Reflecting A Sharpened Sense

Ever since I joined City Daily Photo Blog (CDPB), I realized my attention for details has sharpened impressively. I became more visually sensitive of my surrounding. I am always looking at things from a different angle or perspective, with the hope to capture them with my lenses in an attractive way.

This photo is one of the subjects that I would easily missed in the past without a glance at all. This is a very common sight during Wesak. Devotees will go to temple and offer lights and perfumed incense to the Buddha. I would usually use the devotees for my photography subject. But who knows, this time I caught the devotees through another object, i.e. the shining urn! What a creative way of looking at my subjects!

I am glad by joining CDPB, subconsciously I am improving my photo composition! Hope it is the same for all of you too. :P

I agree, J.C. I have changed for the better in terms of being more observant and mindful of my surroundings. That's good since we are to do that as Buddhists, no? :) I am enjoying catching up on your posts. Have a great weekend!

Beautiful reflection!!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
