.
