Look Closer

April 20, 2012

Here’s an idea for getting more out of your day: look closer! Pay attention to textures and surfaces around you during your daily routine. Fabrics, walls, furniture, and facades that you think are beautiful. You’ll find a lot of color and beauty where you least expect it. When you find something you like, photograph it! Soon you’ll have an inventory of pretty macro-visuals to muse over. Here’s a few I collected.

Also, “But I’m not a photographer!” has no merit here as an argument. It takes about 15 seconds to download a good camera phone app (my favorite is Retrocam for taking a lot of pics that you don’t need to upload in order to save, as with some versions of Instagram). That’s the beauty of modern technology.
