A Day to Muddle in the Puddles

If you were lucky enough to receive some much needed rain this morning, take a minute to go outside and muddle around in the puddles before the sun dries them up. Just appreciate the rain. Yes, walk aimlessly for a bit and allow for clarity to appear in your landscape. And if you need to understand more about your space, take photographs. Do it before everything wakes up this spring and it is amazing what you can see, even if it’s your own reflection. It’s sort of like celebrating your own Groundhog Day.

Leon Levinstein reminds us of the importance of capturing 'never again' moments in photos. “I walk, I look, I see, I stop, I photograph.” There’s something so simple yet so revealing in this activity. And as Levinstein points us, “A good photograph will prove to the viewer how little our eyes permit us to see. Most people only see what they have always seen and what they expect to see. Where a photographer, if he’s good, will see everything.”
