When it take photos, it’s of things that catch my eye in a particular way. Or rather: they catch my eye, and I respond in a particular way. I’m “gripped” by what I’m seeing, and it brings me right into the present moment (a space I otherwise often struggle to inhabit …!) And on those occasions where I hurry on, and don’t stop to take it in, to capture the experience in some way, I feel a real twinge of regret; the acknowledgment of an opportunity missed.
As was the case today, these opportunities often present themselves when I’m out walking; and – I also notice – quite often involve reflections.
