I become so focused on my photography, that sometimes I forget to look up and just enjoy the moment.
The other day, I was intent on photographing this robin while I was at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens:
What appealed to me were the rich colors of the feathers on its back, as well as the distinctiveness of the white around its eye:
Yes, I can photograph robins in the backyard and I have (click here to see the momma robin outwitting me). But when I’m at the gardens, I photograph anything that appeals to me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But I always come back with a lot of pictures even on the days I plan on only walking.
