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  Hey, nothing to lose except hardwired resentment and outdated narratives right?

I have had the good fortune of traveling in California with friends this week…heading home tonight. My bucket is absurdly full from my adventures and hijinx and all that I’ve experienced. I am so anxious to incorporate these California textures into my work. After traveling I always feel that I can see things through an altered perspective.
