Looking, People, Photos, Seeing



I have always enjoyed taking photos. Now that I am writing for HubGarden I want to use all my own photos for my articles. I have started thinking about suitable images and where I can take the photos I need to capture these images. Many times an image of a person would be suitable but people frequently donít want their photo displayed so publicly. I have started looking for paintings and mosaics on walls and sculptures to photograph. I have come to the realisation I often look without actually seeing.

Mosaic at Salisbury Railway Station
Last week I got off the train at a station where I had noticed some paintings of people close by. When I disembarked I saw there are many suitable paintings and a colourful mosaic which will be useful at the station itself. I have got off at this particular station several times in the last year and I never saw all this wonderful art work. I wonder how many other people are the same.

Because I have particular ideas for articles in mind I was able to take many suitable photos. I focused in on particular images that will serve to illustrate specific articles. I noticed one small piece of a painting which portrays someone who is angry. This will be useful at some stage.

I also caught the tram that day. I have been on the tram a number of times to visit a friend and of course it always takes exactly the same route. There are four stops where there are art works worth photographing. Near one stop there is an amazing sculpture of a giraffe. I hadnít noticed until I started to look for this type of thing. I guess I am looking with new eyes. It is amazing what you see when you are looking. with an open mind and eyes wide open.

This is the same in other aspects of life. Generally, when you look for the good in everyday things you find it. It is always there but if you arenít looking for it you donít see it. Likewise if you expect people to be mean and hurtful you will notice more of this. The more you look for it, the more you see it. Of course this type of thing is more complicated than just seeing what we are looking for. We tend to give off a negative or positive energy which attracts more of the same.

Sometimes a major event happens in your life and suddenly you tune in to that event all around you. When my father died it seemed just about every movie and television program I saw had something to do with a death. I am guessing it wasnít that this theme was a lot more prevalent at that time. I think I just noticed it.

I will continue to look for interesting things relevant to what I write about so I can build up my collection of photos. I wonder else I will now see because I am looking.
