Returning to the notion of discovering ‘the sacred in the ordinary’ I mentioned in an earlier post. I think one of the things that really excites me is the re-imagining of familiar objects or realizing the beauty of things you see often.
This photo of the horse and rider was taken near the office I worked in for 10 years - I went past it every day and although I have always liked it, I realized I had never really looked at it before, let alone photographed it, or payed attention to the relationship with its immediate environment including the tree and the building.
This photo was taken on the lunch time photo shoot I did with my colleague who brought her DLSR for me to experiment with. As we were heading back I stopped at the fish stall in the market to buy supper and took this picture of these beautiful Scallops - again not a subject I had previously considered.
My third example is of footprints in the sand which I took last summer - something you see often if you spend much time on the beach but fascinating in terms of form and texture.
