One of the ways
fall in love
with the prairie
is with focus.
I love these
purple cone flower
almost as much
I love sunflowers.
myself in their beauty
what is simply along the roadside.
And that makes me
for the road --
for seasons --
How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways . . .
How many angles,
how many views,
how many perspectives,
how many stages,
how many ways
can I photograph a purple cone flower
so that each view is unique?
so that each view takes the breath?
so that each view increases the love for here and now?
If you would like to spend some time
getting more comfortable with your camera
and learning some creative ways to "focus and fall in love with here and now"
