A friend of mine recently came to the barn for the first time. He’s a professional photographer. Actually, his name is Paul Moore.
I love how sensitive Paul’s eye is to beauty. Sometimes where you least expect it. He finds beauty in what might appear mundane – especially in nature. He can uncover exquisite color and detail in the ordinary bark of a tree.
Instinctively he took pictures that day – then went on his way.
When he showed me the photos, I was reminded why I love photography. It’s all about seeing. You don’t do photography with your eyes shut.
You look. You see. You observe.
And no two people see any one thing in the exact same way.
So when I looked at Paul’s photos, I was looking through his lens, his perspective. I was seeing the familiar in a fresh, new way.
I think it’s important to live this life looking from many perspectives. It’s important to observe from many angles. It’s important to see what others see. It’s how we learn, how we expand – even if we end up liking our own view better.
And sometimes there is no “better”. It’s simply two different views.
I invite you to view Paul’s photos and see what he saw. Actually, I think he lets you feel what he felt. If you’ve not made it to the barn yet, you’ll see why I love it so much. If you have been already, you can look at it through a new set of eyes.
