What do we see?


What we see depends mainly on what we look for. 
John Lubbock 1834-1913


I found this quote on Facebook and it fit perfectly with my seed pod photos.

John also said ''Happiness is a thing to be practiced, like the violin''



this seed pod on our Dwarf Poinciana made me feel happy

Absolutely true quotes. I do think practicing photography helps us see more of the world about us...:)

I really like the curve of the seed pods.
There is something very musical about it.

It is like a modern sculpture. I see things like that I'm glad I know someone else with the same vision.

Dee said...

The shape of the pod would have drawn me to it also. It looks as if it was frozen in the midst of a dance. You have a photographers heart and artistic vision....it is a gift.

Dee said...

I am glad you took the time to share these photos with us. I saw 'upside down rabbit ears" in each one! I know...SILLY! But see something like that makes me happy.

The clarity of the pod is stunning in contrast to the blurred background. My blurred vision is getting better but will never again be as sharp.
