cactus 3

While I was working on the golf course yesterday I saw this Cochemia Cactus blooming. Look at the delicate red blossoms on these thorny plants.

 

Makes me think about what I love about photography. In all the craziness of my daily life I could have not even seen this. Or I could have passed it by with a quick "that's p...retty" and moved on, forgetting it in a few minutes. Instead for a bit of time I sat there, focused (no pun intended) on the beauty of this little plant and really looked at it.

 

I love the "mindfullness of it. I often say "I see the world better through the viewfinder of a camera".See More
