Glorious details

JJWP781b Our eyes are oriented to take in the big picture. Our front-facing horizontal field of view including peripheral vision can cover as much as 270 degrees. That’s a whole panoramic world in one snap of our eyes. That wide image that we see however is made up of small glorious details which we sometimes miss. We must train ourselves to focus and see them. One thing I’ve learned in photography is that it is as much as taking in the particulars as it is capturing the complete image.

  4. Great pic! Helps me further realize that birds are truly — as paleontologists say — the descendents of the dinosaurs! … and that it’s getting to be time to trim my pet birds’ nails! Best wishes for 2014! 😉
