    • Thanks, Steven. I just saw the cherries and the feather on the path like that, I didn’t change the composition but chose that angle out of a couple of photographs. I didn’t notice the little sprig of green at the time! I don’t know why I keep photographing these little white feathers that are scattered round the countryside here, caught up in plants or lying on the ground, there is something about them that touches me.

      • I guess photography is a means of discovering the small details that might otherwise go unnoticed. ūüôā

      • Yes, exactly, I find I am using my eyes in quite a different way since I started taking a camera out with me when I am walking.

      • That happened to me, too. When I started taking photographs seriously, it started seeing everything completely different.

      • I like your comment, Steven. I’m sure it is kind of good for one’s spirit, to be looking around at the world with a more focused intention, and also with a desire to record what one sees. What amazes me is how the slightest change of light changes everything; no moment is the same.

      • You’re so right. A big of cloud cover, a shift in the wind, and it’s an entirely different photo. It’s really opened my eyes to find beauty in the smallest of things — a forlorn flower, a patch of hay, the reflection off a leaf. It takes patience, but it’s so rewarding to capture a moment that will never be repeated.

      • Yes, Steven, that’s just how I feel. The light changes so swiftly, the transience is part of the beauty.
