river ice: up close
I learn more when I am fully engaged in life. Being with people and giving them my full attention causes me to notice what I would have otherwise missed. It helps me to give others what they ultimately need.
Giving my full attention to my surroundings causes me to notice things I would have missed had I been distracted. I notice details like the shape of the ice and the water flowing over it. I notice where the shadow of the cattails lies on the water. Being fully engaged in life makes me a good photographer and a better person.
