A different focus for the new year

I oftentimes focus too much on the obvious, in photography and in life. But little by little, I am learning to focus more on things often ignored but equally essential. Like these calyces of a rose. Were it not for them this rose might not have survived the elements when it was yet a bud. And so as a new year begins, it is but fitting for me to think about re-focusing on things often overlooked yet just as relevant and just as important in the whole scheme of things. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU, MY FRIENDS!
