Sometimes it’s wise to focus on nothing at all. Because we all know that when we focus on something, anything, it evokes emotion.
My perspectives have changed somewhat in recent years. My field of vision has been more finely honed to reveal a level of clarity I might have never known was possible had it not been for a few unexpected challenges in recent years.
I take more pictures with my iPhone these days, in an effort to capture what I SEE. That’s one thing I love about the iPhone…it’s always ready to point and shoot. I notice things now that might have otherwise escaped my attention completely. The burst of yellow wildflowers lining the endless mountain trails where I live. The tall grass of mountain meadows blowing in the wind with patterns of such rippling rhythmic perfection. The explosion of color in my own garden at home.
Photos I take with my iPhone remind me why I like to focus on nothing at all. Nothing but the HERE and NOW. Focus is highly over-rated. Field of vision is where it’s at.
Good ‘point.’ Pun intended. Yes, I love the way I can just point and shoot with my I-Phone, worrying more about the ‘big picture’ than a narrow focus.
