A thought:

Perhaps the joy of us as photographer is this: To discover beauty in unexpected places!

Uncovering beauty in the mysterious world in which we live in

The joy of photography, monochrome, flash, etc is this:

Photographing the world TRANSFORMS the world, and also uncovers hidden beauty.

For example, I don’t see the world in monochrome, I see the world in color. However when I shoot with RICOH GR II/RICOH GR III in high contrast monochrome preview JPEG, I SEE the world in monochrome which makes the world simpler, more elegant, more interesting, and more beautiful.

Photography as “Eye Spy”/”Where’s Waldo”

For the most part, we all see and witness similar things in ’embodied reality’. But our skill and passion in photography is this:

See and uncover beauty where others don’t see it (beauty in the mundane/everyday).

SHOOT ON!
