it’s all in perspective…


While editing/clearing out photos yesterday I came across these images from a trip to California last January.  I love the starkness of the black and white shots from Yosemite and they made me think about the lens through which we all see the world. It’s all in perspective.  We can freely choose our perspectives and just one slight tweak in how we see things could change the course of our whole day, week or lives.  Look at the difference in these images.  How do they make you feel?

What if you looked at a challenging situation (or person) in your life with an ever so slightly, tiny bit different perspective?

I am trying this and WOW can it open up some different options.  Anything that might open up other possibilities seems worth exploration to me.  I highly recommend giving it a shot.  Hey, nothing to lose except hardwired resentment and outdated narratives right?

  1. Really nice shots Lisa and yes, crossing the street can yield surprisingly different views. I will often remove myself from a physical position and view things from somewhere different.
    One really great tool is a mirror. View your drawings and photographs in a mirror and that slight variation affords a whole new balance.
    The eagle shot is just beautiful in black and white- you may be able to develop a whole new gallery of works with just your older shots. B
