Dealing with the Weeds….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Sometimes in life you are dealt weeds.  I know, this requires a little explanation…. I like to think that weeds are a necessary part of life.  They allow us to recognize and fully appreciate the beautiful things in life…beautiful people, beautiful weather, beautiful scenery, beautiful pictures, flowers, nature, etc…  There is a ying and yang for every situation and the yang is as necessary for total awareness as the ying is.  Good/Evil, Bold/Shy, Beautiful/Ugly, opposites that are necessary to understand each concept.  Without good you cannot understand evil, you cannot be bold if you don’t know shy and the same holds true for beauty and ugliness.  With that said… sometimes, you are dealt weeds!  It could be a really bad picture or you could get the best picture ever.  There is something to be said for the everyday ordinary things in life that teach us the upside of living, the little things that help us appreciate the beauty that surrounds us daily.  When composing pictures next time out, take the time to shoot a few weeds and see what you come up with.
